A slow moving cold front currently moving through the Adirondacks will pass through the region by mid-day bringing a renewed chance of showers and thunderstorms to the region. Once the front passes, cooler and more comfortable conditions will dominate as high pressure builds in for the upcoming week.

Highs will be in the upper 70s with southwest winds around 10 mph, becoming northwesterly this afternoon. Chance of rain is 20%. Tonight should be partly cloudy with isolated showers until midnight, then mostly clear after midnight. Lows will be in the upper 50s with northwest winds around 10 mph. Chance of rain is 20%.
Sunday should be partly sunny with a chance of showers mainly in the afternoon as a weak upper level trough slides through kicking off some convective shower activity.

Sunday night should be partly cloudy with a 30% chance of lingering showers. Lows will be in the mid 50s with west winds around 10 mph.

About Today’s Photo:
Another shot from the other day’s hummingbird session. This juvenile was one of the several family members zipping about in the bee balm patch by the pond. It’s quite the challenge to get a good shot of one of these critters as they feed as they never stop moving!
