Coastal Storm Bringing Cool And Rainy Conditions Today

Hello everyone!

First off, let me tell you how happy it makes me to use the words “coastal storm” in a July forecast. It’s pretty fun. That’s what we’re going to get to enjoy today as low pressure has already developed and is moving NE just south of Long Island. An area of thunderstorms just south of this low is eating up some of the moisture associated with the system and thus robbing us of the potential for any really heavy rain. However, light to moderate rain will be widespread today along with a raw ENE wind. This wind will keep temps limited to the upper 50’s/low 60’s throughout the day today. After several days in the 90’s with high humidity, I’m thinking this is going to feel pretty awesome!

A cool and generally unsettled pattern is expected to dominate for the foreseeable future.

  1. I hate to disagree and be confrontational however I’m curious where it was in the 90’s with high humidity in Northern New England recently? I saw mostly 80’s and moderate humidity for the majority of the region over the last several days. I did see a few 90s in the lower Merrimack of extreme southern New Hampshire but that appeared to be the exception and not the rule.

    1. Southern New England and into NH had a heat wave last week. Maybe only the upper 80’s in Portland but it was still quite hot…

      3 days straight of 90+ in Concord, NH as well as nearly all of SNE away from the shorelines. And dew points in the upper 60’s to low 70’s felt pretty darn humid to me 🙂

      1. I apologize, my fault then, for some reason I always read your blog with Northern New England in mind. Yes, I agree that your statement certainly would describe conditions across extreme southern New Hampshire and points south through southern New England.

      2. No worries, typically I do focus on ME/NH but it was certainly pretty hot and humid here too. Mid to upper 80’s with dew points near 70? Not a “heat wave” technically but boy did it fell uncomfortable.
