Beginning Tuesday, the heat returns for yet another tour. Temperatures will make another climb from “slightly above average” to “well above average,” as highs make another run at the upper 90s.
Tropical Storm Colin dissipated for the second time over the weekend. It won’t be back this time. Have no fear, though; the Atlantic hurricane season is nearing its peak, and there are two areas of interest that the National Hurricane Center is currently monitoring. One is located near where Colin originally developed early last week and has been given a 70% chance for tropical development. The other is located just off the east coast of Florida, and bears watching. It’s only given a low chance of development at this point, but given its proximity to the coast, any development may have a quick impact.
We’ve hit the hottest part of the day for Monday; tonight will feature partly cloudy skies as temperatures drop into the low 70s overnight tonight. A high pressure ridge over the area is going to bring an end to the reasonably cool weather, unfortunately.
Beginning Tuesday, the heat returns for yet another tour. Temperatures will make another climb from “slightly above average” to “well above average,” as highs make another run at the upper 90s. High pressure in the region will keep any chances for rain at a minimum. Lows Tuesday night will fall into the upper 70s.
Squirrelcast (vs. New Hampshire, 7:05pm): Hot and humid weather is the story for the day. Game-time temperature will be in the mid 90s, dropping into the mid 80s by game’s end. Save for the threat of a few clouds overhead, there’s no significant weather to worry about.
A cold front approaching the area will make things slightly more interesting for Wednesday. High temperatures will make another run at 100, with the chance for a stray shower or thunderstorm into the late afternoon/evening. Lows will drop into the mid 70s overnight as a cold front approaches the region from the north.
Squirrelcast (vs. New Hampshire, 7:05pm): More hot and humid, with a small chance for a passing evening shower or thunderstorm. Temperatures will be in the mid 90s for the first pitch, again falling into the mid 80s by the ninth inning.
I’m going to be watching the tropics over the next couple days in addition to the heat. I’ll have a complete forecast on Thursday.
Update: Monday, 9:30pm EDT: A couple updates. The Department of Environmental Quality has issued a Code Orange air quality alert for Tuesday from 6am to midnight. Additionally, the National Hurricane Center has upgraded the area of interest off the coast of Florida (dubbed Invest 94L) to a medium chance (40%) for development into a tropical system.
