Cooler Conditions Prevail This Weekend

Yes it’s June and it will naturally feel warm and humid, however it could be way worse. But what we are dodging into the middle of this month is the extreme heat.

It will be in the upper 50s to low 60s for morning lows, and it will be hard to touch 80F in some spots for daytime highs.


This trend will continue into the 15th, before the cooler pattern “stalls” and becomes more seasonally average. Below is the departure from average on the GEFS on the morning of the 15th. It still looks like the west could be baking in a heat wave still.

This would mean potentially an extension of the cooler and stormier pattern.

Around the 18th of the month it looks like the ensemble starts to get confused on a potential shift from western trough to eastern ridge. This would mean a sharp increase in temperatures for the East Coast just in time for the start of official summer.

There is no pronounced trough or ridge in the long-range. Around the 19th, it becomes unclear if there will be an East Coast heatwave or not. For night now, it just looks seasonally average, and we’ll keep a look out for any signs of heatwaves.
