Near Seasonable Temperatures on the Way; and Lower Humidity


Some of us are asking, when is the humid air going to quit? Or if this summer is going to be brutal. That depends on location. Since the past couple of weeks, the air has been very humid along the East Coast due to tropical disturbances pumping up moisture from the south.

That will remain the case through the rest of the weekend. However, we are looking at an area of low pressure moving in during the first week of June, and that will keep temperatures seasonable and the humidity won’t be coming up from the south anymore, at least not . The expected storminess will keep any sunshine to a minimum.

We can expect near normal temperatures as a result of cooling showers and thunderstorms. Areas where the sun peeks through the clouds is where we could be slightly above normal temperature-wise.

Dewpoints will drop behind this system after it departs. Dewpoints will be higher down in Florida with much muggier air, but will be on the normal side for this time of year across the Southeast.

This is the only relief in the near future for many of us in the Southeast. Coastal areas will remain muggy and is normal for this time of year.
