Northeast US weather

Drier air to reach the Northeast this weekend

Early morning fog is not typical in mid to late June. The nights are shortest at this time of year, so there is less time for the temperature to drop to the saturation point. However, in wet weather patterns things can be different. Such was the case in Central Pennsylvania this morning. More damp weather is on the way from the Ohio Valley to the mid-Atlantic states. The first map below shows showers and thunderstorms from Indiana to southern New England tomorrow (Thursday) night.


It appears that a low pressure area forming in the Northeast Thursday night and Friday will cause heavy showers and thunderstorms as it moves through. However, the storm looks strong enough to pull drier air in behind it just in time for the weekend. The computer models are predicting dry weather for both Saturday and Sunday in the Middle and North Atlantic states.


It now appears that a new showery regime could take over for at least a few days early next week. Since few people want to hear about that now, I will leave that information out of this report.
