Close to records by the end of the week

The weather blog for the next 5-7 days is likely to remain very light on material as the forecast will only have two general themes. These themes being dry weather and warming temperatures. This morning we start the day with cold readings in the low 30s to 40s alongside mostly clear skies. Southwest to northwest winds average 5-10 mph, so wind chill is not a major factor. Nevertheless, you should consider banding together.

The afternoon will bring plenty of sunshine, highs in the upper 60s to mid 70s, and 5-10 mph northwesterly breezes. All day will stay dry, so be sure to keep these plants watered and healthy with a little hand watering. By the way, those readings that should be in the 70s today are about 5-8 degrees above average for this time of year.

On Tuesday, we’ll rinse and repeat today’s forecast for tomorrow. The sun remains present throughout with temperatures warming up in the low to mid 70s and even high 70s closer to the St. Lawrence River valley. The heat and the sun will accompany an anticyclonic system at the start towards our east.

At the start of an anticyclonic system, another will set in for the end of the week. The high pressure emerging from the mid-Atlantic will help pump out more heat, sunshine AND moisture. Not only will we get hotter Thursday through Saturday with near-record heat, but we’ll feel pretty sticky with the higher humidity. Moral of the story: prepare the summer wardrobe and keep it handy throughout the coming weekend. The next chance of precipitation will not occur until Sunday.
