There are reporting stations in our area with temperatures in the upper 80s dew point in the mid-70s and heat index near a hundred. You do not need 90 degree days to feel very uncomfortable in summer. Days like today make me long for winter Sad

Tomorrow looks like a great day. Sunshine, upper 80s, lower humidity. I'm heading to the beach. Spending the day there. How's everyone's summer going?

Hasn't been too bad of a summer heat wise Frank. Lot's of thunderstorms to track. Heading up to Mystic and Foxwood casinos in Connecticut with the wife and our two dear friends on Wednesday for several days. Already looking forward to see how everything shakes out for the upcoming winter. I know, too soon for that.

Wasn't a strong line of storms here in NNJ. A few rumbles of thunder and a few pockets of heavier rain around me. No measurable rain for me this go-round. SPC is wrong again.

with a little over 70% (june 1-august 5th) of summer gone cpk is 1.2* above normal and Newark at +1.1* which if 2000 to 2015 temps were used instead of 1981-2010 averages then we would probably be below normal. considering how warm our planet has gotten over the years this summer is anything but hot. of all the mets summer outlooks I saw only steve d called for near normal temps.

Yes, the thunderstorm activity has been impressive. I don't track those very much mainly because I like spending my time in the summer doing other things. But it's been fun. Lots of lightning. And yea, we've had a couple of heat waves but it has not been as bad as I thought it could get.

Awesome! Yea I've been down the Jersey Shore multiple times. Water is clear and fairly warm. Highlight was the cruise to the Bahamas for sure. Maybe I'll go away around Labor Day, we'll see. Have a great time in Disney. I need to get back there. Drink LOTS of water. Disney in August could be brutal. Ask me what the weather will look like in about a week. I'll try put together a forecast.

Yea, hasn't been bad. June was average and July was above average. July was actually pretty warm for much in the northeast according to the chart below. If August finishes above normal, it'll probably be +2 or higher which would be an above normal temp seson.

Yes doc a nice cool morning however it looks like we will be going through a very uncomfortable stretch starting Thursday especially with the humidity. Not uncommon for August. we are almost at the end and can see the light at the end of the tunnel now.

Pretty impressive dew points coming up Thursday through Sunday on most models. Mid seventies looks like the average with some places getting close to 80 uggh!!! The flow will come straight from the Gulf of Mexico which has record sea surface temperatures right now. can't get more tropical air than this.

This is from a met from another board:
For the NYC Metro Region, there are still many unanswered questions about a possible up and coming heatwave. The first question obviously, is how hot will it be and how long will it last. Technically, the criteria for a heatwave is 3 or more consecutive days of 90 degree or hotter weather. While it is possible we hit 90 briefly this afternoon or Wednesday, the real 90 degree stretch would most likely begin on Thursday if it is to happen. Now, the big questions about whether or not this happens are 1) Exactly how much tropical moisture will be involved in the air mass and result in possibly widespread thunderstorm activity and thunderstorm debris cloudiness? 2) How close will a cold front to the north get to us as this front could also trigger more thunderstorm activity or debris cloudiness and temporarily kick our winds to the northeast or east? These are still the BIG unanswered questions and the computer forecast models are having difficulty wrestling with them and going back and forth with different answers it seems each run cycle. The Canadian models seem to offer at this point, the hottest and longest duration scenario with the Euro and UKMET following closely behind. The GFS American model
has the cold front closest to us and for sure is the most active with thunderstorm activity. I will take a closer look at this tomorrow morning as the potential at least exists for either a long duration heatwave lasting from perhaps Thursday into the middle of next week or some intermittent heat conditions interspersed with very strong to severe thunderstorms and perhaps one or two cooler days.

Going to be utterly disgusting from Thurs to Sun sorry ya'll I brought thus back from Mehico with me!!! Razz
