Dry Pattern Persists

Our forecast is looking more and more dire as we progress through the period. Usually, I am all for nice sunny weather, but this is starting to get a little ridiculous. The next 6-10 days will feature very little in the way of rain and clouds for that matter. Our forecast is looking like something from Palermo, Sicily or southern California during their dry season. It leaves little for me to say, except for the temperatures. Today and tomorrow we start to turn up the heat a tad. Today, Tuesday will get into the lower to mid 80's, but tomorrow we will notch up the temperatures to the mid and upper 80's and notch them up again on Thursday ahead of a cold front, with temperatures approaching 90 before the threat of a widely scattered thundershower.

I got to tell you, this front does not look to pack much of a punch at all. If anything, thunderstorms will develop near the Canadian border in northern New York and Vermont and these showers and storms will slowly weaken and fall apart as they head southeast with the cold front, as usual. I would not bet on your lawn getting a good drink of water overnight Thursday. If you do, consider yourself lucky.

After that, we enter a long period of sunny dry days with temperatures seasonable, mid and upper 70's with overnights chilling off because of the low humidity. We will start to warm up all over again early next week. We may be pushing 90 by next Tuesday!
