The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from meteorologist Kevin Appleby:
Well, to say Saturday wasn’t the best weather day in the Capital Region is an understatement. Temperatures held steady in the 50s, periods of rain continued, especially east of the Hudson… The winds picked up, and a cool drizzle persisted once the steadier rains departed the area.
The glass half-full in me says the worst of the weather is now over… But the wind will now be the most prominent feature of our weather going into Sunday. Wind gusts could exceed 35 MPH at times overnight with temperatures slowly dropping into the 40s.
Sunday will see a mostly dry start, but some wrap-around moisture in association with our system will swing back down from the north during the afternoon hours.
In the highest terrain of the Berkshires, Catskills, and especially the Adirondacks, some of this moisture will reach the ground as snow, although little to no snow accumulation is expected.
Not much movement is expected on the temperature front Sunday, with everyone struggling to even reach 50. Winds will slowly subside as the day progresses.
Winds will continue to die down throughout Monday as high pressure moves in from the northwest. Temperatures Monday will top out a few degrees below average after a cloudier start to the day.
Tuesday morning looks to be our chilliest morning since the middle of May, with widespread 20s and lower 30s expected by daybreak. Frost is expected. By the afternoon, temperatures will max out right around average for this time of year with partly to mostly cloudy skies.
Temperatures will spike well-above average for Wednesday and Thursday with partly sunny skies. A shower is possible in the Adirondacks Thursday.
Temperatures will begin to cool down by the upcoming weekend, although model guidance varies widely at this time in just how quickly this cool down occurs… Either way, by Halloween, temperatures are expected to be below average, with the next best chance of precipitation coming next Monday.
