Comfortable Humidity Through Labor Day



    Comfortable levels of humidity and nice weather is expected to stick around through Labor Day.

    A big ridge over the eastern United States means any major rain will stay away for days to come. In fact, not a drop of rain is expected the rest of the holiday weekend.

    Unlimited sunshine will be the story through Monday.

    High temperatures will soar to near 90-degrees by Labor Day.

    It turns very humid Tuesday, and that type of humidity lasts through at least Friday.

    The 90-degree weather will stick around through Wednesday of next week.

    At the shoreline, temperatures will in the lower-80s Sunday and in the middle-80s Monday.

    Despite the increasing heat, the key to the forecast is that humidity will stay away!

    A pattern change late week means the end of the dry, sunny weather. A cold front will get hung up over the region and result in showers and possibly thunder on Thursday. Showers linger into Friday and Saturday.

    The dry weather sticks around through Wednesday of next week, but then a dip in the jet stream finally arrives. That means the potential exists for a thunderstorm on either Thursday or Friday, and the humidity will be moderate by then.

    The rainfall deficit at Bradley International is 5.4 inches, which is roughly five and a half weeks’ worth of rain. While the deficit won’t be completely erased late week, at least a dent could be taken out of it.
