Today and yesterday were days that nobody likes. Can you guess why besides political issues, THE HEAT! Widespread 80's and 90's have been the most common temperature. Which as you know, is summer-like, and we are all tired of summer, so that's enough of this nonsense. Tomorrow will be the last day of this heat, before a major cool down is here! By Friday, highs will be held to the 60's and lower 70's everywhere around the region. At night, temperatures will get down to the 30's and 40's also around the area. Ooh yea, that's just the start of the good news. On Saturday, temperatures will be in the upper 50's north will lower the lower 60's in the southern mountains. In the Big cities such as Boston, New York, and Philly, temperatures won't even hit the 70 degree mark.
This pattern will continue into the majority of next week, with once again temperatures stuck in the upper 60's to middle 70's as highs across the Northeast US. This all is a reasult of a cold front digging down from central and eastern Canada, that will hold temperatures down. After that, a reinforcing shot of cold air will race it's way into the northeast on Tuesday. With all of this occuring, below normal temperatures should prevail until the ridge in the Central US moves east, and brings our temperatures back up to the middle and upper 70's to 80's. That is in the longer range, but will likely play out. I am not saying it will get even close to how hot it is now during that period of time, but what I'm trying to say is enjoy this cool down while it lasts. Here is a GFS model hour where I think best forecasts the high temperatures for Sunday through Thursday of next week. Thanks for reading and have a great, safe rest of your day!
