Too much cloud coverage for 90 today and front passes through early Monday. 

Fri-Sun will likely yield 95+ readings, can't rule out 100 for Sat or Sun in the hottest spots. 

Low moving through lets see if we can get some late PM sun and maxes, doubtful but maybe closer especially into C/S-NJ

We may have a MCS to track for Friday night along the leading edge of the 80 degree dewpoint surge.

The ultimate nightmare would be a derecho knocking out power the night before the 2 hottest days of the summer. At least Manhattan shouldn't have any problems.

They are pretty hard to predict in advance and very rare around here. I would actually be the most worried in NYC for equipment overload failures.

the good news there is that it's a Saturday and most offices are vacant....

If the HRDPS is correct I would probably be just a hair to far south to get in on the main core but only a slight shift north/south can make a big difference at this range on who gets what and how bad. It should be interesting to track over the next 24 hours.

I think its been mentioned but the extreme dew points make it a lot harder for AC equipment to cool a home and therefore can lead to more power usage. 100/60 will take less energy to cool than 100/80.

Rapidly spiked to 86F here with some breaks of sun in the past hour. If we continue occasional breaks, 850s definitely support 90. But we'll probably fall short.
