The dog days of summer have arrived, as we sit in a generally quiet pattern for another week. Can you believe that August is just a few days away? We have moved past our climatological peak for maximum high temperatures, and the amount of daylight we lose each day continues to increase. The march toward fall has begun.
This will be a quick post, as I am hoping to post another piece today that looks at New England tropical climatology.
Both today and tomorrow look to be similar days, with humid conditions and inland temperatures approaching 90 degrees. In fact, we may see the start of another heat wave for much of Connecticut as we start the week. There will be rain chances however. Both days will bring the risk of showers and thunderstorms. As we saw yesterday, some of those storms may be strong to (isolated) severe.
The middle of the week looks to remain warm, with Tuesday's temperatures topping 90 again inland. Wednesday may be a bit of a transition day, as the heat relents a little due to the passage of a cold front, but overall things look relatively similar with warm conditions and shower/storm chances.
The end of the week and first weekend of August is looks fine with now, with continued warm conditions and more shower/storm chances that seem relatively low.
Monday: Mostly sunny and warm, with increasing clouds and a chance for thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. Highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. Chance of rain 50%.
Tuesday: Partly sunny and warm. Highs in the upper 80s to low 90s.
Wednesday: Partly sunny with a chance of showers and storms. Highs in the mid to upper 80s. Chance of rain 50%.
Thursday: Partly sunny with a chance of showers and storms. Highs in the low to mid 80s. Chance of rain 30%.
Friday: Partly sunny and warm. Highs in the low to mid 80s.
Saturday: Partly sunny. Highs in the mid to upper 80s.
Sunday: Partly sunny. Highs in the mid to upper 80s.
