The first full week (August 7-13) of August will be off to a rough start on Monday but the remainder of the week is looking beautiful with seasonably cool conditions plus low humidity.
Monday, August 7: I mentioned on Monday that it will be a rough day and that’s because there will be rounds of rain and thunderstorms throughout the day. These storms may even be heavy due to high amounts of water in the atmosphere. The storms look to be the worse in the afternoon and evening, which is when there’s the greatest chance for the heavy rain. The storms should continue into the first half of the overnight, then winding down by the wee hours of Tuesday morning.
Tuesday, August 8: The storms should clear out by daybreak Tuesday, allowing for us to get back to the gorgeous, summer weather. Expect a mix of sun and clouds with low humidity and a high very close to average at around 80 degrees.
Wednesday, August 9: Wednesday will be a spectacular day. You have got to get outside and enjoy it because it will be pretty much perfect. Sunny skies, dry air, and a high of 80 degrees sounds very nice to me.
Thursday, August 10: It will still remain beautiful heading into our Thursday. It will feature mostly sunny skies and temperatures still around where they should be for this time of the year into the low 80s.
Friday, August 11: Humidity may become a bit more present by Friday as storms begins to enter western portions of the Northeast. Closer to home, I think we’ll still be dry, however, with partly cloudy skies shining overhead.
Saturday, August 12: The start of the weekend is shaping up to be a nice one, as of now, featuring partly cloudy skies again. The air will feel a bit sticky due to higher dew points, but at least temperatures will be bearable into the upper 70’s.
Sunday, August 13: Humidity will peak on Sunday as the chance for storms returns to end the seven-day stretch. Expect hit or miss storms throughout the day, especially in the afternoon as we maximize all the daytime heating.
