NYC Hot Humid Thursday Slow Relief Coming
Good morning everyone. NYC continues to bake in heat and humidity that is fairly typical as we get closer to Labor Day Weekend. However, relief is on the way, and we should see a very nice weekend coming up after a slow transition.
Look for hot and humid conditions to continue today, with another round of scattered showers and storms possible. Highs today in the upper 80’s to low 90’s.
Overnight, we’ll have another chance of showers and storms, but it takes time to get everything out of here in terms of the airmass itself. Expect more scattered showers and storms tomorrow morning, before we finally begin the cooling off/dehumidifying process.
Expect partial clearing by mid to late afternoon tomorrow, with highs in the low to mid 80’s.
Your weekend forecast continues to hold very strong, with sunny skies, low humidity, and pleasant temps; with highs in the upper 70’s to near 80 both Saturday and Sunday.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Monday will be an extension of the weekend weather-wise, but clouds will begin to creep is as a warmer and more humid airmass tries to push back in for mid-week.
Look for upper 70’s to near 80 again for Monday, then possibly low to mid 80’s again by Wednesday.
As we pivot towards September, our warmer and more humid weather will become more front-related than anything else. We’ll begin the process of getting into more of a 3:3 ratio of comfortable days vs warmer and humid days during this pattern modification.
We’ll be watching closely though as heat continues to try and build well into the Rockies and western parts of the Midwest. Given the right conditions, that air could easily transfer back and give us another extended warm and humid period.
