Discussion

Humidity levels remain very high this morning in the Mid-Atlantic region with dew points – a direct measure of overall humidity – well up in the 70’s along much of the I-95 corridor. The high heat remains as well with temperatures likely to soar well up into the 90’s for afternoon highs making for very uncomfortable conditions indeed. The heat will back off some on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, but is to return in full force by early next week with temperatures likely to soar well up into the 90’s on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.

In terms of rainfall, there will be an enhanced chance of showers and thunderstorms during each of the next few day and any rainfall can be very heavy at times. The combination of tropical moisture and a stalled-out frontal system will keep the atmosphere quite unstable through the second half of the week and when some daytime heating is added into the mix, the result is likely to be the development of numerous showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening hours.
