High pressure has nosed itself down from the north, promoting a dry day across the region with some sunshine. As high pressure shifts eastward, the wind flow will turn more southwesterly tonight and tomorrow increasing the humidity ahead of the next storm system.
The record heat that is broiling the middle of the country is moving our way in two different waves.
We are wrapping up an amazing stretch of dry, July weather. After topping out at 87 degrees, this becomes the third straight day with highs below average.
Not a bad start to the weekend yesterday with temperatures around 90 and dew points in the low 60s. We’ve certainly experienced much worse for this time of year!
After a warm, beautiful day with very low humidity yesterday, we had a repeat today. A small cluster of thunderstorms did develop over southern PA that have drifted into Washington and Allegany counties this afternoon/evening.
Gorgeous sunshine gave way to some afternoon clouds and then a quick blast of showers and a few thunderstorms. That small batch of stormy weather came racing southeastward from PA, where it was much stronger.
