78/65 felling much less tropical today. Clear skies should get most stations outside the park to 90 today. Will post monthly precip totals next,. Warm and wet continues. ULL brings more E/ NE winds Wed - Thu before the heat is on. Lots of 88/ 89 days perhaps a 90 or two in the warmer spots Tue - Thu.
Ridge centered a bit south for the extreme potential record breaking heat till at least 7/18, perhaps during the hottest time of the year it moves over the area.. Beyond storms tomorrow (Mon 7/13) the week looks to dry things out. Heights are high most of the next two weeks with a very hot airmass over much of the east. Flow will determine extent of maxes. ECM pushes 850 temps >16 by Fri PM and near 20c next weekend so what looked like strong heat Thu is now being forecast 7/18 - 7/21 (next weekend) as cutoff over New England moves through by 7/18. Overall as the heat comes and we are away from the center of the axis which meanders towards the plains then GL, storms should continue to be consistent so no true drying out.
