Another Hot Day Tuesday Thunderstorms Late Wednesday
It is hot and it is humid! Temperatures at 2pm are in the low 90s. Dew points are in the mid to upper 60s which is not off the wall oppressive but it is uncomfortable. Sunshine continues over most of the area as the satellite indicates. You can see very small blobs of clouds indicating some pop up showers and thunderstorms which are developing from the daytime heating.
The thunderstorms and downpours are few and far between on the regional and local radar loops. 99 percent of you won’t see a thing for the remainder of the day into tonight. Then it is a warm and humid night with most lows in the low 70s with upper 60s in the coolest spots.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Tuesday looks like a repeat performance of today though there could be a few more thunderstorms popping up but we expect to see those well inland from Western New Jersey westward and the Hudson Valley mainly west of the Hudson River. Otherwise it is another hot and humid day with sunshine taking highs up into the lower 90s.
Wednesday brings the next cold front and more of a south southwest wind and that should shave off a few degrees off the highs. Look for clouds and some sunshine, a very warm humid day with highs mostly in the 80s to near 90 and a chance for thunderstorms late in the day as the front nears. While a few cells could be on the strong side, right now we are leaning against a severe weather outbreak.
I’m still trying to figure out Thursday and Friday as this front stalls out offshore and a couple of weak waves move along it. None of them appear impressive enough to bring clouds and all day showers but there is the chance we could see some showers around late Thursday and again at some point during Friday with temperatures both days back into the 80s.
You would like to see one of these waves have a little strength to it so it could pull the frontal boundary out offshore shore at least far enough to bring dry conditions for the weekend. Sunday looks like a good day. Saturday might see some lingering clouds and some scattered showers early before weather conditions improve as the day wears on. We will zero in on the weekend as we move along during the week.
