Here’s Your Latest Storm Tracker Forecast from NEWS10 Meteorologists Steve Caporizzo & Nick Johnston
The SURGE of warm weather continues… and today could be the warmest of the week, with high temperatures expected to tie or beat many records. We expect temps in the Hudson Valley to reach 60°-65°. The Current Record High for Albany is 62° set in 1984, which will likely be broken. A warm South wind will be breezy at times, at 10-20 mph, gusting to 25+ mph. A weak front comes through this evening with the chance of a brief shower in a few spots.
This front returns as a warm front on Friday with another round of scattered showers possible. Friday will be less breezy, and while not quite as warm as Thursday – highs will still be in the upper 50s to near 60°.
Saturday is a day to watch. A Strong cold front marching across New York State, is expected to produce scattered showers… possibly with embedded thunderstorms. Out ahead of this front, STRONG SSW winds will develop, that may gust to 45 mph in the Hudson Valley. Temps once again look to reach the low 60s. In the mid to late afternoon, a line of showers and a few thunderstorms will arrive, with some locally heavy rains. After all the snow-melt this week, rivers will already be riding high… We will have to watch for river flooding, with ice jams also possible. A flood watch has been issued for Northern NY, and North-Central VT for Friday evening through Sunday evening;
Sunday will stay windy, but turn Much cooler (more normal for late February). Next week looks mild, but not as warm as this week, with highs mostly in the 40s.
Have a Great Day!
