This past Winter wasn’t bad at all but when Winter gets rough, I think about weeks like this one…sunny, warm and low humidity. In my mind it really doesn’t get much better than this.
High pressure is inbound and out ahead of it northerly winds have cleaned out last week’s humidity and it won’t be returning for several days. The air will be so dry the next few days that even though there will be shortwave troughiness over us through the middle of the week making the air unstable enough for convective cumulus to form no showers or storms will be able to bubble up. So expect more of the same, highs in the 80s (except some upper 70s at the beaches), lots of sunshine, low humidity and light wind.
The high pressure that will be located just to our west through the middle of the week will begin to move east of us as we hit the weekend. This will allow for the humidity to climb and a bit of heat to build back in. Temps will be closer to 90 on Friday and Saturday and they certainly will feel like it when you factor in the humidity. With the increasing humidity, a weak surface front and a mid-level vortmax present on Sunday, the chance of thunderstorms returns and will be quite high after days and days of very low chances leading up to Sunday.
All in all it looks like a great Summer stretch…perhaps it will be the best of the Summer…hopefully not!
