Humidity Drops North To South Weekend And Long Range Outlook

Everything worked out just about perfectly for most of the area regarding the solar eclipse. Clouds and haze added extra color to the celestial spectacle. The weak cold front moved through and there wasn’t much with it but it is now stalling to the south across Delaware and Southern Pennsylvania.

North of the front, dew points are dropping off nicely as dry air filters south. Across Southern Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey and points south you may have to wait another day for the dew points to lower and the humidity to go down. 90s are done for now and we won’t see those for awhile given the pattern going forward. The satellite picture shows patchy clouds in the Northeast and Northern mid Atlantic states. This leaves us with partly sunny skies into the afternoon. The chance for thunderstorms today lies south of the frontal boundary, Southern New Jersey and Southern Pennsylvania southward would be at risk. Most highs today will be in the 80s with upper 70s to lower 70s from NYC and Long Island northward.

The front is going to buckle a bit and low pressure will develop off the Delaware coast on Friday. Rain from this low will fall over Virginia and North Carolina. Some of that rain could briefly reach Southern Pennsylvania and the southern half of New Jersey Friday afternoon. Otherwise look for lots of high clouds Friday and it may even go overcast for a while. Highs Friday will be in the cooler 70s.

The weekend on the whole looks ok. Expect partly sunny skies for Saturday thanks to an upper trough moving southeast from Canada. That could trigger a shower or two well inland but they will be isolated in nature. Highs Saturday will be in the upper 70s to lower 80s with low humidity.

We will also go for partly sunny skies on Sunday. The humidity comes up a bit but it will still be reasonable. Watch for a shower or thunderstorm late in the day as a cold front moves through. Highs again will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Next week the Eastern US will be under the influence of an active trough that extends from Eastern Canada to just off the Mid Atlantic coast. The north northwest flow aloft will bring a series of upper troughs from time to time with clouds and some scattered showers. In between all this skies will be partly sunny during the days. The common thread to the weather next week will be cooler than normal temperatures and reasonable humidity all week. That trough will pull out but another one replaces it so other than the odd warm and humid day (maybe next Saturday) no extended periods of heat and humidity are forecast over the next 10 days.
