Long Island Sees Humidity Temperatures Rising Next 2 Days
It was a well deserved break today with lower humidity though we did have some cloud issues. Some light showers were nearby on the radars earlier but they are mostly gone now. We remain on the edge of clouds tonight though the cloud line should sink southward. Only a handful of miles will bring partial cleaing of skies. Lows by morning will be in the 60s to near 70. The frontal boundary to the south of us will shift a little further south Wednesday so there should be no worse than partly sunny skies. Temperatures will reach the low to mid 80s but it will be cooler along the shore.
We will gradually make the transtion to a very warm to hot and humid air mass. Humidity levels will actually start rising later Wednesday and then reach their peak Thursday, which will be the one hot day. Highs will reach 85 to near 90 degrees inland. The wind off the ocean will be enough to keep the beaches in the 70s. We will throw in the chance for a scattered shower or thunderstorm late in the day.
Friday we will see a cold front arrive and that will put an end to the 90s. In fact there will be more clouds around Friday and that will be enough to keep highs in the low to middle 80s. The humidity will still be high and there could be some showers and thunderstorms when the front goes by. Afterwards we will see the arrival of a dry cooler air mass for Saturday and Sunday. Both days we will see highs in the low to mid 80s with sunshine and low humidity. It will be a nice way to finish off the month of July.
