On Tuesday, temperatures will actually stay below-normal in most spots of the Mid-Atlantic/NE US with highs, for example, confined to the low-to-mid 80’s in Philly where normal highs are about 88 degrees (at PHL). Given the general west-to-east air flow in the upper part of the atmosphere, this front will have difficulty pushing too far to the south and east over the next 24 hours or so and is likely to stall out later tomorrow in the southern Mid-Atlantic region. As such, it’ll stay unsettled around here for the remainder of the work week with additional chances for showers and thunderstorms to go along with overall seasonal temperatures. Another cool front will head this way late in the week and all signs point to this next one having more “push” behind it and a comfortable air mass is likely to follow its passage for the upcoming weekend.
As far as the past weekend goes, temperatures did indeed make a run to 100 degrees on both days in the I-95 corridor. In Philly, the official high temperatures on Saturday and Sunday were 98 and 99 degrees respectively. In Washington, D.C., Reagan National Airport (DCA) surged to 96 degrees on Saturday and 94 degrees on Sunday. In NYC, highs were 95 degrees in Central Park and 96 degrees at JFK Airport on each weekend day. The airport at Newark, NJ (EWR) – which often runs a few degrees hotter than nearby airports – actually did reach triple digits with 101 degrees on Saturday and 102 degrees on Sunday.
