Despite a quiet Thursday morning, scattered showers and thunderstorms bubble up mid-afternoon into this evening. A few storms may be strong to severe, particularly over northern New York and western Vermont. As always, I’ll break it down and we’ll get a look into the weekend, too.
Thursday – Despite a few overnight light showers and sprinkles, morning sunshine is on tap early, eventually replaced by increasing early afternoon clouds. The temp reaches from the mid 40s to mid 50s early, into the low to mid 70s just after midday. South breeze 10 to 15 mph. Starting between 2-4 PM, scattered showers and thunderstorms will move from central New York into northern/eastern New York, out ahead of an approaching surface cold front.
A few storms may be strong to severe, potentially producing small hail and localized damaging wind gusts. Though heavy rain is likely in those storms, flash flooding is not anticipated to the level some experienced Sunday and Monday. That is because storms will be moving really quickly and won’t linger in one location for long. The only exception would be if more than one storm moves over the same spot. Storms shift into Vermont and New Hampshire by late afternoon into the evening, eventually clearing out around 10 PM to Midnight.
Tonight – Showers linger into early Friday, particularly over higher elevations. Low temp in the 50s.
Friday – Mostly cloudy throughout the morning, then slowly becoming partly sunny by the afternoon. Cooler, mid to upper 60s, and breezy with a north wind around 15-25 mph.
Saturday – Morning sunshine, then increasing clouds with late day rain likely. Low 70s.
Sunday – Mostly cloudy early, becoming partly sunny gradually. Low 70s.
Monday – Mostly to partly sunny with a slight chance for an isolated shower. Low 70s.
Have a great day!
