THE HEAT IS ON !

The Heat and Humidity to increase once again, early this week.
Followed by a pattern change later in the week, that will bring some relief to the Region.


Discussion:

A Strong Upper level Ridge, now over the mid section of the country, will slide eastward over the next couple of days. Before this occurs, a warm front associated with showers and thunderstorms, will effect the area today. Temperatures will continue quite warm with increased Humidity. This system will move out tonight, as a nice dome of heat and humidity, moves in for Tuesday and Wednesday. Both these days will be oppressive, with temperatures in the Mid 90's and very humid conditions.

As we head into the later part of the week, there's signs of a much needed pattern change, that should stick through the weekend. This will bring more seasonable conditions for Thursday through the weekend, as a cold front drops southward and through the Del. Valley, later Wednesday/Wednesday Night. It appears our upper level ridge, will begin to retrograde back westward to the central US, while a trough begins to work itself into the Great Lakes and Northeast. This will allow temperatures and humidity levels to gradually lower.

Delaware Valley Forecast:

Monday: M.Cloudy warm and humid with scattered showers and thunderstorms, Highs in th upper 80's

Monday Night: A few lingering showers during the evening, otherwise P.Cloudy and Muggy, with lows 70 to 75

Tuesday: P.Sunny Hot and Humid, Highs 93 to 97 with a Heat Index of 100-105.

Wednesday: Continues Hot and Humid with a late day or Evening Shower or thunderstorm. Highs 92 to 96, with Heat Index near 100.

Thursday & Friday: P.sunny and warm with less humidity. Highs in the mid to upper 80's.

Take Care,
Ruggie
