Heatwave

Western New Jersey had it’s first (and hopefully last) official heat wave this summer. What’s that you ask? “Dave it’s been plenty hot this summer!” Yes it has but to have an official heatwave you need three (3) days or more of high temperatures at 90 or above. We had that pleasure Saturday thru yesterday. I don’t think (hope) we get there today so the streak will be over. Even if it’s not as hot the humidity will make up for it in the next few days

While a scattered afternoon or evening thunderstorm is possible today in some spots, more frequent thundershowers are possible starting Thursday afternoon into Friday as a cold front approaches. The above map show the potential rain for our area through Saturday morning. We do need the rain – most areas have not received substantial rain in 7 days or more.

When the above cold front approaches our area it may not pass through right away and instead stall of the area. This will keep the humidity and chances for rain into at least Friday.
