7 Day Weather Forecast (Temperatures & Precipitation)

          Over the next week of weather, we will have a fall-like pattern. So lets jump right into the temperatures. In the next 2 days, an exiting though will allow temperatures to reach the upper 60's to middle 70's, obviously depending on location. By Tuesday, a reinforcing cold shot will fly down from Canada, packing more cooler temperatures, meaning highs on Tuesday will most likely only reach 70 in most locations across the northeast. By the later part of next week, a ridge will build in from the central plains, bringing warmer temperature along with it of course.

          Now I would have to say, it will only bring our temperatures back to average at best for a few days, before more cold air flows down in about 10 days. But the temperatures will be most below average in the inland portions or our region, where the through will be centered for a couple days. By the coastal regions of our region, slightly below normal temperatures to just average temperatures will be common in the next 7 days. Here is the 7 day temperature forecast comparison to normal.

          Lets jump to the precipitation side of things now. Overall, the Northeast US will see below average precipitation in the middle of it, with slightly below average precipitation on the eastern and western parts of the area. The only spots likely to see slightly above average precipitation will be the western half of Ohio. Of course, any precipitation that fall in our region will be rainfall, except maybe on Mt.Washington, but I would have to say not many people live there. The pattern will be pretty persistent for the next week, which is why there is not much to talk about in terms of rain. So here is the 7 day precipitation forecast: comparison to normal.

Any Cooler Temperatures Down The Pipeline? Find Out!

          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!

The Heat Is Back! How Long Will It Last? Find Out!

          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!
