Sunshine Sunday Another Front Monday Great Weather Tuesday Through Thursday
We have completed the transition from the onshore flow of the last couple of days to one that is warmer and with a land based wind. It is not overly uncomfortable today though the dew points are higher. We are going to enjoy some sunshine as the satellite picture shows clouds have pushed to the south and east though they are lingering at least for now over Southern New Jersey and into Delaware and Maryland. We don’t expect any issues today with partly to mostly sunny skies for most and highs reaching the upper 70s and lower 80s.
Regional and local radars show showers are well to the south and east and sliding away offshore. There isn’t much happening upstream today to the northwest and we expect it to be a rain free day across the Northeast and Northern Mid Atlantic states.

Tonight we see no issues in what will be a warm humid night with most lows in the 60s to near 70 in some of the usually warmer urban locations. Monday brings partly sunny skies but it also brings another cold front dropping down from the northwest as high pressure begins to build in Eastern Canada and New England.
Temperatures ahead of the front Monday will reach the low or even some middle 80s depending on how much cloud cover. The front is rather unimpressive though there could be a shower or thunderstorm in the afternoon as the front passes. Then the high to the north will build and it will be re-enforced during the week thanks to a strong upper trough off the East Coast.
This strong upper flow also will be pulling Humberto to the east and bringing it very close to Bermuda late Wednesday or Thursday. We are protected with the high to the north holding firm. Tuesday look for sunshine and a few clouds with highs in the 70s. Wednesday into Thursday will be rather cool with sunshine and a northeast wind. Highs will have a tough time getting out of the 60s on one or both of those days. Then the high drops to our south later Thursday and Friday setting us up for dry warmer weather through next weekend. It is conceivable that we may not see a drop of rain here for the next 7 or 8 days with the exception of the shower or thunderstorm risk tomorrow afternoon. This will be a nice way to finish the last week of summer.
