Hot Humid Monday Thunderstorms Tuesday
Dry Weather Midweek
This evening we are seeing very little in the way of thunderstorm activity. There was a narrow band of thunderstorms showing up in the Lower Hudson Valley west of the Hudson River and that is about it tonight as far as storms are concerned. We have transitioned over into a humid air mass and Monday will be the one hot humid day this week before the next cold front arrives late Tuesday.
MONDAY FORECAST HIGH TEMPERATURES
Look for temperatures near or just over 90 degrees in most places Monday except for right near the shore where cooler 80s should prevail. We will see some sunshine Monday with high humidity and we will throw in the chance for a late day thunderstorm though they should be scattered in nature. It took time for clouds to clear out during Sunday but they finally have area wide. Downpours in South Jersey have long disappeared so it will be a warm humid night ahead with lows in the upper 60s to mid 70s.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Tuesday brings the next cold front and a good chance for downpours and thunderstorms with highs mostly in the 80s. Rainfall amounts of an inch to an inch and a half will be thunderstorm driven so we know there will be variability here with some places getting more and some less. We also know lately that these fronts have not lived up to expectations when it comes to being efficient rain producers so no guarantees here on the forecast amounts.
RAINFALL FORECAST THROUGH EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING
Once the front passes a couple of warm but dry days are forecast for Wednesday and Thursday with highs into the 80s and lower humidity. After that it looks like we could be dealing with a slow moving frontal system and increasing chances for thunderstorms beginning Friday and into next weekend with higher humidity and temperatures in the 80s. We will have more on the outlook for next weekend on Monday.
