Another Humid Weekend Ahead...

July 11, 2020 // Article by: Brad Miller

As the remants of Tropical Storm Fay continue to move away from the area, the Northeast will go back to a very warm and humid pattern for the weekend.  And while temperatures will run a few degrees above normal both Saturday and Sunday, the heat index will be a concern.  Here is a look at what it will feel like at 2 PM Saturday.  Again, the heat index is a combination of the temperature and dewpoint.  The end result is how this combination feels on the human body.

We'll have similar high temperatures and heat indices on Sunday as the old Bermuda High keeps the weather rather steamy from Washington, DC to Boston.  As for rainfall this weekend.  It looks like Saturday afternoon will offer the best chance for storms and a few could become strong to severe, especially just west of the I-95 corridor.  A weak disturbance will swing towards the area and give the unstable atmosphere just enough of a "kick" to spark scattered showers and storms.  These storms will be capable of producing gusty winds and even some small hail.  And while not everyone will see rain this weekend, there will be some downpours around on Sunday as well.  Here is a look at the forecast rainfall through this weekend.  There will be some localized areas of heavier rain, while other locations stay dry through Sunday.

Well, that's it for now.  Looks like the heat and humidity will stick around for the at least the start of the new work week.  We'll have more on that forecast in our next blog on Monday.  Until then, have a great weekend and keep cool !!
