The basic science behind lake effect...
A brief taste of fall.
Tropical Storm Erika formed last night...
After a week of heat and humidity, it is starting to feel a little like fall outside with slightly below average temperatures in the 70s and dew points in the 50s. We even saw some lake effect clouds this morning and early afternoon. While I do not want to write off summer just yet, there have been reports of some leaves across the North Country beginning to change. But remember, it is still August!
Thunderstorms tonight and a drop in the humidity.
Hot weather continues today. Thunderstorms return too.
We officially made up to 85° this afternoon with mostly sunny skies. You may have noticed that is actually felt warmer than the mid 80s today, all thanks to an increase in humidity. Dew points have climbed into the mid 60s today and will continue to climb over the next couple of days.
NOAA released the latest projections on El Nino yesterday. They are calling for a strengthening of El Nino through the late fall and early winter. This could potentially have an impact on our local weather as we head into early winter.
Warmer, more humid weather is in sight!
Rainy weather makes a rare appearance and a cool show in the sky this week.
