Little if Any Rain Next 5 Days Seasonal Temperatures Reasonable Humidity
Our rather uneventful almost rain free week moves into its second day. We have an upper trough over the Eastern US and that is creating a cold unstable atmosphere to an extent but not enough to produce anything more than some scattered showers. The best chance for those will be well inland and for most of you it is another rain free day from Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England. Highs today will reach 80 to 85 inland under partly sunny skies while along the coast highs will be in the mid to upper 70s.
We are going to miss out on some rain later tonight into Wednesday. Low pressure develops off the Mid Atlantic coast but due to the broad nature of the upper trough it will move east before it turns north. It completely misses Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England however it should bring some rain to Southeastern New England where we have an extreme drought underway.
It isn’t much but it is something at least with rainfall amounts under 1/2 inch and even under a quarter of an inch for Southeast New England. Notice everywhere to the west either shows no measurable precipitation or just a few hundreths. We will have some clouds around tonight with lows in the 60s. Wednesday clouds will give way to partly sunny skies. Eastern Conneciticut and Eastern Long Island will see more clouds and perhaps be in the edge of some rain. Otherwise it will be a decent day.
The developing low will help to re-enforce the low dew points so we will remain comfortable through the end of the week and likely into the weekend. Wednesday highs under partly sunny skies will reach upper 70s and lower 80s. Thursday and Friday will be nice and sunny with highs in the low to mid 80s both days. The weekend looks okay with cloudy to partly sunny skies for both Saturday and Sunday. Highs will be in the low to middle 80s, nights will be in the 60s with 50s in cool spots and humidity should remain reasonable through Sunday.
