After some morning low clouds over portions of the Mohawk and Hudson Valley’s burn off this morning a bright sunny day is expected under the influence of high pressure. Fair and seasonable conditions are expected though Thursday before a weak backdoor cold front slides southward from the Canadian border Thursday evening. Showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible on Thursday night as this frontal system moves through.
Fair weather, under Canadian high pressure, returns to the region to close out the work week. A storm takes shape over the southern New England coast Friday night, and should remain far enough out to sea to keep our region in the clear through the start of the weekend.
A return to unsettled conditions with scattered showers and thunderstorms, looks probable to end the weekend and close out the month of June.
