Long Island Heading For A Stretch of Lower Humidity Weekend Forecast & Long Range Outlook
We managed a decent amount of sunshine today but the big story is the humidity which really nosedived this afternoon. Temperatures settled in the 70s and the dew points dropped into the upper 40s. This made for delightful conditions and a nice break for the brutal humidity of the last two days. Clouds are around this evening but showers and thunderstorms are well to the south in Maryland and Virginia so no rain risks here on Long Island.
Overnight lows will drop into the upper 50s. Humidity levels will remain subdued Friday. Though there will be high clouds around as low pressure passes to our south Friday into Friday night, rain should pass to our south. It may go overcast for awhile on Friday. We will have an onshore wind from the dry cool high to the northeast so highs Friday will be in the cool mid 60s to lower 70s. There could be a brief shower early Saturday morning but we should go partly sunny rather quickly once the trough moves offshore. Highs will again be in the mid 60s to lower 70s.
Sunday should be ok with partly sunny skies. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s away from the coast. It will be in the 60s at the beaches and over the East End. A cold front coming through Sunday night could set off a shower or thunderstorm. We have a couple of cold fronts early next week. One arrives Monday night with a shower or thunderstorm and another late Tuesday. Much of the time though it will be rain free. Humidity will remain on the reasonable side. There is no return to heat and humidity anytime soon.
