Warmer More Humid Night Hot Humid Wednesday
Wash Rinse Repeat Late Week Weekend
We are seeing a weak warm front edging northward this evening thinning out the clouds and setting us up for a warm humid night. The satellite is showing large breaks in the cloud cover that have developed now that the thicker cloud cover has moved up into New England. Nothing is on the radar tonight. Lows will be in the mid to upper 60s by Wednesday morning with cool spots closer to 60. This sets the table for Wednesday to be a very warm to hot day with inland highs close to 90 and just about everyone else in the mid to upper 80s.
A cold front will be approaching Wednesday night and this might trigger off a shower or thunderstorm but i think the risk is greater after sunset than before as the front is moving slowly eastward and won’t move offshore until sometime Thursday morning.
The front drops southward during Thursday which means we may start the day with clouds and a lingering shower and then see some sunshine developing in the afternoon Thursday. High pressure will be building southward from Eastern Canada and New England so winds will turn to the north and then northeast later in the day and at night. North and east of NYC highs will be in the upper 70s to near 80 and low to mid 80s Central and South Jersey southward.
Back to the onshore flow on Friday with a big high to the northeast. Friday is tricky as we might see dry air from New England drain southward which would make for a sunnier day verses a day with lots of clouds. Let’s split the difference for now with mostly sunny skies in Southern New England, the Hudson Valley and Long Island and clouds mixed with some sun from NJ southward. Temperatures will be in the 70s.
The weekend we will be back to a southwest flow, warmer and more humid conditions and the chance for an odd shower or thunderstorm Saturday evening. Otherwise the weekend looks to be mostly a rain free affair.
