FIRST WARNING FORECAST
February 20, 2017 05:11 PM
Skies will stay clear overnight and with a somewhat adequate snow pack and light winds, temperatures will drop off to the teens to 20°.
Tuesday starts with sun but as more mild air heads our way, skies will gradually cloud up through the afternoon and evening. A few rain showers will develop later on and will continue into the overnight hours of Tuesday into Wednesday. Some spots to the north and northeast of the Capital District will see a little sleet/freezing rain as well. Tuesday's highs will top out in the low and middle 40s.
Once any leftover showers depart Wednesday morning, the rest of the day will see some sunshine with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s.
Thursday will be the mildest day of the week with increasing afternoon clouds, a mild breeze and temperatures topping out in the middle and upper 50s.
This mild weather will continue into Friday but a storm will approach from the west, too. This will bring more clouds with scattered showers returning as well. Highs will top out in the upper 40s and low 50s.
Saturday will be the day of change; the day we head back to reality and February.
It'll be mild to start with gusty south winds and scattered showers. Once again temps will top out around 50 but by late afternoon, a cold front will swing through with a steadier rain and colder winds bringing our mild spell to an end.
Sunday will stay in the 30s with a gusty wind and mostly cloudy skies.
Have a great Tuesday-
