The heatwave is over - a seven-day period of heat and humidity has been broken. Monday’s highs were in the upper-70s and low-80s. A seasonable June afternoon was had by most in New Jersey.
Gusty winds drag this seasonable, delightfully drier air mass from Canada through the region. I hope you had a chance to soak it in. Heat returns and so will the humidity making the middle of the week feel uncomfortably warm once again.
TONIGHT: Clear and wonderful. Lows in the 50s and 60s.
TUESDAY: Very warm. Most neighborhoods are back in the low-90s. The key is that there is very little atmospheric moisture. It's a dry heat. This pattern is also short-lived. As the Tuesday evening wears on, southwestern winds slide that muggy Carolina air back towards the state.
WEDNESDAY: Early sun and the Southwest flow quickly get the temperatures to jump into the 90s. This, combined with higher humidity, brings the “summer stickies” back once again. It will feel more like 98- 100 degrees. Strong storms are possible later in the evening. A few could approach severe limits with damaging winds and hail. After the storms pass, the rest of the week looks pleasant.
