A rather persistent weather pattern will continue right through midweek as an area of high pressure in an omega block remains parked over the region with dry and warm conditions under partly to mostly sunny skies. A large area of low pressure off the New England coast will remain offshore and may occasionally spread some high clouds into eastern parts of the region.
Here is the complete forecast for Albany and the Capital Region of upstate New York:
TODAY – High pressure will remain in control for another day with sunny skies across most of the region, except for a few occasional clouds across western New England, where they are closer to the ocean storm. High temperatures will be rather mild into the lower 70’s with a north wind at 10 to 15 mph.
WEDNESDAY – As the large area of low pressure slowly retrogrades toward and near the New England coast, areas from the Hudson River on east will see a mixture of sun and clouds while western areas remain mostly sunny, but all areas will remain dry as high pressure maintains a firm grip on the region. High temperatures will once again warm into the lower 70’s with a north wind at 5 to 10 mph.
THURSDAY – High pressure will remain in control for one final day with mostly sunny skies across the entire region and high temperatures well into the lower 70’s, and even a few mid 70’s possible across southern areas. The weather will remain dry and mild into Thursday night, before things become rather uncertain to end the week.
OUTLOOK – The extended forecast is still up in the air as the computer forecast models are not yet coming into an agreement on the evolution of a cut-off upper level system slowly moving out of the middle of the country. As of right now, clouds will increase early Friday with a chance of showers possible by late in the day and into the overnight as the storm approaches. It then looks rather unsettled into the weekend as several backdoor cold fronts move through, with high temperatures remaining mild in the upper 60’s. High pressure will then attempt to build into the region by Monday afternoon, pushing the cut-off low and any lingering moisture south of the region.
