Good morning! Happy Friday!
Early bird commuters Friday morning find stubborn showers and clouds leftover from Thursday still lingering on. By mid to late morning, however, sunshine returns with Ma Nature cranking up the heat and humidity over the weekend.
Increasing sunshine Friday will have you wanting sunglasses for any lunchtime or post-work errands. Morning showers and clouds push south, steered by a cold front. That front leaves us with a light northwesterly wind of 5-10 mph and a comfortable afternoon spent in the 70s. Tonight, mostly clear. Mid 40s to low 50s.
Saturday brings ample sunshine with thin, high clouds scooting through during the afternoon. The temp rebounds into the upper 70s to low 80s with a light and variable wind. Saturday night, clouds leftover from decaying convection the west should keep us a bit milder, in the upper 50s to low 60s.
Sunday, heat and humidity make their return. The temp soars into the mid 80s, with some broad valleys creeping past that into the upper 80s or even nearing 90 degrees. Late afternoon dew point temperatures inch past the mid 60s and close in on 70 degrees. It’s a steamy day that starts with sun, but ends with increasing clouds. It’s a great excuse for taking Dad to hit up his favorite swimming hole for Father’s Day. Towards sunset, some showers and thunderstorms may bubble up ahead of an approaching cold front over northern New York and northern Vermont. Most should stay rainfree, however, until Monday. Sunday night, regardless, brings some very uncomfortable sleeping weather with a low hovering near 70 degrees.
Monday, expect scattered showers and thunderstorms; some may even be strong to severe. Periods of (needed) heavy rain should be anticipated with a still very muggy, warm feeling in the air. Low 80s. By Tuesday, rain clears out from north to south. Mid 70s. Riding then keeps us dry and quiet through midweek as thermometers revisit the low 80s.
Have a great day and an even better weekend!
