Ah, the Bermuda High has extended its reach to the Northeast and that's bringing some nice, juicy, tropical air to New York for the first half of the week. The dew point temperature is expected to stay in the upper 60s or lower 70s through Wednesday. With daily highs in the 90s we've got the perfect conditions for impressive armpit stains over the next few days. A heat advisory is also in effect for today and tomorrow. The beaches may catch a bit of a break tomorrow if the sea breeze kicks in.

Unbeknownst to the Bermuda High, a cold front is slowly moving in from the north. The front should begin to affect our weather sometime Wednesday, when scattered showers or thunderstorms become possible. Rain is more than welcome as we've had less than half the normal amount so far this month. Across the country this is the worst drought since 1988 with more than half of the lower 48 states under drought conditions

Any rain should be over when cooler, drier air moves in on Thursday. Thursday's high is expected to be a seasonable 85 degrees. Friday or more likely Saturday may turn out to be the coldest day of the month. That's not saying much since every day so far this July has been warmer than normal, but highs are currently expected to be in the mid 80s and lows in the 60s. Sunday might be a degree or two warmer under mostly sunny skies.
