Hot Humid Saturday Very Warm Humid Sunday Rain On The Way
The weekend is here, the humidity is back and we have sunshine for much of the day. A weak disturbance is offshore and passing to the east. I don’t see much when it comes to scattered afternoon downpours or thunderstorms today. Highs this afternoon will be in the upper 80s to some lower 90s. South and east facing shorelines in New Jersey, Southern New England, and Long Island will see temperatures settling in the upper 70s and lower 80s once the sea breeze takes hold.
There are no issues tonight other than it will be warm and humid with lows 70 to 75 in warmer urban settings and 60s everywhere else. Sunday we will have partly sunny conditions. There might be some clouds around early as well as late in the day. A warm front will be approaching from the southwest but rain should holdoff until late evening. Also the flow Sunday is going to be more onshore and that will keep highs in the low to mid 80s.
A warm front will be moving through Sunday night and early Monday morning. Rain ahead of that front will move through and should be mostly done by daybreak Monday. That leaves us in clouds for Monday and the chance for scattered showers and maybe a thunderstorm. Highs will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
As far as the rainfall is concerned it seems we have the potential for 3/4 inch to 1.25 inches of rain area wide. We are so dry that we have to start somewhere but when in a drought pattern you tend to underperform so I would lean more to the lower end of that range than the upper end.
After Monday we have a very warm and humid pattern setting up for the entire week. That means Tuesday through Friday should be no worse than partly sunny each day. Highs will be in the mid 80s Tuesday and then trend to the upper 80s to near 90 late week. As for rain, other than an isolated shower or thunderstorm, it is a rain free week.
