Low pressure will track south of the region today into tonight, bringing a widespread soaking rainfall for areas south and east of Albany, and lighter rain to the north. An upper level disturbance may bring another round of showers and perhaps a thunderstorm on Friday, before dry and milder weather returns into the upcoming weekend.
- The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch from Thursday morning through Saturday morning for the Capital Region on southward. Forecast rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches may result in flooding. Local streams and rivers which are already elevated may overflow their banks. Excessive runoff will result due to already saturated grounds. Stay tuned to the latest forecast and be alert for possible warnings. Those living in flood prone areas should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
