High Heat and Humidity Move in For Work Week

Enjoy today because it’s about to get very hot and humid.  Humidity will be a little bit higher Sunday and it will be a few degrees warmer, but overall it’s still a nice day.  

Monday will be our “transition day” to the heat and humidity.  I have 89° for the Monday forecast but it’s possible that the temperature at TF Green makes it to 90.  

Possible Heat Wave

IF the Monday temperature ends up making it to 90, it could be the start of our next heat wave.  Tuesday and Wednesday have a pretty good chance of making it into the 90s.  One of the reasons for this is that data suggests the wind direction will be from a southwesterly direction.

The southwesterly direction tends to be warmer than the southerly direction…that’s because the southwesterly direction does not drag in as much of the cooler, ocean-influenced air.  IF we end up with southwesterly winds AND full sunshine on Tuesday and Wednesday, mid 90s could easily be achieved.  

Either way, it’s going to FEEL very hot starting on Monday, but especially on Tuesday and Wednesday when the heat index could be into the low 100s! 

Have a good Sunday! -Pete Mangione
