Heat Out. Humidity Still In.
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
Our heat wave is done. Quite an impressive stretch as it was our longest--5 days--since August of 2010. There may be a couple places that reach 90 again but for most cities & towns, those temps will reach the upper 80s.
As for the humidity wave....that's still going strong. In fact, much of this week will still offer oppressive levels of humidity and that humidity combining with a weakening cool front will lead to a daily round of scattered showers & t-storms. If this is your vacation week it will be good with only 1 day, Thursday, possibly earning that dubious distinction of "washout". The other days will just see that classic moniker of "scattered PM storms"--where much of the day is dry as are many towns but a few storms will pop up through the afternoon heat.
This will be the case for today, tomorrow and Wednesday. As for Thursday--that possible washout day--scattered showers & storms may arrive as early as 8am and linger throughout the day. These storms will serve a good purpose though---to sweep the humidity out to sea by late Thursday night & Friday!
Enjoy the week.
