This morning felt like it had a touch of Fall in the Capital District. The air was crisp and temps were in the mid 50s or cooler regionally.

We rebounded nicely this afternoon with seasonable highs in the upper 70s. The thermostat will keep climbing this weekend and something tells me 

High pressure will slowly drift east Saturday, allowing for southerly flow and dew points higher than we felt Friday. A warm front will lift north through the region, allowing for some afternoon clouds to develop and highs to reach the low to mid 80s. The threat for wet weather will be non existent for your plans Saturday afternoon.

Sunday will be warmer with highs in the mid 80s, flirting with the upper 80s. Dew points will be a touch higher in the low to mid 60s and there is a very slight chance we could see some wet weather south of Albany. Any showers would be isolated in nature. Outdoor plans still look good overall.

Monday a strong upper level ridge and mid level warming will allow our temps to climb into the upper 80s and even reach 90 as the ridge drifts overhead mid week. Yes we are talking about 90 degree weather on September 1st. If you are a fan of the hazy/hot/humid weather, this summer like pattern appears to be sticking around for the early part of September.

Have a great weekend!
