First 90 degree day possible this week ⛱️

Update #399

How nice is the weather right now?! An area of high pressure is stretching down from central Canada, giving the Hudson Valley comfortably cool conditions after quite a humid stretch. The lower humidity will last until later Tuesday.

Humidity faded away on Saturday afternoon following the passage of cold front — the green trace shows dew point, which is a measure of humidity; note the dip!

Monday will be seasonably warm with sunshine. Tuesday will be about 10 degrees warmer than Monday, with high temperatures rising into the upper 80s. Sounds like pool weather! 🏊

The humidity will begin to rise Tuesday afternoon and you may find yourself flicking the AC on once again.

Wednesday could be the hottest day of the year so far with high temperatures near 90 thanks to a southerly wind flow. 🌡️

On Thursday, a front will approach the Hudson Valley from the west, bringing some more clouds and a shower or thunderstorm chance. The moisture will have once been part of Tropical Storm Cristobal, which will make landfall in Louisiana on Sunday. Timing remains a bit uncertain at this point, so keep an eye on the forecast if you have plans.

At this point, dry weather is favored for Friday. It will likely be a touch cooler too following the passage of Thursday's front.

Next weekend, a disturbance will approach from the Great Lakes, probably causing scattered showers and thunderstorms across the Northeast both days. Temperatures don't look quite so hot.

The week of June 15th looks cooler and perhaps a bit unsettled to start but warmer to finish.

Have a great week!
