A Peek At The Week Ahead
Tuesday, July 06, 2010
My apologies! One day late because of the holiday.
Now that we’ve experienced the first blistering heat of the summer, the natural tendency is to ask when it’s going to end. The answer is, “Soon.” although I see more of a ramping down of the excessive heat and a morphing into a more humid air mass. Here’s what I expect for the rest of this week into the weekend.
Today will be the last day of the searing heat as sea breezes begin to take over during the next couple of days. From tomorrow through the end of the week we may see some 90-degree readings well away from the coast but most highs will be in the 80s. And the humidity will swing upward as the air comes in from more off the ocean. With higher humidity, I do see an increased chance of isolated pop-up showers here and there and more in the way of cloudiness and coastal fog, but for most of us for most of the time it will remain dry.
Looking further into the weekend, I see a trend to even cooler weather with a better chance of scattered showers as the combination of a low pressure center off the mid-Atlantic coast and a cool front move slowly by the region. At this point it’s hard to tell if the chance of showers will affect only Saturday or, perhaps, Sunday as well.
At any rate, the main weather headline is that the heat of the holiday weekend will relent this week but will be lurking close by and likely will return not too distant future.
