SIGNS GATHERING NYC HEATWAVE SHORT LIVED
SIGNS GATHERING NYC HEATWAVE SHORT LIVED – Good morning folks! For the past few days, I’ve been talking about the prospect of a back-door cold front looming, cutting short our heatwave. For those who enjoy the hot weather, unfortunately it will arrive a couple of days earlier than expected. For those who are uncomfortable with 90’s, relief is on the way mid-week.
First, lets deal with the meat and potatoes. Today will be a beautiful day overall, however we could see an isolated shower or thunderstorm with low pressure pulling away, colder air aloft, and the sun working the atmosphere to create instability. This chance will be very short-lived, with any chance starting early afternoon, then fizzling out quick as the atmosphere is squeezed dry by late afternoon. Highs will be comfortable today and in the upper 70’s to low 80’s.
Tomorrow will be a similar situation as far as this afternoon instability, but the sun will be around for the majority of the day and we’ll notch up the temps a little higher as our ridge begins to drift over the NYC area. We’ll have a slight chance of isolated thunderstorms, fizzling out quick again, and highs in the low to mid 80’s. Heat and humidity increase on Sunday and all the way through Tuesday; sunny skies and low to mid 90’s Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.
Initially, I thought the back-door cold front would be an issue by late Thursday evening or Friday, but it looks like it’ll swing in on Wednesday, putting a quick end to the hot weather. Don’t expect much precip with the airmass change, just a switch to southeasterly winds and a modified maritime influence. Highs Wednesday and Thursday will be comfortable and seasonably normal, upper 70’s to low 80’s each day.
Also, as stated in previous forecasts, after this “break” occurred, the heat would try to return. This remains possible as heat and humidity will try and build back next weekend, but not as intense. For the weekend of the 17th and into the following week, we’re looking at a summer-like, warm pattern and humid conditions if it’s able to build back in. Stay tuned and we’ll take it as it comes after this mid-August-like weather coming shortly. No severe weather outbreaks are expected over the course of the next several days at this time.
SIGNS GATHERING NYC HEATWAVE SHORT LIVED – Departing low pressure will give us a shot at an isolated thunderstorm this afternoon, then another shot tomorrow as energy crossing the Great Lakes drifts over to our north. Then heat and humidity build in for a few days.
An arm of energy associated with departing glow pressure is heading down the Hudson Valley and could touch off a few isolated storms in the NYC area today.
