Over the past several weeks, us here in the Northeast have been seeing either average or slightly below average temperatures. It has not really been that hot, and it looks like the stretch is coming to a close today. Tomorrow through Thursday will feature temperatures in the lower 80's - low 90's region-wide. Tomorrow, the heat will generally be confined to the southern and western parts of the region. This is because of a warm front that will enter the area through Ohio, West Virginia, and Virginia, and move northeast. So with that, the southern and southwestern parts of our region will be seeing middle to upper 80's tomorrow, with lower 80's in the mountains. For the rest for the northeast, temperatures should mainly be from the middle 70's to the lower 80's.
By Wednesday, the entire Northeast US will be under our nice ridge. You know what that means, summer is back. Temperatures on Wednesday are expected to exceed 90 degrees in some areas in the southern and coastal locations of our region. Inland, although it won't be as warm, temperatures will still be in the 80's, or about 5 - 10 degrees warmer than where we should be at this time of year. Wednesday will be the hottest day of the warm up, and will be the hottest day remaining in 2013. By Friday and Saturday, temperatures will be back into the mid 60's to mid 70's. Here is the GFS showing Wednesday's highs. The model could be overdoing it but either way I would say it's a pretty good depiction. Thanks for reading and have a great rest of your Wednesday!
