Downpours Eastern Pennsylvania Northern New Jersey Will Dry Up This Evening
SATURDAY LOOKING BETTER MIX SUN & CLOUDS
SHOWERS DOWNPOURS AROUND SUNDAY
We are watching some downpours in Eastern Pennsylvania and Western New Jersey moving eastward. At the same time there is dry air building in Eastern New England. Over the next few hours as the showers move east, dry air from the northeast will move southwestward. The showers and downpours will gradually diminish and by late evening the showers will be gone from the radar. Elsewhere we are sitting in lots of clouds with an onshore wind and temperatures in the 70s. It feels so much better today now that oppressive humidity has taken a break.
Radars are showing some heavy downpours in the mix inching eastward to about NYC. Meanwhile some heavier downpours in parts of Eastern Pennsylvania have triggered some local flooding there.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
It appears we can be a bit more optimistic for Saturday with clouds and some sunshine and temperatures in the 70s. The breeze will remains onshore which holds temperatures down. It doesn’t appear that we will see some showers on Saturday.
Sunday the warm humid air will be coming back and that could trigger off some downpours and thunderstorms especially in the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will be back into the 80s. Then the big ridge in the east builds again and that means the oppressive heat and humidity will be back beginning Monday and lasting through Thursday of next week. Highs will reach the upper 80s to near 90 Monday and into the 90s Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Late next week a cold front will approach as a strong high moves across Southern Canada. There is some question as to how much of that high will push southward but it does offer some relief. Assuming it gets by (if the ridge weakens enough) we will see a freshening northeast wind next Friday but will probably come with clouds and perhaps some rain.
