  1. Memorial Day may make a run on 90° in the usual warm spots.
  2. Yeah, the extension of the ridge into SE Canada has been pushing extreme severe storms further north than usual for this time of year.
  3. The benchmark for early June heat in our area was 2011 when the Newark suburbs hit 103°.

  4. Memorial Day weekend is on track to follow the post 15-16 super El Niño script. At least one day with rainfall. Best chance for rain this year appears to be on Saturday with improvement by Sunday or Monday.

  5. The reason is that models struggle with closed lows in these blocky patterns. They all seem to agree on rain from Friday into Saturday. The 12z Euro gets the front to our east by later Saturday. So a backloaded Memorial Day weekend with Sunday and Monday better than Friday and Saturday.
  6. This May is just an extension of recent summers since 2018 with record blocking in SE Canada. Over the top warm ups are common in this pattern like we saw a few weeks ago with the record heat in Northern New England. Then we get intervals with the ridge flattening out like this past weekend. So places away from the sea breeze make a run on record highs. But the deep westerly flow heat events that make it to JFK like we saw from 2010 to 2013 are absent. Then there is the occasional cutoff low getting stuck underneath the block. So a fairly predictable pattern. May 2022 Summers since 2018
  7. The actual SSTs are still In the upper 50s which will give you a very cool sea breeze. So around 20° colder than the recent summers with SSTs pushing 80° at times. But the departures relative to average are the warmest on record for this time year in the North Atlantic.
  8. Yeah, the expansion of the ridge into New England allows warmer S to W flow away from the immediate shore. We have the cooler onshore flow influence. It’s exaggerated in May since the SSTs are still so cold. https://mesonet.agron.iastate.edu/plotting/auto/?_wait=no&q=71&network=VT_ASOS&zstation=BTV&year=2022&month=5&units=MPH&_r=t&dpi=100&_fmt=png
  9. These over the top type warm ups have become very common in recent years. It has allowed Concord, New Hampshire to pull ahead of Newark for the the first 90° day of the year. The average first 90° of the season at Concord has moved up from June 5th in 1981 to May 17th in 2022. Newark has remained nearly unchanged at May 21st in 1981 and May 20th in 2022.
  10. The dew points have been running above average with the persistent onshore flow. It has also kept our departures cooler than New England. The stronger high pressure to our north has allowed for higher departures in New England. This has become a common theme in recent years with more over the top warmth. The forecast for the rest of this month is similar. https://mesonet.agron.iastate.edu/plotting/auto/?_wait=no&q=76&network=NY_ASOS&station=JFK&season=may&varname=dwpf&year=1893&w=bar&hours=0-23&_r=t&dpi=100&_fmt=png Warmer in New England this month BTV….+4.2 BDL….+3.7 EWR….+2.1……further inland from the marine influence near the coast NYC….+0.3 LGA….-0.1…..cool easterly flow off the Long Island sound Forecast for the rest of the month more of the same
  11. This month is on track to finish as one of the most persistent onshore flow Mays. High pressure has been dominating in New England all month. The warm up this weekend favored areas away from immediate sea breeze for the highest temperatures. This week will feature a return of high pressure to our north and easterly flow. Next surge of warmth looks to be on track for around Memorial Day. It could be an over the top warm up with higher temperatures in New England. But small details like that are tough to work out too far in advance. Models have a round of blocking in early June. So the next warm up at the end of May will get pushback from high pressure to our north again. Similar to what we have been experiencing recently. May pressure pattern Forecasts into early June
  12. The hottest parts of the region yesterday were Philly, NNJ, and Queens all reaching 95°+. Models did very well showing the maximum temperatures for the whole area in NJ. Some models did better showing the 90° readings near ISP. Most struggled with the heat in Central Queens showing too much cooling sea breeze in Corona, Queens. The wind forecast at EWR was also very hard for the models to resolve. We were discussing this with Forky earlier in the thread. Models show too much onshore flow at Newark. All the models did very well showing the 60s to low 70s for the South Shore beaches. More struggles for the NYC high temperature. This is a result of the tree growth blocking the sensor. But the raw model guidance doesn’t know that this is the case. So the NWS and several TV outlets went for a high of 93° which verified as 90°. This is in line with some of my posts in the climate change thread. The trees can shave off around 3° from the highs from what they should be out in the open in an area like the Great Lawn. Sometimes the difference can be a little higher or a little lower. This is probably a result of the moisture content in the vegetation.

  13. That’s a result of the ASOS being improperly located under dense vegetation. It’s common for NYC to try and play catch up when the sun dries wet morning vegetation. But NYC ultimately fell 3° short of the NWS official forecast high of 93°. I don’t think that the NWS applies any deep shade correction to their forecast for NYC. That’s why they usually do much better with their forecasts for the other sites than Central Park.

  14. Elongation of the ridge to the east of New England in recent years has been causing more frequent onshore flow. Notice how much flatter the ridge was back in May 1996. So it allowed a deep westerly flow from the Midwest right out across Long Island.
  15. The heat index at Newark today was the highest in May since 1996. Came within a few degrees of the all-time highest May record of 102°. https://mesonet.agron.iastate.edu/plotting/auto/?_wait=no&q=155&network=NJ_ASOS&zstation=EWR&var=max_feel&threshold=100&hour=12&sdate=2000%2F01%2F01&edate=2000%2F12%2F31&month=may&_r=t&dpi=100&_fmt=png
  16. Wantagh just dropped from 85° to 70° in 1 hour. https://www2.nysmesonet.org/weather/meteogram#network=nysm&stid=want
  17. 65° along the South Shore beaches with the sea breeze after a high of 71°. https://mesowest.utah.edu/cgi-bin/droman/meso_base_dyn.cgi?stn=F3143&unit=0&timetype=GMT
  18. The 71° dewpoint at SMQ could be the earliest on record. It’s currently the 4th highest on record for the month of May. Looks like their May record is 74°.

  20. With the dewpoint pooling along the sea breeze front today, we may be able to approach the highest dewpoint records for May.
  21. The dense fog this morning was predicted by the models and we were discussing it. The HRRR forecast from yesterday is below showing the dense fog for this morning.
  22. Starting the day with dense fog around the area. So a continuation of the marine influence theme. The higher dewpoints will help to boost the heat indices.
  23. This was the heaviest downpour of the whole year so far here in SW Suffolk. But the winds were light. Best looking MCS structure in a while.
  24. Impressive looking warned cell SW of Reading.
  25. The RGEM looks more realistic into the same areas that have the tornado watch.
