LABOR DAY WEEKEND WILL BE WARM AND HUMID AS A BERMUDA HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE DEVELOPS OFFSHORE… THERE IS A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND STORMS EARLY NEXT WEEK BUT COVERAGE IS EXPECTED TO BE LOW… WAVE HEIGHTS SUBSIDE ALONG THE COAST

It’s been twelve days since measurable rain has fallen in my neighborhood, which is one of the longest dry spells we’ve seen in quite a while. The dry spell should continue this weekend as there is no forcing mechanism in place to create rainfall, even though there is plenty of humidity around. A weakening front to our south this Saturday morning will soon dissipate as it drifts northward. This caused the clouds that we are seeing this morning. A high pressure area currently moving off the New England coast is expected to build south and east. This will cause a southeasterly flow which will bring in the higher humidity levels making it feel uncomfortable for most of us. The high will transition into a Bermuda High pressure ridge which will keep us in a warm and humid southerly flow throughout the weekend. Parts of the area may see a shower or thunderstorm on Monday (Labor Day), but chances aren’t that high that we will see rainfall… The tropical Atlantic is quiet again, but as I stated before, we are approaching the peak of hurricane season. Wave heights have subsided as Hurricane Cristobal is history. Rip currents are still possible but conditions have improved from earlier this week. So, enjoy the relatively quiet weather while it lasts and have a great holiday weekend! Thanks for reading!
