Good Wednesday evening!
So, who got soaked today? Yup, me too. But, showers and thunderstorms are racing off to the east this evening and we really avoided the worst of it as once again the biggest, baddest, meanest storms went right around our little corner of the country. Now, sights are set on an approaching cold front.
Overnight, there will be some clear moments, but clouds increase towards daybreak Thursday. A few showers or even a stray thunderstorm are possible as the front itself slides through, but most remain dry. The temp stalls overnight in the 60s, then reaches into the upper 70s to low 80s for most tomorrow afternoon. The St. Lawrence River Valley and Adirondacks escape with a cooler afternoon temp, low to mid 70s, as the front makes its mark there first. South breeze around 10 mph, shifting to out of the west. Despite those morning clouds, breaks of sun are on tap to close out the day.
Thursday night, mostly clear to partly cloudy with a low in the 50s, or upper 40s through cooler terrain. Friday is the epitome of early Fall weather. Afternoon highs limp along into the upper 60s to low 70s with a breezy northwest wind and a mix of valley sun and mountain clouds. A stray sprinkle or two is possible. Saturday and Sunday, two thumbs up. Mostly sunny. Mid to upper 70s.
Have a wonderful evening drying out!
