Capital Region Forecast: Rain chances increase today, then extend well into midweek

A somewhat subjective assessment of today’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10.

4/10: Pay for an almost perfect start to the weekend with cloud and rain chances increasing as the day goes on. Not suitable for outdoor activities in the afternoon and evening, but we need the rain.

  • today: A few showers in the morning, and scattered showers possible in the evening. Highs: upper 60s to upper 70s.
  • Tonight: Scattered rain possible in the evening? Lows: High 50s to low 60s.
  • tomorrow: Shower early? Partly sunny in the afternoon. Highs: upper 70s.

A low pressure area brings cloud, moisture and rain chances today into this evening, with the best chance of more rain arriving this afternoon. It’s our only chance for much-needed rain in the next few days as high pressure builds starting tomorrow, providing plenty of sunshine and monsoon temperatures and low humidity through most of the week.
