I must apologize that my posts have not been so faithful ... I will try to do better in the future. One must realize forecasting is not my occupation. It is my hobby. Now, on to the weather.
After today's storms and heavy rain (not everyone will get them. Areas well east of here, will get hammered esp. up the I-95 corridor. Not that storms follow the interstate, but a good directional indicator for our mental reference. There will likely be some very serious flash flooding in local areas of far Eastern PA, NJ, NYC/LI and into Southern CT. Not a good set up at all. We should pray for everyone's safety, as we certainly know what flooding is like.
For us one more humid then cooler and much, much drier. A refreshing airmass will come in tonight and Wednesday with a nice westerly breeze. It will FEEL like fall, relatively speaking that it is. Highs in the 70s Wed, Thu and Near 80 Fri is what I call perfect. Lows at night will be in the 50s, even near 50 (some upper 40s possible if winds die down Wed night/Thurs morn). Time to open the windows!
Now for the bad news. Our run of really dry, beautiful weekends will end this weekend. As the big cool high moves off the coast, a warmer, moist flow will develop out of the south. At the same time, a very moist, heavy rain area will be trying to head NE from TX. This means toward us.I would not expect heavy rain, just showers and storms. It will not rain all the time. So no washouts, but it won't be high and dry either. Temps will be near 80 with increasing humidity, ad night time lows will be in the mid to upper 60s.
Again, the summer will end up warm, mainly because of our warm nights (due to high humidity). Think about it: how many 90 degree days have we had? I can count them on one hand so far. So it has not been overly hot. Yet, the nights have been warm to very warm.
Enjoy the next couple of days after today. Weed that garden for it'll be easy pulling, and then relax with an iced tea and allow the cool evening air to refresh you (Hint: couple of hot days may be coming middle of next week).
