WEATHER BLOG: Heating Up
High pressure over the East Coast continues to dominate the weather. This high pressure is projected to slide southward Sunday night and into Monday. By the afternoon, the center of the high will be near the Carolinas. With the upper ridge over the center of the country, we will be on the rim of the high and this will allow a few waves of energy to ride along it. Starting Monday, the first of these waves will come over the top of the ridge and affect the Northeast. The heaviest rain is expected to be off to the north across northern New England back to Lake Huron. As this feature moves off to the southeast, we can’t rule out a spotty shower Monday night with most areas remaining dry.
By Tuesday, we will be between two systems shifting our flow around from the southwest, so it does look like it should be warmer on Tuesday than Monday. Dew points are also projected to rise into the mid to upper 60s, so humidity will be on the rise too. Because of this, pop-up precipitation can’t be ruled out. We will be keeping a close eye on a system by mid-week with our wettest day forecast on Wednesday. In the meantime we will be heating up again to near 90 degrees starting Tuesday through the end of the work-week.
