Storm Tracker Forecast: Potentially Record-Breaking Heat on the Way

Here’s Your Latest Storm Tracker Forecast from NEWS10’s  Jean Louise Bernhoft

A very large ridge is building over the eastern half of the United States, bringing summer-like heat and humidity for the next few days. Expect dry, clear, and hot conditions through the first half of the week, as high pressure sits across the viewing area.

Today, Albany’s high temperature hit 90° breaking the previous record high of 87 in Albany set back in 1961.  

Dewpoints in the upper 60s will make the air feel very thick, and especially through the evening hours, will be uncomfortable.

 

Overnight tonight, lows will stay above average in the upper 50s and low 60s as skies remain mostly clear.

The heat and humidity sticks around Monday, with temperatures in the upper 80s and mostly clear skies. Winds remain light, with the chance of some early morning fog.

We stay dry until Wednesday, when the ridge of high pressure pushes out of the area, being replaced by the approaching cold front. By the end of the week you can break out the sweaters, we will return to more comfortable and fall-like conditions. Although, Highs in the 60s may be a shock to the system after a week of 80°+ weather.
