Severe Thunderstorm Watch Northeast NJ, NYC, Hudson Valley,
Long Island, Southern New England
We have a new Severe Thunderstorm Watch posted for areas from Northeastern New Jersey to Southern and Central New England which includes NYC & Boston. The watch is in effect until 10pm. We are seeing steamy conditions this afternoon going into this evening. Dew points are in the upper 60s to around 70 and the atmosphere is very unstable as a cold front approaches.
Activity has been increasing on the regional radar as we follow two separate lines of thunderstorms moving southeastward. One is in Upstate NY and entering the watch zone. The other in West Central Pennsylvania is moving southeast as well and looks to move in to areas in Southern Pennsylvania and Maryland this evening.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Keep an eye to the sky this evening for threatening weather obviously and then once the weather front passes, weather conditions will improve and humidity is set to take a big drop on Wednesday. We will see dew points into the 40s in some places which we haven’t seen in about 2 months.
Not only does the humidity drop but the temperatures will take a nice drop as well making it a delightful day with sunshine. Most areas will see highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s!
Unfortunately it doesn’t last as temperatures Wednesday night will hold in the 60s as some clouds move in. Humidity will be back on Thursday along with higher temperatures as we head into the mid and upper 80s. There will be some scattered showers and thunderstorms around Thursday night into friday thanks to the arrival of the next cold front for Friday which will stall out and then a stronger front will arrive with a good chance for showers on Saturday.
