April 29: Hot And Humid Weekend Ahead

Today was much warmer than yesterday, with high temperatures returning into the lower 70s in parts of the area. Much warmer temperatures are going to come, however, with parts of the area even reaching 90 degrees again.

Tomorrow’s Outlook:

Tomorrow will continue the warm up, with sunny skies and warm conditions expected. Temperatures are going to be in the mid to upper 70s in the interior, in the upper 70s to lower 80s in the immediate New York City area, and in the lower 70s along the immediate coast. Tomorrow morning, however, should still be relatively chilly, with low temperatures in the upper 30s to lower 40s in the interior areas, and in the mid to upper 40s in the New York City area.

A warm front is going to move through the area tomorrow, and while a few clouds should move in, no rain is expected out of this warm front. As a result, while tonight into tomorrow morning should be chilly, tomorrow night should be mild, with low temperatures in the 50s.

Hot And Humid Weekend

After the warm front passes through, temperatures are going to get much warmer. Saturday will have high temperatures well into the 80s across the area except for the immediate coast. Parts of the immediate New York City area are even likely to reach the lower 90s! Unlike the previous warm spell in early April, when dew points were in the 40s, dew points are expected to be in the 50s and 60s in this case, which would lead to more humid conditions than in early April.

Sunday should be slightly colder than Saturday, as the cold front slowly approaches the area. It now appears that the timing of the front has been delayed to Monday. Despite this, thunderstorms are still expected on Sunday, and may be strong to severe across parts of the area. A Blue Alert has been issued for the severe weather potential.

After the cold front passes through, temperatures are going to cool down into the 70s, with showers returning by the middle of next week.
