Hot Town...Summer In the City
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
I could sing it...but I won't. I'll just discuss the meteorology that inspired that song (and blog title). High pressure is still anchored along the eastern seaboard this morning and this high pressure system will pump heat & humidity into New England yet again. Many cities & towns will achieve *heat wave* status later today (3 consecutive days of 90+ heat) with the low 90s for afternoon temps expected. Like yesterday all this heat & humidity will spark a few late afternoon/evening thunderstorms. Highest chance of the storms will likely be across western & central New England.
Tomorrow is another hot day with temps up close to 90. There will be a higher chance of thunderstorms across New England due to a cool front approaching the region and this front will get stuck in the northeast for the remainder of the week. Not good. It appears another wet pattern will develop due to this front being stuck here in the northeast. While you will see a bunch of raindrops & lightning bolts on our 7-day forecast map, I am not advertising a washout in any of those days but rather clouds, showers, storms and sun all sharing the sky. I am confident that the 95 degree heat will fade and that it will remain very humid for the foreseeable future.
Summer being summer.
