Friday Discussion : Weekend Starts Comfortable, Ends Hot

A beautiful stretch of weather will continue, and carry us into the start of the weekend.

An area of disturbance will pass by to our east on Friday, which will lead to some clouds to start our day.  Those clouds should mix with increasing sunshine during the afternoon.  A NW flow will keep temperatures a touch below average for this time of year… in the mid 70s.  Combined with the low humidity… it should make for a very comfortable and enjoyable start to the weekend.

Heat and Humidity Builds Late Weekend

Saturday looks a few degrees warmer, with partly to mostly sunny skies.  Afternoon highs on Saturday should be in the low 80s.  But the flow then shifts out of the SW… and our weekend weather begins to change.

Sunday will bring us a mix of sunshine and clouds, but increased levels of heat.  Temps on Sunday should climb into the mid and upper 80s across the Hudson Valley.  In addition, increasing dew points will be felt from west to east… so as the afternoon progresses, the more uncomfortable it will feel.

By Monday… the heat and humidity peaks across the Hudson Valley…

Temperatures around the region will surge into the low and mid 90s.  Most notably, dew points will climb near or above the 70° mark.  That will make for some very uncomfortable… heat index values between 100° and 105°.  If you have outdoor plans for Monday… or plans that don’t involve air conditioning, make sure you begin to factor that in to your plans.  It’s likely going to be the hottest day of 2018 so far, so be sure to be ready for that.

We’ll track the approaching heat through the weekend… but after a beautiful start to the weekend, we’ll see heat and humidity on the rise for Father’s Day on Sunday, and especially on Monday.  Have a great Friday!
