Wow! Talk about a weather turn around. Yesterday in Albany, NY the temps struggled to get above 20 degrees. But, folks watching WTEN's news break during Fox's NFL Football must have really been happy when the weather anchor said it would be getting up to 70 degrees Today.
WTEN was ford to admit that the balmy forecast was a mistake and they were trying to figure out what went wrong.
They posted this on their Facebook page:
BIG CLARIFICATION: Hi everybody, while I was beginning the 6pm show on NEWS10 ABC -- I was informed that an incorrect news update aired during the NFL on Fox. Just want to clarify that it will NOT be 70 degrees in Albany tomorrow. All of the reports in that update were from several weeks ago, and are not current. I am so very sorry this happened -- and we, as a team, are working to find out what went wrong.
In the meantime, here are the REAL temperatures for Albany:
18 degrees by 7 p.m. (with some scattered snow flurries across the area)
15 degrees by midnight
12 degrees by daybreak Monday.
