Feeling Like Fall for the Northeast This Weekend

30 Jul 2021, 2:45 pm

A strong low pressure system forming up in Canada will allow for some much cooler and less humid air to build across the Northeast this weekend. A few record low temperatures are in jeopardy of being broken!

Set-Up

The cold front that brought the severe storms to the Great Lakes and Midwest late Wednesday and early Thursday also brought severe storms and tornadoes to the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic yesterday afternoon. The front is now well offshore in the Atlantic and the upper low part of the system is helping to drive in cooler air.

Forecast

Check out the forecast for the highs and lows across the Northeast this weekend. Everyone will be well below normal for this time of July.

 

Low temperatures will fall into the 50s for some! It may even feel a little chilly outside in the morning, perfect for leaving the windows open and getting some natural air conditioning and fresh air into your home at night.

Dew Point Forecast

The dew point forecast is showing very dry air arriving Saturday morning. To have dew points in the 40s for late July is quite unusual and it will be very noticeable. The dry air in place will also help reinforce the cooler temperatures, as dry air heats and cools much more quickly than humid air.

Record Low Potential

Several cities could get very close to tying or breaking record lows Saturday morning. Some of these record lows go back to the 1950s!

If you’re a fan of the cooler weather, you’re in luck this week. Temperatures will generally be below average  by at least a few degrees, but Saturday will be the coolest day of the week in both the morning and afternoon.

The Northeast will for the most part start out August with at or below average temperatures. The northern tier of New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine will likely be above average.

Keep checking back with WeatherNation for more updates on the taste of Fall for the Northeast.
