Can you believe that we are just about at the halfway point of the year already? Yup, before you know it, we’ll be talking about football, then hockey, and snowstorms, and….well, we’ll stop there before we upset everyone.
Well, we are supposedly in the middle of summer now, but the weather pattern is definitely not a typical summertime pattern. An upper-level trough of low pressure will move into the Northeast for the start of the week. That means that we’ll start off each day with sunshine, but clouds will pop up and likely some showers or thunderstorms each afternoon. High pressure starts to build in on Wednesday with drier and milder conditions. By Thursday, a warm front will cross the region, with more showers and thunderstorms expected. Friday will finally be a typical summer day, with warm and humid conditions, but also the chance for more showers and thunderstorms. Next weekend, things get tricky again. A back door cold front will try to drop down from the north and will likely stall out somewhere in our vicinity. Exactly where it stalls will have a huge impact on the temperatures around here. South and west of the front, it will remain humid, with temperatures well into the 80s or even the 90s. North and east of the front, temperatures may stay in the 60s and lower 70s, especially near the coastline. Of course, since, it’s the start of the long holiday weekend, these details are fairly important. Hopefully, we’ll have more clarity as we head through the week.
