First heatwave of Summer 2016 will commence today. We will have at least three days of high temperatures at or above 90. To make it truly summer-like we will have healthy dose of humidity thrown in for good measure. That is one thing that has thankfully been somewhat reasonable this warm weather season so far. When it’s been warm the humidity has been reasonable.

Along with the heat and humidity will be summertime chances of late day thundershowers. I expect them to be quite isolated today but more numerous on Thursday and almost likely on Friday.

7day

And for those sensitive Wednesday will feature a code Orange air quality alert for western new jersey. This mean air pollution concentrations may become unhealthy for those sensitive.
