After Tuesday’s Flooding Storms.. Perfect Weather Settles Into Northeast, Not So For Southeast!

Written by on August 14, 2013 in United States of America with 0 Comments

After a day of heavy, flooding, thundery rains which rattled through the New York to Washington corridor during Tuesday morning and a second batch this evening with even tornado threats around the Philadelphia area, the front clears out. Wednesday all the way through the rest of this week and the upcoming weekend looks stunning with a LOT of sunshine, low humidity and really it couldn’t get much better than this for folks throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.

Just look at this forecast off the Weather Bug App for New York City. These kind’s of temps, low humidity and wall the wall sunshine will be enjoyed throughout the region’s Big Cities all the way down to DC.


Here’s the GFS surface chart Tuesday through Saturday but this perfect weather looks to last right through the weekend.

Note the front gets stuck over a region already saturated… I’m afraid the rains just keep on coming and we are looking at an additional 3-6 inches of rain over the next 5-7 days and these rains may get enhanced by a tropical low which could push north through the Gulf and impact this weekend. Development looks unlikely but this could be an additional problem for the Southeast for sure.

Below is the QPF and ECMWF rainfall totals through the next 7 days.

Los Angeles Records Longest Sub 80F August Stretch On Record!

If you live in Southern California and particularly the Los Angeles Basin, you’ll be right to think it’s be darn cool of late. Los Angeles has in fact failed to record a single 80 since July 27 which is the 5th longest July-August stretch on record and the most in August on record. Average high at this time of year is 84.

Through the first 13 days of August the temperature is running a full 4.6 degrees below normal.

The chill is all thanks to a strong ONSHORE flow which brings in cool Pacific air along with cloud and fog.
