Forecast: Another Sunny, Breezy Day With Temps In The 70s

This article is more than 4 years old.

Our dry June resumes this week with zero chance of any rain into the weekend.

Of course, it's Monday — and the forecast could change. But, presently, the weather looks pretty good from now until Father's Day.

The jet stream is configured such that it’s allowing lots of heat across the middle part of the country, but that heat is unable to push into our area. Of course, the sun is so strong this time of year even a Canadian air mass will become quite warm during the day. However, overnight temperatures are able to fall quickly thanks to the dry air.

Humidity won’t be a factor this week, as dew points remain in the comfortable range, and you’ll be able to keep the air conditioning off.

The summer has been forecast to be a hot one here is the northeast, but of the three warmest months of the year, it’s looking like June won’t turn out to be a blockbuster hot month, to say the least.

The lack of rain is still an issue with a bonafide official drought for most of Essex County and much of the air significantly drier than average. The new drought report comes out on Thursday, and I expect the area of concern to have expanded.

As long as the weather stays cool with air masses coming out of Canada, it’s hard for us to get any moisture.

Today: Mostly sunny, but still breezy. Highs in the mid-70s.

Tonight: Partly cloud, with a low around 53. Northwest wind around 10 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.

Tuesday: Sunny, with a high near 78. Still breezy.

Wednesday: Sunny, with a high near 79.

Thursday: Mostly sunny, with highs in the 70s to lower 80s inland.

Friday: Mostly sunny and cooler. Highs in the low to mid 70s.
