6/17 – Rob’s “Hot & Pleasant” Morning Forecast
Lower humidity in the region will continue through Thursday before subtle changes begin to occur. Thursday through Saturday will basically be a continuation of the first half of the week…characterized by above normal daytime temps, below normal lows, and no rain (for the most part) as the humidity will begin rebounding. An isolated storm along sea breeze can’t be ruled out. The driver of this pattern starts with an upper low centered in the southeast CONUS. The low will remain there during most of this period which will maintain northerly flow. This keeps column moisture down. Model soundings show PW`s in the low 1″ range Thursday with a gradual increase thru the weekend. That upper low will finally open up and lift out as another trough drops out of Canada into the midsection of the country on Sunday. Expect summer-time popup convection to return with regularity Monday with rain chances well over 50% possibly each day next week. Temps will be similar with highs in the low 90s and lows in the lower 70s.
