Hot Slightly Less Humid Today Brutal Heat Thursday
Chance Thunderstorms Friday
Virtually cloudless skies cover the Northeast and Middle Atlantic states today. We did get a little bit of dew point relief from yesterday’s weather front which is making it more comfortable than yesterday. However this is a one day break from the high humidity as it will be back on Thursday. As for temperatures we look for highs to reach upper 80s to lower 90s. Sunshine should last all day long and we have no risks for showers or thunderstorms popping up.
Humidity levels will be up tonight and it will be warm and humid overnight with lows in the upper 60s to middle 70s. Thursday will be the hottest day of the week and temperatures are going to soar to 95 to near 100 degrees for highs. There will be a weather front approaching but it is a long way off to the west.
Some scattered thunderstorms could develop well inland in Pennsylvania and in Upstate NY but they should die off as they head east. That fromt will be close enough Friday which will be another hot and humid day, though temperatures will be lower Friday vs Thursday. Highs will reach the lower 90s.
There is the chance for scattered thunderstorms late in the day into Friday night but for now it doesn’t seem we are at risk for severe weather. At worst perhaps there could be some isolated stronger storms in the mix. This front will move offshore and bascially fall apart Friday night and Saturday. There won’t be much cooling if any at all this weekend. There won’t be any humidity relief either.
Saturday will be very warm to hot and humid with some sunshine and the chance for a scattered shower or thunderstorm. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s. Sunday we will turn hot again with sunshine. Highs will reach 90 to 95, humidity will be high, and there is the chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. I would say that for the vast majority of people, you won’t see much if anything at all regarding thunderstorms this weekend.
