BREAKING NEWS Justice Ginsburg dies at the age of 87. Full Story

Can We Just Hit Fast Forward?

More summer-like heat and humidity is expected to plague the Tri-State for the at least the next week. Worse yet, it'll be accompanied by scattered rainfall at times.

While Tuesday was a more pleasant day overall (that's not difficult considering yesterday's heat indices were comparable to that of the surface temperature of the sun), we still dealt with our fair share of heat and humidity; today's high of 87° felt more like 92°. Quiet conditions will linger overnight tonight and into early tomorrow as the mercury gradually dwindles to 72°. Southerly winds settling in tomorrow morning will force more moisture into the region and in turn produce chances for scattered showers and thunderstorms.

A stalled cold front draped across our northernmost counties will do little to supply relief from those aforementioned tropical conditions. When it's not raining tomorrow afternoon, peak temperatures will reach toward 90° with heat indices nearing 97°. Thursday looks as though it will be slightly cooler, but again scattered rainfall is anticipated both that morning and afternoon. Fortunately, drier weather will return just in time for our weekend ahead; after arriving Friday, mainly clear skies are expected to persist through our Saturday and Sunday as well. However, the oppressive heat and humidity combo will keep our "feels like" temperatures in the mid to upper 90s each afternoon.

Current model data suggests that a cold front will finally swing through the Tri-State come Monday. If the forecast holds, temperatures may fall from the mid to low 80s as we kick off the work week into the upper 70s area-wide on Tuesday. Continuing that trend, afternoon highs may even dip into the mid 70s by next Wednesday! If that holds true, not only will temperatures peak nearly 15° below average for that time of the year, but we could even see our coolest day since late May!
