Rain and cooler air worked in for the last few days across the northeast, but as we head into the second week of August, the humidity and heat is back for the northeast!

Tuesday

Heat really starts to peak on Tuesday into Wednesday, but it is the humidity in combination with the hot temperatures that will lead to the oppressive feel. We can expect heat index values anywhere from 5-10° above the actual temperature. Temps through the middle and end of next week will be in the upper 80s and 90s with dew points in the 60s and 70s.

Dew Points

Dew points will sit in the 60s and 70s through the mid-Atlantic states, leading to the high heat indexes. This is where we start to get into the uncomfortable and oppressive categories.

Outlook

The extended outlooks into the rest of August show moderate confidence of above average temperatures for the northeast. For more on the heat in the northeast, join WeatherNation for your eastern regional forecast :10 after the hour.
