The dewpoint has been creeping into the 60s at night. During the day it has dropped the last few days, only to rise at night. It does make a bit uncomfortable sleeping weather.

For those of you who don't know, the dewpoint is the temperature which it would need to drop to in order to start raining. The higher it is, the more moisture there is in the air.

Except now it'll get humid the next couple of days during the daytime also.

We're supposed to have a big cooldown from Wednesday into the July 4th weekend. In more rural and inland areas, they're talking about it staying in the 70s all day and 50s at night (even in NYC they're saying 80 as a high and low 60s for a low). So what goes around comes around......

Dont be surprised if June breaks an all time warm record. It is disgustingly hot & humid outside... At least the crops are doing well this year...

Two weeks ago I was in Middle Tennessee, southeast of Nashville. The dewpoint IIRC never dropped below 72, often was 75-77 range. Air temperature was in the 90s from roughly 9:30 in the morning to at least 7 in the evening. Highs were 95 or above nearly every day I was down there.

That was disgustingly hot and humid outside. Here it's just uncomfortable. Though tomorrow's 90 temp 70 dewpoint forecast is a flashback to the TN trip, to a degree.

Well, for perspective, the NWS NYC website says that Central Park is averaging 74.0F this month, which if the month ended today according to their "top 10 by month" list would put it in a tie for 8th. However, 3rd place is only 0.5F higher (the record, which was set back in 1943, was 76.2F, so "warmest" isn't too likely regardless).

But it although tomorrow and Tuesday are supposed to be hot, Wednesday is supposed to be considerably below normal (as is Tuesday night's low), so it may not budge up much more if at all.

You can also on the site get the all-time (but not top 10) by month for Bridgeport and Newark. Since this is a Connecticut forum, Bridgeport does have a distant shot. It's all-time is 71.7F in 1994 and it's at 70.9F now (these averages don't include today's warm readings). But again, I think Wednesday is going to make it fall short.

The record monthly mean temp you are referring to (June 1994 – 71.7 F)…is the record based on the local almanac from 1948 to 2009 (I think?). But I think NOAA might have not included June 2008 yet in that:

The record warmest June at NWS Bridgeport was actually just set in 2008 (72.2 F). Which this June (2010) has no shot at all of breaking. You can check it out here (Bridgeport/Prelimminary monthly data/archived data June 2008).

National Weather Service Climate

Maybe NWS didn't include June 2008...or maybe they made a mistake. Perhaps we should E-mail them - lol.

I just thought weather –watchers in Connecticut might find it interesting how high the heat/heat index’s are at this early hour across the Tri-State area: Feels like we are in the deep tropics – lol . As of 12:00 noon today…here are some temps/dew points/heat indexes from official National Weather Service stations (hourly weather roundup):

National Weather Service Forecast Office - Upton, NY

NWS 12:00

City/Temp/Dewp/Heat index:
Bridgeport -87/71/93
Hartford –92/69/97
Meriden – 91/69/96
NYC- 92/69/97
Kennedy International, NY – 95/68/99
Atlantic City, NJ – 95/69/100
Toms River, NJ – 97/72/105

I checked Freeport, Bahamas out of curiosity:

http://weather.noaa.gov/weather/current/MYGF.html

Freeport, Bahamas – 87/75/95

It’s amazing that cities like Bridgeport have similar temps/dew points/heat indexes as Freeport, Bahamas...while cities like Hartford, NYC, and Toms River have higher heat indexs than Freeport. At this hour NWS Miami is 89 F/dew 77/HI - 98 F. I like heat...but this is really getting hot even for me ! I turned the hose on - HOT water came out - lol. I guess old fashioned summers are back on the East Coast folks.

I actually email them a lot as they are quite lazy about that section of the website. I have in the past caught them on things like this this and emailed them and they've always updated it correctly pretty quick with an "apology" reply. I might do so shortly as well on this one (thanks for catching this). but feel free to do so so they hear from "someone else".
