Approaching 90 degrees later this week


Turning more humid by the weekend with spotty storm chances...

THIS EVENING: Clear & Mild. Temperatures Falling Into The Upper 60s. Winds: Light.

OVERNIGHT: Clear & Calm. Lo 56. Winds: Calm.

WEDNESDAY: Sunny, Summer-Like! Hi 86. Winds: Light.

Highs today made it into the low 80s for most of us! With dry air, clear skies, and calm winds in place, temperatures will again drop quickly tonight. We’ll be pleasant this evening before dropping into the mid-50s overnight. A touch cool for Wednesday morning, but then things quickly heat up by the afternoon.

An unseasonably strong ridge of high pressure will build over the northeast United States this week, allowing for summer-like warmth to continue. For Wednesday, expect highs in the mid to upper 80s with similar temperatures for Thursday. Both days will feature abundant sunshine but still very low humidity. By this weekend, we start to tap into more of a west/southwest wind, allowing more moisture to stream northward. As weak disturbances in the northwest flow aloft graze past us, this could be enough to generate a storm or two for Saturday, and then again late-Sunday. Most of the weekend still looks dry, but know there is the chance for a pop-up storm as humidity starts to get a bit more noticeable.

A front will slide through by Monday. That will cool us down a couple degrees but we’ll still be well warmer than normal. By the middle of next week, a cold front will move through the Great Lakes, which should bring us an increase in shower or storm chances, albeit it’s still too early to say when exactly.
