|Thunderstorms and tornadoes continue to make news this week. The damage above is from Mariaville, New York, near Albany. (timesunion.com)|
Tonight will be warm and humid with overnight lows in the 20's. Saturday will be very humid with more clouds than sun, a touch cooler around 28C and showers and thunderstorms developing after 3pm. Some of the storms could be rather strong with heavy rain. On Sunday a cold front will move across the St. Lawrence Valley with drier air arriving but not before a decent round of thunderstorms.
Speaking of storms, the National Weather Service confirmed that two tornadoes occurred near Albany, New York late Wednesday. The storms were classified as an EF 1 and an EF2 that carved a 17 mile long path of damage near Florida, New York. Significant damage to homes and power lines was reported along with numerous downed trees from the Albany Capital District east to the Massachusetts border.
I will be taking the blog on the road for a few days, so watch for entries from the southern New England coast.
