Storms and high humidity will no longer be absent from New York City as the new week starts and June gives way to July.
As the high pressure that kept New York City dry and comfortable this weekend departs, the door will open for an uptick in humidity on Monday as temperatures once again rise to the lower to middle 80s.
The warmth will help fuel spotty thunderstorms in far northwestern New Jersey and the Hudson Valley, outside of I-84, in the afternoon and evening.
Dry weather will still hold in the five boroughs and adjacent suburbs, preventing any interruptions to the game at Yankee Stadium between the Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays Monday evening.
The warmth and humidity will continue to build Tuesday through Wednesday, causing the city to come close to recording its first 90-degree day of the year.
While temperatures may fall short of that feat, AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures will soar well above the 90-degree mark and will even flirt with the century mark. Such heat will prove to be challenge for those with respiratory issues and those engaging in manual labor.
The tropical steambath will also help fuel showers and thunderstorms Wednesday, mainly in the afternoon, and Thursday as a cold front approaches.
The front may be slow to clear the Northeast coast, potentially leading to a lingering and disruptive shower or thunderstorm for Independence Day.
The one benefit of the front will be to steer any tropical system that develops off the Southeast coast away from the Northeast.
Darby will continue to deliver locally heavy rain, gusty winds and rough surf to Hawaii into early Monday. But the tropical storm will provide long-term benefits.
Gusty thunderstorms will target the northeastern United States on Monday, but will fail to sweep away the baking heat wave gripping the region.
Dangerous heat will surge northward and send temperatures soaring across the northwestern United States during the final week of July.
Downpours will spread from the lower Mississippi Valley to eastern and central Texas early this week, delivering needed rain but raising the concern for flash flooding.
With the heat of summer comes many unwelcomed pests, including mosquitoes, ants, fruit flies, wasps and stink bugs, into outdoor spaces and homes.
