Summer-Like Temps Expected By End of Week - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Summer-Like Temps Expected By End of Week

Posted:

The first real heat wave of the season is currently impacting the Southern Plains. Temperatures may exceed 110 degrees in parts of Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. Some of that heat will arrive to the eastern shore by Thursday.

A stalled out boundary is currently situated south of the region keeping Delmarva cooler and drier with highs in the 60s and 70s. That will soon change because the boundary is expected to lift northward as a warm front by Wednesday evening and begin the warming trend.

Thursday afternoon highs will likely reach 80 degrees, if not go a little above that. High pressure off the coast will help pump in warm and moist air from the southern states where temperatures are already in the 90s today.

Friday and Saturday look to be the warmest and most uncomfortable days of the next several. Highs will likely reach the mid to *perhaps* upper 80s in some spots. Also, dew points are expected to reach the lower and middle 60s which means it will feel quite humid (sticky). Temperatures at the beaches will be a bit cooler in the mid and upper 70s. The attached image (courtesy of Accuweather pro) is the European models forecast high temperatures for Saturday, and they indicate temperatures well into the 80s along the east.

Sky conditions will remain partly cloudy Wednesday through Friday before going mostly cloudy on Saturday. Rain chances will remain low until overnight Saturday and during the day on Sunday when scattered showers and even thunderstorms are possible with the passage of a cold front.

By definition, this is not an actual heat wave, but it could end up being the warmest temperatures we have experienced so far in 2014 and it will sure be a little taste of summer.
