TONIGHT: Clear & Cooler. Lo 60.
SATURDAY: Sunny & Comfy. Hi 82.
SUNDAY: Increasing Clouds. Hi 82.
Today brought us brilliant blue sky as a fresh air mass from the north moved into the region. The humidity has been pushed to the south for now and it is leading to comfortable summer weather. We can expect temperatures in the upper 50s at their coolest tonight. Dewpoints are in the 40s, which is evidence of how dry this airs. The coldest valleys could drop to the low 50s! Either way Saturday morning will be a very pleasant way to start the weekend.
The weekend is looking stellar with abundant sunshine for Saturday and the comfy weather stays put too. Highs will be in the lower 80s again. More clouds will move in Sunday afternoon though with our next chance for showers coming Sunday night and next Monday as an upper low settles over the Northeast. This low looks to keep the heat at bay for quite a while, so it’s entirely possible we don’t see a 90° day for at least the next week to 10 days! Just how much rain we see is a question for next week. Some model guidance has gotten more aggressive with rain locally, so this may be a very good chance to cut into the dry conditions. We have seen other opportunities not pan out this summer, so we will continue to follow the rain trends. Stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy the cooler and less humid air!
