Keep an Eye to the sky for threatening weather. A Severe Thunderstorm is in effect until 10pm for most of the tri-state area excluding Suffolk, Mercer, Monmouth and Ocean Counties. The remainder of the day will be hazy, hot and humid. Scattered showers and storms will develop. Some of the storms may be severe with winds in excess of 58mph and or one inch hail. Frequent cloud to ground lighting strikes will occur along with torrential downpours. Remember these storms will be scattered and not everyone will get into the action.
The activity will wane this evening and skies will become partly cloudy overnight.
Friday will be a bit more tolerable with it not be quite as hot or humid as a light wind from the North brings down slightly drier air.
A typical July weekend is on the way. The sun will dominate as a Bermuda high re-establishes itself. This is the weather system that results in the 3 H’s along the East coast. Saturday will be hot. Sunday will be a scorcher with high heat and humidity. The heat will spill into the beginning of next week.
Keep it here for a no nonsense, no hype forecast.
