With high pressure building in to the region we will have a couple of dry days in a row!
Strong showers and thunderstorms moved through the region overnight as a cold front approached the area. The cold front will move thru the region and offshore by later morning or this afternoon and gusty winds will continue for at least the first half of the day before they subside as high pressure builds in for a couple of days. Heat and humidity will linger through the week with highs well into the 80s and low 90s all the way into the weekend. We’ll have quite a few dry days this week with just a minute chance for an isolated shower or thunderstorm to fire up in the heat of the day but with high pressure in place and an upper level ridge in place across the eastern half of the country most days it will be very hard for showers to break the cap. The next chance for more widespread showers looks to be another front moving thru the region later Friday.
It’s that time of year that I need to remind folks to please, NEVER leave your kids or pets in the car. The interior of your car will heat up extremely quickly and reach dangerous, if not deadly, levels in a very short period of time. If you want to take the dog for a car ride than make it a dedicated ride for them, don’t stop for groceries or to pick something up. It only takes a few minutes for the temperature in your vehicle to reach those dangerous levels. If you have a small child be sure you double check the back seat when you get out.
