NYC Short Heatwave Begins Tomorrow
Good morning everyone. Yesterday evening we had some pretty heavy showers and storms, including a pretty amazing light show courtesy of Barry’s remnants. Today, we clear out the rest to make room for our “cheap” heatwave, but it’ll be a very hot one nonetheless, so take caution.
We’ll have scattered tropical downpours today as we clear our what’s left of Barry and the weak frontal system that helped bring him into the Northeast. Although it’ll be cloudy, expect muggy and warm conditions, highs in the mid 80’s. For those who live by the coast, especially by the bay, this will be one of those days where the gnats will be ruthless due to a very light easterly flow and high dew points.
Tomorrow we start our heatwave, with sunny skies, humid conditions, and highs in the low to mid 90’s. We continue with the sun, heat, humidity, and dangerous conditions for the elderly and young children; highs 95-100 both Saturday and Sunday.
Please take caution, limit your outdoor activity, stay hydrated, and check on those with health issues, the elderly, children, and your pets.

A series of fronts will pass by in the beginning of the week and the cooling-off process will be piece-meal. Look for the chance of scattered showers and storms during this process. We remain very warm on Monday with highs in the upper 80’s to near 90, then we slowly drop into the mid to upper 80’s Tuesday.
I think we finally break the humidity and clear things out fully by Wednesday as we finally sink back towards the seasonal realm temp-wise.
In the medium range, we are looking more seasonal but locked into this typical NYC summer-type pattern. However, we could get into some more above average heat towards the end of the month/beginning of August.
