HUMIDITY WILL EASE SOMEWHAT SUNDAY MONDAY
MAJOR BREAK IN THE HUMIDITY ARRIVES NEXT THURSDAY
The last month or so it has been a swamp around here with very high humidity. Even though the temperatures have been excessively hot, the humidity has certainly made it feel that way. However looking ahead we finally see some relief coming to get us out of this atmospheric bog we have been in.
The first break will come Sunday and Monday as high pressure builds in the Canadian Maritime Provinces and creates an onshore flow over us. With temperatures in the 70s and dew points in the upper 50s and lower 60s will certainly feel better as long as it doesn’t rain. That is a question for Sunday with the frontal boundary to our south and a wave developing on the front. There could be some patchy rain around especially along coastal areas. Dry air to the north may try and push southward and could have some success on Monday with a bit of luck.
Late Tuesday the humidity rages again into Wednesday until another cold front with showers and thunderstorms moves through. The real push of dry air will begin to arrive late Wednesday once a cold front moves offshore. The GFS model is bringing down a nice dry cool Canadian air mass for the end of next week. Models have been struggling back and forth on the next major trough in the Eastern US and how much amplitude it will have. Today’s models runs went hog wild with the dry push of air taking a cold front south deep in the the Gulf States.
We view this with a bit of skepticism and would like to see other models follow along. The European model has been on this page for awhile and then it flipped a bit last night. We are waiting for the new model run to see if it goes along with the GFS model. Even if it is a bit overdone we should still see a break from the oppressive tropical humidity either way.
