The unsettled pattern is obvious as we look at the radar this morning, a few patchy showers and even a batch of steadier rain can be seen impacting the I-95 corridor, with the batch of rain traveling over NYC. Precipitation should move quickly off the coast after daybreak, and most of the day looks dry. By dry, I mean solely in precipitation, because in terms of humidity it’s going to be muggy. Dewpoints solidly in the 60s will lead to a general sensation of discomfort for those who don’t handle humidity well, especially when combined with the above normal nature of temperatures.
Towards the end of the day shower and thunderstorm activity will approach from the west, potentially reaching into the region before sundown. The best chance will in western Suburbs, and far eastern suburbs will likely have to wait until after sundown.
The cold front sinking south, and is responsible for the unsettled end of the day, will continue to bring a few showers and thunderstorms during the evening before stalling nearby the second half of the night. Because the front will fail to make it south of the Mason-Dixon line, temperatures and humidity levels on Monday look similar to today, unlike further north where they will drop somewhat. Cloud cover tomorrow is a tough one, while most of the strings are generally putting out mostly cloudy to cloudy skies, a majority of clouds will be mid to high level and there could be some
brighter periods, despite the high amount of coverage. The next low crossing the Great Lakes brings another front over the region on Monday night into Tuesday. As the front is pushing into a substantial ridge I don’t expect that much activity will reach the I-95 corridor, however there could still be something about. Following Tuesday’s activity a more pleasant pattern is expected to set up for the end of the week. High pressure will bring back more sunshine, less humidity, and keep temperatures slightly above normal, a perfect combination. It may get cool this weekend, especially at night, however in general it looks like high pressure will continue to bring pleasant conditions.
