Friday July 6 2018
The weather this morning is very uncomfortable and it’s all thanks to high dew points in the mid to upper 70s. It has already sparked a few thundershowers on Delmarva and near Washington. The main line of rain will be moving from the mountains through our region late morning to early afternoon. While no severe break outs are expected, there may be some strong boomers and a noticeable drop in humidity. You should feel that improvement this afternoon.
This weekend should be great with dry weather and lower temperatures. Heat will come back next week and we could be in for another heat wave by next weekend.
The tropics have spawned a storm that is small and quickly ramped up overnight. Hurricane Beryl is the first of its kind in the Atlantic this season with winds of 75 mph. This is not expected to hold that intensity as it should weaken heading into the Caribbean. A brief update is below.

The humidity is the main issue this morning. Dew Point Temperatures are in the mid to upper 70s making it very uncomfortable.
After the rain, temperatures may remain hot… but the drop in humidity is the first signal of improvement we will notice.
Afternoon Dew Point (This Is The RELIEF Factor)
You will feel the change in the air mass with dew points falling through the 60s and into the 50s this afternoon. Notice the sticky 70s remain in southern Maryland. That region will feel the improvement by tonight.
This morning the radar is active. A few pop up thundershowers on Delmarva and near Washington. The main line in the mountains is heading our way and will be moving through late morning to early afternoon.

Weekend Improvement: Highs in the lower to middle 80s and lows in the 60s with lower humidity. Het returns next week and more likely sustained next weekend.
This was a little surprise as the quick spin up formed yesterday and quickly developed. This is a small system and will not hold long as it is fighting many elements to weaken it back to a tropical storm. Recently I wrote about three reasons that we will have low tropical activity in the Atlantic. I still believe that, but some systems will still try to get going. The more likely regions will be the northeastern Gulf of Mexico and off of the US East Coast.
