Good morning! Happy Friday!
Friday starts off with patchy valley fog, giving way by mid to late morning to a mix of sun and clouds. Warm and muggy; the temp cruises right back up into the 80s. South breeze 10 to 15 mph. While there may be some morning rain and thunder over the Adirondacks, most stay dry through lunchtime. This afternoon, thunderstorms start bubbling up over area mountains. Storms may produce small hail, gusty wind and torrential downpours. The best atmospheric dynamics for strong to severe storms will be over New York’s North Country, with a focus between the St. Lawrence Valley and Adirondacks.
Tonight, that sky is mostly cloudy with scattered showers. There may be a few nocturnal rumbles of thunder, but the severe weather threat wanes after sunset. Low temp, mild, mid 60s to around 70 degrees.
Saturday, a cold front will be swinging through from west to east with a line of showers out of ahead of it. The day isn’t a washout, but don’t count on too much sun. From early to late morning, rain works east over northern New York and into the Champlain Valley. East of the Champlain Valley, a few t’storms may pop up during the afternoon. Upper 70s. South wind, shifting to out of the west with the frontal passage, 5-15 mph. Sunday is the nicer day this weekend, and it’ll be quite refreshing, too! Look for sunshine and mid 70s to cap off the weekend.
Have a wonderful day! And an awesome weekend!
