Meteorologist Matt Mackie’s latest forecast update:

ALBANI, NY (NEWS10) – What a chilly way to start the weekend! The low morning temperatures plunged into the low 20s for most of us Saturday morning. Northern Herkimer County saw lows in the senior teens. The top of Whiteface Mountain recorded a reading of 13°!

High pressure in the northeast and mid-Atlantic was responsible for clear skies and calm winds overnight, two factors that lend themselves to frigid temperatures. Over the course of the day, however, the high will subside and exert less influence. More changeable weather will come from the west, with cumulus clouds later in the day.

With a low of around 40 at night, this system will bring mostly rain – better news for holiday travel plans. After the sunrise on Monday, there will be wet weather, with clouds hanging around and afternoon highs in the mid-40s. The next few days look bright but very cold. Windy conditions on Tuesday make for a particularly frigid feeling.

At least we’re a little more lenient on Thanksgiving itself, with high holiday temperatures in the upper 40’s and dry, partly sunny conditions. Friday looks cloudy with a chance of showers outside.
