Residents of the East are in for a big change by the middle of the week as warm and humid weather returns.
Meteorologist Brian Lada pointed out in this story how cool it has been across the Midwest and Northeast the last few weeks.
Things are about to change quickly across this region of the country as a pocket of cool air aloft lifts out and gets replaced by warmer and much more humid air.
The warmth has already moved into the Midwest as cities such as Minneapolis, Minn., St. Louis, Mo., and Chicago, Ill., rose well into the 80s Sunday afternoon.
Clouds and showers will linger across the mid-Atlantic on Monday with near or slightly-below normal temperatures persisting through the Northeast.
But as high pressure aloft takes control of the weather Tuesday into Wednesday, temperatures will soar well into the 80s to near 90 in some cases from the Ohio Valley and mid-Atlantic through southern Quebec and Ontario.
This push of warm air may feel like a heat wave for some following the stretch of fall-like temperatures across the Midwest and Northeast; although no records are expected to be broken during this warmup.
Below is the forecasted temperature trend across selected cities:
|New York City||82||87||89|
Not only will temperatures be on the rise during this shift in weather patterns, but so will the humidity.
Higher humidity accompanying the warmer temperatures will make the AccuWeather.com RealFeel® higher than the actual temperature.
RealFeel® temperatures will soar well into the 90s by Tuesday afternoon across Philadelphia, Pa., Washington D.C., Richmond, Va., and State College, Pa.
100 degree plus RealFeel® temperatures are expected from near Paducah, Ky., to Memphis, Tenn.
By late week, a cold front will be swinging southward from Canada, taking aim at the Great Lakes region.
It is still unclear of the exact timing and strength of this front, but it could deliver another shot of unseasonably cool air to the Midwest and Northeast.
