Happy Friday, everyone! This is Gary, with a forecast that has a continuation of our streak of sunny weather, but also a streak of rainy weather.
High pressure is still in control of our weather, so again, we'll have a bright, sunny, summer day today. It will be even hotter today than the last few days, with most spots getting into the mid-to-upper 80s for highs, and some places may crack the 90 degree mark. Humidity levels will still be reasonably comfortable.
Saturday will be the last day of the sunny streak. Then there will be a big change in the weather pattern.
A system coming up the east coast will gang up with a system coming in from the midwest as we get into the day on Sunday. We'll get some much-needed rain, and possibly a thunderstorm or two.
That new, combined weather system will hit the brakes and stall out over the eastern seaboard, including here in the northeast, bringing showers and possible thunderstorms each and every day of next week. There could be heavy downpours from time to time.
It will also be warm & muggy during that wet streak, so it will be feeling very much like the tropics.
It has been very dry around here lately, so we need the rain. And we'll be getting it! Take MAX Advantage of the sunshine over the next couple of days before the rain moves in. Have a great weekend! -Gary
