July 28, 2011: Severe Storms Possible Tomorrow

Reminder: For information about Tropical Storm Don, please refer to the “Tropics” page. Updates on Don are being posted twice a day.


Tomorrow’s Storm Risk:

Tomorrow will bring a slight risk of severe weather. A warm front currently over Pennsylvania will cross the area tomorrow morning, bringing more instability into the area by the afternoon and evening hours. Most of the storms tomorrow evening are likely to stay to the north of the area, but some storms are expected to affect the area as well, especially from NYC and further north. Any storm that reaches the area will be capable of becoming severe. It is possible, however, that the severe weather may need to be shifted further north and away from NYC, and more information on tomorrow’s severe weather risk will be posted tomorrow morning.

Temperatures will be warm tomorrow as well. Mostly cloudy skies are expected, but with a warm air mass, temperatures will still warm into the upper 80s to lower 90s from NYC and further west, and if there is enough sunshine, NE NJ could warm up into the mid 90s. With dew points in the lower 70s, humid conditions are expected tomorrow, and the heat index may reach the upper 90s. Due to a south wind, temperatures in Long Island/S CT will stay cooler, in the lower to mid 80s across most of the area. Upper 70s are expected near the coastal areas, with upper 80s towards western Long Island/SW CT.

Weekend And Next Week:

– Warmth will continue from Friday and beyond. Little change is expected in the conditions, as temperatures stay in the upper 80s to mid 90s from NYC and further west and in the mid to upper 80s in Long Island/S CT with partly sunny skies from Saturday through next Wednesday/Thursday, when the next cold front should reach the region, bringing a risk of thunderstorms late next week along with slightly cooler temperatures.
