Weather: Short window of clearing before Friday storms (7/26/2018)


Video News

The latest batch of rain has moved east Thursday night. Most of us got a decent hit (over .75″) or rain in the last 24 hours, there’s quite a bit of moisture laying on the ground. As temps cool tonight, you’ll have to be careful of areas of dense fog. It’ll still be warm overnight with lows in the 60s but you will notice it’s a little less muggy than it has been.

On Friday, showers and a few thunderstorms move through northern New York during the morning. They’ll move east into Vermont and New Hampshire after lunch. The strongest storms will put down heavy rain and 40-60mph wind. The overall severe threat is low, the best chance at having a storm put down winds over 58mph will be in southern Vermont. Friday night, storms weaken and most end but a few showers linger into early Saturday; lows drop into the low 60s.

Saturday, there will be plenty of dry time but isolated showers and perhaps a thunderstorm will bubble up during the afternoon. I wouldn’t cancel plans but if you’ve got outdoor stuff going on, keep an ear open for thunder. Meanwhile, highs will get into the low 80s.

Sunday, we finally get quiet and a little comfortable. Expect mostly sunny skies with highs in the low 80s. Humidity will take a brief break.

Don’t look now but we will get back into an unsettled pattern early next week. We’ll have a daily shot at showers and thunderstorms Monday to Wednesday with highs in the low 80s. Mugginess comes up a bit but it won’t be as bad as earlier this week.

The weekend is in view!
