10 Day Temperatures Forecast: A Cool Down or A Warm Up Expected? Find Out!

          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.

CFS Continues To Show Persistent Cold Air For This Winter

          Here at Northeast Weather Action, one of the models we use to predict the temperatures for winter is a model called the CFS. This models has been reliable the past few years, which prompts it to be used for the 2013 - 2014 winter outlook. So after checking out our new winter outlook, you have the idea that this winter will likely be colder once again. But the CFS was not shown in the outlook, so I figured I would show you it now. Over for the start of this winter, it shows very warm conditions across the west with very cold conditions across the east. As we get further into winter, it looks like the east will remain cooler and the west should return to normal temperatures.

          So how much of an impact does this have on our future winter outlooks? It won't have a big impact but it will still be in mind when making the next winter outlook, which will be the 2013 - 2014 Winter Outlook - 2nd Update, which should be out in a month around late August or early September. Thanks for reading and stay tuned to Northeast Weather Action for the latest weather updates and forecast, as well as outlooks! Have a safe and great day and here are the CFS v2 temperatures for this winter!

Remnants Of Tropical Storm Dorian May Be Re-Forming

          Tropical Storm Dorian, a storm that had it's up and downs, but never really got anywhere fast and fell apart quickly. So what is left of the storm, because it can't be all gone? Well this is a very good question and has a very unexpected answer if asked a few days ago. The remnants are moving west-northwest soon to the north of the Dominican Republic. With the sea surface temperatures and upper level winds favorable for development, why could this thing not reform? There is actually no reason for it not to, and likely within the next several hours into a Tropical Depression or even Tropical Storm.

          The models of course give us an idea of where this storm is going and just how strong or weak it could get. So the majority of models have this storm at least intensifying into a moderate - strong tropical storm in the coming few days, possibly between 60 and 84 hours out which is about three days. Then a small portion of them have the storm possibly becoming a category 1 or even 2 hurricane by about 4 days, or 96 hours. Here is a model showing possible intensity's of then remnants of Tropical Storm Dorian.

          As you can see from these new models runs, they have the storm making landfall anywhere from 96 - 120 hours out, or about the next 4 or 5 days from now which would be on Thursday or Friday. So this is the latest update on the remnants of Dorian, which at this point are very close to being re-classified. Here is the latest forecast projection by Northeast Weather Action and stay right here for the latest updates on the re-forming Dorian as well as all other northeast Weather Action. Have a great rest of your day and stay safe everyone!
