Humidity Has Returned Severe Weather Risk Later Today Week Ahead Outlook

Overnight a warm front pushed through the Northeast and we had showers downpours and one or two thunderstorms in the mix. That area of rain is pushing out to the east and offshore and that has ushered in the return of humidity. A weak cold front and upper trough approach late today and that sets us up for the risk of  thunderstorms late this afternoon and evening.

We will see partly sunny skies develop later this morning and into this afternoon and that will destabilize the atmosphere this afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center has a marginal risk of severe weather mainly inland of the coast. Thunderstorms should be scattered in nature and one or two cells could become severe. We do not expect widespread thunderstorm activity late today so it is rather likely that most of you could avoid them. Temperatures this afternoon will top out in the mid 80s to near 90s degrees though from Southern New England to Long Island highs will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Radars are showing the rains from the warm front moving offshore and then we will spend much of the day quietly until scattered storms form late today and this evening so once the rains are done, if you have outdoor activities planned you should be able to go ahead with them. Areas east of NYC will take longer for rains to exit and weather conditions to improve.

Once the threat for evening thunderstorms goes by the boards we will see leftover clouds warm and humid conditions overnight with lows in the mid 60s to lower 70s. The air behind the weak cold front isn’t cooler at all though the dew points will come down slightly on Monday. Sunshine will take temperatures to the upper 80s and lower 90s Monday afternoon and outside of a pop up shower or thunderstorm, it should be a rain free day for most.

The brief break in the humidity Monday will carry into Tuesday though it does move up a bit. It won’t be extreme however. For the third week in a row, Tuesday will be the hottest day of the week. Sunshine will take highs to the upper 80s and lower 90s on average. Other than a pop up shower or thunderstorm we don’t expect much to happen until later Tuesday evening and night when there is a higher  chance for showers and thunderstorms.

Another weak front moves through leaving us just only a little cooker behind the front as ahead of it. Look for partly sunny skies Wednesday. The humidity will start to rise Wednesday and highs will be in the 80s to near 90. The next cold front arrives Thursday and this one is going to be a stronger one. It will be very warm and humid with highs in the 80s to near 90 and there is a solid chance for late day thunderstorms as the front passes. This could be the one day this week where severe weather could be an issue so we will keep an eye on this.

A strengthening northwest flow from Canada late this week will bring down a very nice dry air mass for Friday and it could carry us right through next weekend. Another dry air mass follows early next week. This keeps heat and humidity at bay as we begin the month of August.
