5:16 am
humid conditions in place. high pressure offshore scooping up all this soupy air. yesterday was so comfortable because humidity was so low. today if you walk outside, it's muggy. there's a cold front to the west. it's way out here. we're getting ahead of it a little bit of rain, showers, maybe even a rumble of thunder. what's the timeline? i'm going to break it down, show you exactly what's going to happen. here's the map at 8:00 this morning. showers lifting to the north. we have a quiet period around lunchtime. a few breaks in but pretty overcast and muggy as well. by the time we get to 4:00, there's a few pop-up showers developing. not necessarily in this exact location, but the threat will be out there as we head towards the afternoon. then the evening, not much going on. a few hit or miss showers. we get past midnight, 1:00 in the morning. see what's happening? we're starting to see more and more of this activity developing towards albany. this will march eastward. tomorrow morning, by 10:00 a.m., we have pretty good showers,
5:17 am
about tomorrow's forecast. that threat is going to carry through the afternoon. so because we have all this opportunity out there, i think most of us will get some rain, but it might be one of those things where you get a lot of rain, your neighbor doesn't get so much rain down the road. it's one of those days. by the way, this hangs on all the way through tomorrow. so off and on scattered showers throughout much of the day. we'll finally clear things off as we head towards tuesday. right now, it's 68 degrees. the dew point is up to around 65 degrees, which isuc than it was yesterday. the humidity is going to stay high today and tomorrow and eventually drop off as we talk about later down the road. speaking of down the road, we've had up and down temperatures so far this month. and we're going to be seeing day to day where the highs are 80 degrees. that's the key to the forecast. rain in the forecast. we're holding out for it. we need every drop of moisture we can get. that seven-day forecast that i was talking about, well, it looks like this. we have the showers in the forecast for today.
5:18 am
