Latest forecast from Meteorologist Rob Lindenmuth
Well we made it to nearly 90 degrees this afternoon, for the last official weekend of summer. Another warm and humid overnight is expected with some areas of fog developing by Monday morning but most of us will remain dry aside from a few isolated showers.
Monday will begin dry for us through the first half of the afternoon with some sunshine as well, but we will be slightly cooler than what we have seen over the last few days out ahead of the remnants of Florence.
Speaking of Florence, the storm is now classified as a tropical depression and has maximum winds of about 35 mph... She is moving north at 14 mph, so her forward speed has begun to pickup but devastating flooding is still occurring as the rain continues to fall in already devastated areas.
Some preliminary rainfall totals showing that Florence has dropped over 30 inches of rain, setting new state records for the amount of rainfall from one tropical system in the state of North Carolina.
By late Monday night and for the start of Tuesday we will begin to receive the impacts from the remnants of Florence. Tuesday could start off rather wet with moderate to heavy rainfall possible, even a few rumbles of thunder not out of the question.
When all is said and done we could receive anywhere from 2-3 inches of rainfall, but there will be a pretty sharp cutoff the further north you go. The Northern Adirondacks may only see a quarter of an inch of rainfall from this system.
Once that clears, Wednesday and Thursday look cooler with highs in the mid 70's and some sunshine, a warm front pushing through late Thursday into the start of Friday may spark a few showers overnight Thursday and early on on Friday. Friday will be pretty breezy and warm before a cold front pushes through and gives us a refreshing northwesterly breeze and cooler temperatures for the first official weekend of fall.
