06/15/22: Another warm day today

Latest forecast update from Meteorologist Rob Lindenmuth:

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Another warm day is expected today, with just a few more clouds through the afternoon. Temperatures will rise rapidly after sunrise and climb into the 80s, but humidity will remain low for another day.

As the day progresses, there may be a few more clouds bubbling up, especially in the higher ground. While I don’t expect a lot of showers, we can’t totally rule out an isolated shower or two, especially in those higher ground areas. But temperatures will be warm with slightly above seasonal values, many in the low 80s, upper 70s outside of the valley areas.

Overnight tonight as a warm front moves through the clouds it will increase and winds will pick up from the south so temperatures are likely to stay in the mid to upper 60s. Rain chances will also increase overnight, especially Thursday morning. Expect scattered showers and maybe a thunder or two to accompany them.

Once that warm front passes, temperatures will return to warm with highs in the 80s and 80s, but we will also feel a little more humidity. This may lead to heavy thunderstorms Thursday afternoon. Right now, the threat of severe weather appears to remain to our west, but depending on the overall configuration, we’ll have to keep an eye out to see if these storms can hold together as they move east.

Futurecast has the cold front approaching Thursday night with a line of thunderstorms developing ahead through central New York. Again this forecast can change as it all depends on the timing, if it’s a bit sooner we may see a stronger storm or two, if it continues at its current speed it will only rain with a thunder or two on Thursday night . We will keep you informed.

Some rain left over for Friday with partly sunny skies, turning breezy as well. Winds continue through the weekend as cooler air enters the Capital Region. Temperatures for Father’s Day weekend are staying in the 60s to 70s on Saturday and should hit the 70s on Sunday with plenty of sunshine! Have a nice day! -Steal
