Because our original weather thread has grown so much over the years, it has to be dropped and a new thread started. Post away. JayCT, Moderator

I assume by the new name we can discuss weather anywhere? If not, maybe we should change the name to " Connecticut Weather Thread "

The heat is returning and even though we been below normal past couple days, this weekend's heat should extend the monthly warmer than normal temps to 15 straight.

Saturday will be the warmest day BUT.. The hottest pockets will stay south of NYC. Upper 80s mostly in CT but NYC southwards will be warmer. I wouldnt be surprised to find 90 readings somewhere in CT.

Looks like that last heat wave was a pattern "changer"... not changed yet. Its coming, and its going.

Peaking through the temp map below are the 100s. Southeast will have a real feel of above 108 in spots.

NWS Boston:

National Weather Service Text Product Display

BRIEF PATTERN CHANGE WILL OCCUR OVER NEW ENGLAND WITH THE CURRENT
FULL LATITUDE TROUGH ACROSS THE NORTHEAST AND SOUTHEAST CANADA
LIFTING OUT INTO THE N. ATLC LATE THU.

THIS WILL PROMOTE HEIGHT RISES INTO THE NORTHEAST AND ALLOW THE EXCESSIVE HEAT IMPACTING THE ROCKIES AND PLAINS TO ADVECT NORTHEAST INTO SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND FRI-
SUN.

WHILE THERE IS A LOW TO MODERATE PROBABILITY OF A 3 DAY
HEAT WAVE...THE HEAT AND HUMIDITY WILL BE RELATIVELY SHORT LIVED
ACROSS THE AREA AS THE MEAN MID LEVEL TROUGH REDEVELOPS OVER
SOUTHEAST CANADA AND INTO THE NORTHEAST EARLY NEXT WEEK.

THIS SHOULD BRING SOME RELIEF TO SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND IN THE FORM OF
TEMPERATURES COOLING OFF TO SEASONABLE NORMS ALONG WITH LOWER
HUMIDITY MON-WED.

Not sure if you guys are following the wildfires out West but it is pretty nasty out there and has displaced 40,000+ people.

How does this relate to us? Well...smoke travels and as you can see on the Satellite image here, It's approaching us...

We'll just see a haze way up above but if anyone smells a touch of smoke, they want you to report it to NWS.

Times like this remind us how Volcanic eruptions and radiation travel through the layers of our atmosphere.



NWS BTV.
"The smoke from the huge fires way out west is making it's way east. This morning's satellite image shows the smoke across Ontario and the eastern Great Lakes (note the light gray smudgy appearance highlighted in the image). That smoke will be moving into our area late today and tomorrow, and it will turn the sky rather hazy. The smoke should be high enough in the sky so we won't otherwise notice it, but if you do end up being able to smell the faint odor of smoke, please let us know"

I think it was a good idea to refresh the CT Weather page.

As far as what lies ahead – typical summer - style weather for the East Coast into the weekend and next week; Highs should crack 90’s or better from central Rhode Island southward in the coming days. So another good weekend to hit the area beaches in CT/RI/NJ:




As far as surf temps...seas are still cool up north in upper New England (NH northward) with SST only in the 12 - 17 C (55 - 64 F)...warming to 18 - 20 C (65 - 68 F) from Connecticut/Long Island/N.NJ.....to 21-22 C (70 - 72 F) along the southern NJ coast. I looks like 80 F (26.5 C) SST have reached the Outer Banks so far. I'll be in Atlantic City this weekend so I'll check out SST temps:

Once again we were WELL BELOW normal for the day high. This entire month has seen well below normal values but 4 days of heat we'll never know in the future.

Hartford, CT was 13 below normal yesterday for the high.

^^^^

Yes, no doubt the heat as been up and down so far, though summer is only a few days old.

But, NWS Hartford seems to be running a bit cooler than NWS Bridgeport - which as of today is running ABOVE NORMAL so far this June. Yesterday the high at NWS Bridgeport was 5 F ABOVE NORMAL. So northern CT seems to be getting cooler temps than southern CT. Whether that is good or bad I guess is perspective.

One thing is for sure: Friday and the coming days will be truly torrid from the subtropical Gulf/South Atlantic states right to Rhode Island. Only the upper West Coast above CA will have any cooler weather. I can't remember the last time I saw a map like this in May or June:



Be careful out there folks. Light weight/light colored clothing, and spend time in the AC when you can. Looks like another round of old fashioned East Coast tropical weather.
