A sharp cold front will approach the region bringing showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and into the evening. Winds will be gusty with brief heavy downpours possible. The best chance for stronger storms looks to occur by mid afternoon into the early evening, with a SLIGHT risk for severe weather upgraded for the Capital Region and areas south. Highs will be in the 70s ahead of the front with mostly cloudy skies and a few scattered showers earlier this morning.
Much cooler air will move in behind the front on Sunday. It will be mostly cloudy and breezy, with scattered showers especially in the Adirondacks and north and west of Albany. Highs will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
It will stay cool and breezy with a few showers to start off next week, with a bit of a warming trend and more sunshine by midweek.
Have a great weekend!
