  1. Was there a period where JFK was using hourly obs and had no inter hour (low/highs) earlier this month and part of June? I noticed on the website i follow until last Thu or Fri, it was not reporting the 6 hour inter hour maxes and mins. The persistent and dominant southerly flow this season the main culprit.
  2. A few slow moving rains and totals will be higher, locally
  3. 74 / 67 looks like 4 days of clouds got in the way, rain / storm chances each day and a 4 day total that should see a widespread >1-3 inches and higher in some spots. Atlantic ridge keeping a hung out boundary / front nearby with numerous popup slow moving showers/rain. Some breaks in the clouds Tue could push it near 90 but looks cloudy and humid. Rain focus on Mon PM - night / Wed. Beyond there as we head into this weekend Fri (7/26) drier but still wouldnt think we have a completely dry weekend. Hotter look once to the 29th as more stronger heat from the west pushes north and east. Onshore component / southerly flow keeps it humid with rain chances - not a dry pattern.

  5. 88 /66 In/out of clouds Wind: 173° (S)
  6. Has the ridge north look / onshore component with stronger heat north and inland initially in day 7 - 10. Could be continued somewhat stagnant flow Humid/Hot and ran chances. Atlantic ridge continues to stay anchored and expand in periods. Ridge pushing east of HI has weaker trough into the or off of the WC.
  7. 77 / 67 (dewpoints rising).. Cleared from yesterday, what will likely be the driest, and warmest day of the next 5. Upper 80s to low 90s today in the warm spots. Scattered showers possible later. Week looks to include showers/storms chances each day,very humid and remain mostly cloudy, keeping temps in the 80s/70s most days. Drier but still not completely by the weekend as the ridge builds north of us. Warmer - hotter by 29th. Western heat building in north and east, onshore flow keeps the hottest inland as it looks now, but an overall hotter look from the 29th and beyond.
