The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from meteorologist Matt Mackie:
Happy Sunday! It won’t be the brightest day today, with mid to high level clouds traversing the region and only occasional sunny breaks. At least it will stay dry! And a breeze out of the south will help temperatures climb to the upper 40’s.
President’s Day looks cloudy as well, with a few scattered showers during the late morning/afternoon. It’s far from a washout – but still, tossing an umbrella in the trunk as you leave on Monday isn’t a bad idea.
Tuesday brings a more impactful weather system. With chilly temps in place during the morning, a brief period of snow is possible – especially west of the capital district where the precipitation arrives earliest in the day. But with temps warming to the low 40’s during the afternoon, most of what we see in the valleys will consist of rain.
In the mountains (especially up north in the ADKs and Greens) it should stay colder for longer – so accumulating snow is more likely.
Most of Wednesday looks quiet and cloudy. Late in the evening, more wintry mix could arrive. Temps drop to the upper 20’s overnight and into Thursday morning, so at least some snow and/or wintry mix is likely in the valleys. But with temperatures back up into the upper 30’s that afternoon, it will again flip over to rain at some point.
Friday is chillier and blustery behind that system. Saturday looks cold, with morning lows around 10 degrees and afternoon highs in the 20’s. Plain ol’ snow showers are in the forecast!
