Summer Weekend Sunshine No Issues Low Humidity Perfect Weather
It is about as crisp and clean a day as you get and we are going to have two of them. The satellite picture this morning shows nothing but clear skies across much of the Northeast into the Northern Middle Atlantic states. We have low pressure east of Nova Scotia just sitting out there with a ridge of high pressure building into the East. This is keeping any shower and thunderstorm activity out to the west and south from moving in. The only minor complication today is an upper air disturbance will be moving southward on the west side of the low offshore. This might bring a few afternoon clouds and a spot shower or two over Eastern Connecticut & Eastern Long Island. It is no issue to anyone else. Temperatures today will reach the upper 70s and lower 80s.
For now the radars are quiet and except for that one minor issue to the east later today there are no showers or thunderstorms to worry about through Monday. Skies will be nice and clear tonight with most lows in the 50s to lower 60s. Sunday will be exceptional with lots of sunshine with highs reaching up into the 80s even along the coast. You could’t ask for a better day.
I think we are going to hold on to 1 more nice day on Monday with lots of sunshine to start and maybe some high clouds arriving during the afternoon. A warm front marking the leading edge of a warmer and more humid air mass and weather pattern will be moving east. The transition to warm and humid conditions will come with only a minor inconvenience and that would be in the form of a shower or thunderstorm scattered around late Monday night or early Tuesday morning. Otherwise Monday and much of Monday night should be fine with highs in the 80s.
Next week we will spend it inside a very warm and humid weather regime through other than scattered showers and thunderstorm running around from time to time I don’t see any widespread rain issues which will leave much of the time dry (rain free). While I do see it getting warm I do not see it getting overly hot. One positive about all the rain is that the soil moisture content is rather high and this actually can impact daytime highs by keeping them lower by a a degree or two (or maybe even three). Highs each day will be in the mid 80s to near 90 with temperatures slightly cooler at the shore. Summer is here!
