A weak frontal boundary slowly shifted through the region yesterday, with temperatures falling back down to near average as the hot and humid air mass from last week was pushed offshore. This frontal boundary will remain near the region through the rest of the week and weekend, with occasional rounds of showers and storms, such as today and Tuesday and possibly next weekend, continuing into at least early August.
Sunday, July 21 Observations:
Following the scattered storm activity on Saturday, the weak cold front moved through the region, with lower humidity and slightly cooler temperatures observed across the region. High temperatures reached the low to mid 80s in Long Island and southern CT and the mid to upper 80s for the rest of the area. Temperatures failed to reach 90 degrees across most of the area, breaking the 7-day heat wave that started on Sunday, July 14, except for Teterboro and Somerville in NJ that reached 90 degrees, extending the heat wave to 8 days.
