Hot Humid Tuesday Thunderstorms Fire Up Inland Late Today
Another hot and humid day is underway across the Northeast and MIddle Atlantic states. We are starting with a rather solid launching pad as we bottomed in the upper 60s and lower 70s. The satellite view doesn’t show much in the way of cloud cover and any low clouds are burning off quickly. So it will be a day to look for cool relief with sunshine and highs reaching the upper 80s and lower 90s. By the way you may notice on the far right what looks like a circulation and indeed we have a subtropical depression that formed yesterday offshore and is out further east this morning. It is not expected to become a subtropical storm but just weaken as it moves northeast. It is not having any real impact on our weather.
Nothing much is around on the regional radar but late today into tonight we will see thunderstorms likely firing up in Pennsylvania where the Storm Prediction Center is showing a marginal risk of severe weather. These storms will likely weaken as they move east so while we will allow for the possibility of an isolated shower or thunderstorm from New Jersey to New England the chances will be low. Otherwise it is another warm and humid night with lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
Let’s do it again on Wednesday with very warm to hot conditions along with high humidity, some sunshine and the chance for a pop up thunderstorm. A weak cold front stalls out and basically falls apart on top of us. This doesn’t allow for much change in weather conditions for the rest of the week. Thursday will be very warm and humid as well with the chance for a late day shower or thunderstorm. Highs will be in the mid 80s to near 90 degrees both days.
We can probably just roll this weather along Friday and right through the weekend with some sunshine each day. There might be a pop up shower or thunderstorm Friday. I’m covering just in case. Then perhaps a better chance for thunderstorms Saturday and Sunday across Northern Pennsylvania, upstate NY and New England with lower chances as you head south. It will be a very warm to hot and humid stretch from Friday through Sunday with highs in the mid 80s to near or just over 90 each day.
