I don't hear any pool splashing and obnoxious kids screaming..



5:30pm Temps. Warmer in Maine than NYC.


I'll grab a stat for CT. For now here's this.


Last time Boston stayed below 70F 2 days in a row at the end of July was back in 2000 (26-27). Before that was 1986. (30-31). Definitely a special pattern.

Picture perfect weekend weather on tap for all of western NY and the North Country. On Saturday a splitting trough will move east of the forecast area, with the southern portion settling over Virginia and North Carolina while the northern portion exits through the Canadian maritimes. The result for us will be a pool of cooler air aloft advecting across the region in the wake of this trough passage. 850mb temperatures around +8/+9C with a northerly wind picking up lake moisture and upsloping will allow for cloudiness to linger through Saturday morning, before diurnal mixing helps break clouds in a cumulus field for the afternoon. High temps Saturday will be slightly below normal in the mid 70s with low humidity

The long term period will feature a few beautiful summer days with
cooler temperatures as a ridge of high pressure builds into the
northeastern CONUS. To begin the period, however, a cold front will
drop through the region Thursday afternoon/night, bringing a chance
for showers and thunderstorms. Right on its heels, an upper level
low, developing over the western Great Lakes region on Thursday,
will track through or just south of the region on Friday.

Open those doors and windows this morning!


6am temps. Clear skies north of the front allowed for a nice drop off.


Nice gradient NYC southwards.


Mid 50s Danbury.
58 outside here.
65 in NYC.
Low-Mid 50s Eastern Long Island.
40s in some spots in MA, NH, upstate NY. (only 3 times since 2003 Norwood, MA dropped into the 40s at the end of July!)




National Weather Service words, not mine. Not just past 2-3 days. More of this coming again this weekend. And No humidity! Amazing for this time of year.

Although there are differences in the specifics, models are in
very good agreement signaling an unseasonably strong low
pressure system and attending strong cold front dropping
southeast across the area for the later part of the work week.

Behind the front, an unusually cooler
Canadian airmass moves in during Friday, but upper dynamics and
wraparound moisture from the upper low will keep showers and
storms going Thurday night and much of Friday, especially in
the north. Because of this, given the recent heavy rains,
flooding is also possible across the north Thursday night into
friday. So look for a dramatic weather change from Thursday to
Friday from very warm and humid to much cooler and damp.

.LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
As of 350 PM Tuesday...

The aforementioned upper low and wraparound rains lift out
early Saturday, with dry Canadian high pressure quickly taking
firm hold over the region for the weekend. Unusually dry air
will now be the rule for this time of year, with a slow warming
under summer time sunshine. Still, temperatures for the weekend
will be below normal, especially at night with the drier air.

Was 5:16 AM and 8:30 PM for Hartford. It's now 5:40 AM and 8:14 PM. Sigh! A loss of 40 minutes for sunlight. SIGH again!

It looks like today (Wednesday) will likely be the best day of the week overall.

If the weekend just hover around 70-75F I'll at least be content in not needing to wear pants and a jacket. I wear pants enough during the week, I like my shorts on the weekend.

Put this together real quick.




Summer Avg Temp departure at BDR. I didn't know last year was the most above normal. Really? Last below normal summer we had was 2009. Coldest summer was 1982.





Also....... A look at the Mean Minimum temps for Summer and Mean Max temps.


Note, night time has gotten much warmer faster. Daytime slight uptrend but note all the years being below the trend line mostly before 2009. We're due for a drop below again. Maybe this August can drop our Summer Avg this year a bit more?

Which is what I've been saying all along (i.e. nighttime lows going up faster than daytime highs, etc.). However, I'll grant I too have some suspicions about BDR because it is not as suddenly recent or rapid in most other places (i.e. in NYC you see this starting in the late 80s/early 90s and on a more gradual scale) and there have been several times that BDR was one of the warmer spots in the area the last few years, which used to be a lot less common. I don't think BDR has developed a suddenly much larger "heat island" in the last few years compared to before.

While I'm not sure it will end up a "below normal" summer this time, this recent nice string and no real sign of heat in the near future means maybe this will be the least "above normal" in the 2010s so far. We'll see.

I highly doubt we'll end up below normal, unless all of August turns out to be like September, and September is like October. We are due a few more heat waves this year before the summer is out.
