Early / Mid Week Discussion : Heat Holds On

Summer arrived with some heat and humidity over the weekend.  Highs in the upper 80s around the region, made it feel every bit like the middle of summer.  As we push through the first half of the week, the heat will hold on, as will the humidity…

A weak front pushes through on Wednesday, and while it won’t translate into cooler air, it should result in lower humidity levels.  Those humidity levels will will stay low until the weekend.

But the big question, is will we get any rainfall?  We are getting more and more dry around the region.

The northeastern HV is now officially in an abnormally dry condition, and that’s due to weeks of minimal rainfall.  When we look to the potential for rain in the coming few days, it’s not too promising…

A scattered shower or thunderstorm between Tuesday evening and Wednesday afternoon… is likely the best and only shot we’ve got to see measurable rainfall.  If this rainfall were to materialize, it would be very welcome.  While it won’t go very far toward helping the drought situation… it certainly won’t hurt either.  But we’ll need more opportunities at rain in the coming week or two in order to offset the deficit.

For now… we hope everyone has a great week!
