A strong and very warm ridge of high pressure is building into the Great Lakes and northeastern United States. We are going to be entering an unseasonably warm stretch of weather that will last all week long and perhaps even into early next week. The chance of much needed precipitation remains low. If we see any showers or storms it would be on Thursday with a weak cold front trying to drop across the area. The chance of rain is slight. Daytime highs this week will be around 10-15 degrees above average.
Clear skies are expected again tonight with lows in the mid and upper 50s to mid 60s. Fog will develop again after midnight.
The hottest day this week should be Wednesday. I am still going to keep us dry through the day. There is very little, if any, forcing to cause any precipitation to develop. Highs will be in the 80s. Overnight lows will be in the mid 60s under partly cloudy to clear skies.
Thursday will remain very warm and mostly dry. A weak cold front looks like it will try to drop through the area. Because it is forecast to be a weak front, the chance of rain is still low at this point. I’ll put the rain percentage chance at 20% for now. Highs will be around 84. Friday remains very warm with highs in the low 80s.
The upcoming Labor Day weekend looks to remain dry as well. Saturday, Sunday and even Labor Day are shaping up to be partly cloudy to sunny and very warm. Highs through this upcoming weekend may remain in the mid to upper 80s, or roughly 10-15 degrees above average.
An early look at Labor Day shows partly cloudy and very warm conditions remaining in place. Highs will be in the mid 80s. The heat could stick around through early to mid next week but looks to lose its grip on the area by later next week.
