The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from Meteorologist Kevin Appleby:
Saturday saw humidity levels remain relatively low as temperatures reached the upper 70s and lower 80s. As we progress through the evening, hit-or-miss showers are expected, tapering after midnight.
A southerly wind will usher in higher dew points for the overnight. This will keep temperatures higher than they’ve been the past few nights.
Sunday is the first in a series of hot and humid days that we will experience in the Capital Region. Some patchy fog is possible once again early in the morning.
Clouds will be scattered throughout the day. High temperatures will reach the 80s in what is shaping up to be the coolest day of the next five.
Labor Day looks predominantly dry, although some recent model guidance suggests a stray shower or two in the morning – nothing that will disrupt any outdoor BBQs and other activities. It also won’t be enough to disrupt our march to the 90 degree mark, as our forecast for Albany currently calls for.
Tuesday and Wednesday will be marked by record-challenging heat. I think Wednesday ends up being slightly warmer than Tuesday, even with some more clouds entering the picture later in the day.
Clouds will increase Thursday, but we should make one more push for 90. A front will swing through some time in the late Thursday – early Saturday timeframe.
Model guidance is struggling with the speed of this heat-suppressing front, but it will act to knock down temperatures entering next weekend.
