BLOG: Not A Bad Weekend
Not a bad start to the weekend yesterday with temperatures around 90 and dewpoints in the low 60s. We’ve certainly experienced much worse for this time of year! High pressure overhead will provide for a nice conclusion to the weekend as temperatures rise into the low 90s once again with dew points in the upper 50s.
Those traveling to the coast will get the sea breezes to kick in by mid-afternoon and make things more comfortable. Rip currents may still be an issue though north of Ocean City, so beachgoers should be cautious when entering the water.
As the work week begins, return flow around the periphery of the high offshore will bring in more humidity as well as push the mercury several degrees higher as well, generally in the mid 90s in most locations. Tuesday looks to be the warmest day as a cold front approaches, but depending on the timing of the front we could be a touch too high if showers and thunderstorms materialize earlier than anticipated. But for now we have no reason to deviate from continuity.
A much more pleasant air mass waits in the wings behind the front with humidity dropping again late Wednesday or Wednesday night with partly sunny skies. An upper-level trough swings through overnight and Thursday looks wonderful with high pressure overhead. Heat and humidity get cranked up once again next weekend as a deep-layered ridge builds across the center of the nation and extends eastward.
Have a great day!
