This summer, constant heat waves have pounded the northeast US region with many records being broke, and almost no relief has been provided to this point in time. So how much more suffering will we have to endure this summer? That is a good question being asked by many people and the answer will have you letting go a sigh of relief. The heat is likely over for this month and possibly next month. a long lasting pattern change is setting up a trough in the northern US and a southern ridge, meaning the northern United States will likely be cooler than normal and the southern US will be above average in terms of temperatures.
But just how far below average, about 3 to as much as 5 degrees down from where we should be. Highs will be held down to only the 70's, and possibly a few 80's in the south most areas of the region. When we take a long at the long range model forecasts, it looks as though the 90's are a thing of the past. So these are daytime highs, anywhere from the upper 70's in Southern New England to the southern Northeast States of New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, the lowlands of Pennsylvania, Virginia, the lowlands of West Virginia, as well as Ohio and the southern lowlands of New York. After that, low to middle 70's across the mounatain and highland areas around the northeast.
Continuing on, those forecasts are based on the daytime temperatures. At night the temperatures could get as low as the upper 30's in the Adirondacks, and then the upper 40's to lower 50's in many highland/ mountain locations above 2000 feet. After that, middle through upper 50's in area's below 2000 feet meaning the majority of the coastal and piedmont regions. Below is a map showing the forecast high temperatures over the next 10 days. This is a general summary of the temperatures over the next 10 days: a cool down with temperatures being held in the 70's region-wide.
