Monday appears likely to start off unsettled, but should see improvements as the day progresses.
After parts of the region saw heavy rain on Sunday… the frontal boundary will continue to slide south and east early on Monday. That means the clouds we have to start the day, should begin exiting the area later in the day. Before that happens, don’t be surprised if we see a few areas experience a brief rain shower or thundershower.
As the clouds exit, and the sun returns… the temperatures will respond accordingly…
The humidity levels will start the day high, and likely remain that way. The frontal boundary that is pressing thru the Hudson Valley, has absolutely no cold air to work with behind the front. That means we shouldn’t expect much relief… in fact, things likely get worse.
A large area of high pressure sets up off the east coast, and that allows a west/southwest flow into the Hudson Valley. The heat and humidity will immediately begin to rise again. This sets the stage for a potential “heat wave” (3 straight days of 90°+). Tuesday might just reach 90°… but take a look at what the GFS model continues to point to for Wednesday. Possibly the hottest day of the year so far…
The details will continue to come into focus… but the story is simple… HOT. For more details, please check out the:

Billy’s Banter / Sunday Recap
Summer time weather is always very interesting. If you ever need proof of that, you need look no further than Sunday’s radar estimated rainfall map. Some of us saw less than 0.10″ of rain… and others saw over 2 inches…
You can see that the areas of heaviest rainfall appear to be NW Putnam county, and SW Sullivan county, where it seems that over 2 inches of rain fell (some areas even saw 3″+ in a short time). This led to flash flooding in eastern PA.
It’s a nightmare to track… because summer time storms have no “set course”. Storms pop up and dissipate so quickly, it’s difficult to get advance notice on days like Sunday. That’s why it’s so beneficial to use a live radar… so you can zoom in on your location, and track any storms moving in your direction.
So finally… things have been crazy busy. The Weather Munchkin turned 4… and we celebrated her birthday with a party on Sunday. It’s amazing how time goes by so fast. But it was a fantastic day, and a great weekend! Unfortunately, it has come to an end. Hope you had a great weekend everyone! Happy Monday (if that’s possible).
