The summer of 2020 is quickly earning a notorious reputation for heat and dryness. Mind you not everyone is dry, but in the aggregate the clime is one of summer heat and slime! Tony headlines a new heat wave.
Afternoon temperatures will be kept in check for the start of the work week before a new blast of summer heat arrives for the rest of the week and into the upcoming weekend. The latter half of the week will also see the daily risk for scattered showers and thunderstorms.
After a comfortable Saturday with dry conditions, storms return to the Tri-State on Sunday. While the heat is kept at bay in the near-term, much hotter temperatures will return for the middle and end of the week ahead.
Monday saw a bit better coverage of scattered showers and storms across the Tri-State. However, some areas still missed out on the rain, and virtually all locations saw afternoon temperatures reach well into the 90s. This trend will continue through Friday, then the weekend presents a better opportunity for showers and storms, along with cooler temperatures.
The week ahead will feature continued hot temperatures with higher humidity and a chance for storms each day. However, storms will be of the scattered variety until the weekend, when storm coverage should be greater and temperatures will not be quite as hot.
Hot temperatures will persist through the Fourth of July weekend and well into next week. The only thing that may hamper the heat some is the opportunity for scattered showers and thunderstorms, which will return to the forecast on Monday.
Periods of showers and thunderstorms are expected on Sunday which will keep temperatures down. However, as storm chances diminish day by day through the week ahead, temperatures will start to heat back up into the Fourth of July weekend.
