Rainy next few days

Much needed rain arrives Monday and continues for the next few days as an active weather pattern sets up.

Posted: Oct 18, 2020 11:07 PM

An active weather pattern brings rain to the area for the next
few days. This rain is definitely needed. A large portion of the
region is under a moderate drought, with some areas in the North
Country under a severe drought. This includes Prospect, West
Turin, Old Forge, Boonville and Lowville.

Here's the set up. Rain arrives late tonight and into Monday as a cold
front approaches the region. This front stalls directly over our area
continuing the chance for rain throughout the day. The rain will be
light but steady with cloudy skies. This will keep our temperatures
steady as well. Starting near 50 degrees in the morning with highs
only in the upper 50s by the afternoon.

This front remains over the area for the first half of Tuesday with
steady rain. The rain ends the second half of the day as this cold
front finally pushes through the region. It will bring cool air behind
it with highs only reaching the upper 50s again during the afternoon.

Rain once again returns on Wednesday. A low pressure system brings a
warm front through the area in the morning. A large warm air mass
moves in. Highs will reach the mid 70s. This will fire up a few
thunderstorms during the middle of the day. Then a cold front moves
through in the evening with drier air behind it.

Overall, by the end of Wednesday there will be plenty of rainfall for
the areas that need it, especially the North Country. Around 1.5" of
total rainfall is expected for the North Country, 1.0" for the Mohawk
Valley, and 0.5" for the Southern Valleys.
