A remarkable stretch weather is about to unfold here in central New York right into the Northeast. In the big picture, a large area of high pressure down at the ground will build across southeastern Canada then situate itself from the Canadian Maritimes down along the eastern seaboard this weekend.
This type of set up will mean generally sunny and dry weather for us as we head into the end of the week and even the weekend. The winds will be light during this time so we won’t be ‘importing’ a great deal of warmer air but the strong June sun will gradually warm the air mass over us so by the weekend we should be well into the 80s.
By late in the weekend and especially early next week our winds will turn into the south so we will warm even further plus the humidity will be on the rise. By early next week we will be back up close to 90 degrees. The combination of heat and humidity should at least pop a few scattered thunderstorms come Tuesday and Wednesday of next week but we have to be honest, the chances at this point don’t look to be all that great.
