It seems like just last week we concerned ourselves with the climactic affairs of Albany.
At 1053AM, ET, Albany was reporting sunny skies with a temperature of 84 degrees and dewpoints already climbing into the 70s. Last week, a pair of influences, an upper level trough and a tropical wave had brought substantial rain to south Georgia, but now the upper level low was in the southern Rockies and the tropical wave had shifted to the central Gulf.
Today and for the foreseeable future, this means that Albany will be at the mercy of local and diurnal forces. In these circumstances, the NAM model, which has a better resolution but a narrower outlook is often the better resource, and it is indicating that showers and storms will steer clear for the next couple of days. Another wave is forecast to move past the Yucatan into the Eastern Gulf, and late on Friday, there is an outside shot at some rain in that case, but Albany should enjoy a nice, if sultry, end to the week.
