Quick and easy today, first heatwave of the year is here! YAY! NOT! at least in my opinion – I hate the heat. BUT for those who like it, enjoy. We have a weakening PDO, and with that we get our classic heatwave signature… at least for a few days. Not widespread 100’s, but into high 80’s/low low 90’s.

Trough dives into the W, forces heights to rise in the E. To get into high 90’s/100’s we would like to see the 585 line reach the area, and although we will not see that, the 582 line should make it well N of Westchester, so low 90’s will be widespread. 588 line will reach into DC, so high 90’s/100° will be pushing it into the Delmarva.

This is accompanied by these sfc temps:

Another bowling ball comes through though by the weekend, and knocks these temps down. Let’s see if we can muster 3 days of >90° and call this our first heatwave of the year!

ENJOY the night!
