High pressure will slowly move south over New England and Connecticut Sunday and early next week with plenty of sun, low humidity and a gradual warming trend. By the middle of next week the high will move off the mid-Atlantic Coast enhancing the warm-up as a southwest flow will transport very warm to hot humid air-mass over the northeast. Temperatures could potentially reach 90 degrees by next Wednesday and or Thursday, which could be the first time since July 23rd that we hit the 90 degree mark. A cold front will cross the region next Friday with the chance for a few thunderstorms, effectively ending the high heat and humidity just in time for the Labor Day Holiday Weekend.
Tropical Depression # 4 has formed near the Bahamas, expected to become a tropical storm on Sunday
Tropical Depression # 4 has formed over the Turks and Caicos and is forecasted to move over portions of the Bahamas and become a tropical storm by Sunday which will be named Cristobal. This system is forecasted to move northwest to north toward the Carolina Coast and then curve northeast toward the end of next week and the holiday weekend. This tropical system will come very close to the east coast next week and bears watching; as any deviation from the storm track could impact coastal New England and possibly Connecticut. Even if the storm curves out sea, high surf and dangerous rip currents are likely to affect the Southern New England Coastline from Thursday through at least the first part the Labor Day Weekend.
