Wow I wonder if we may see some global records with these extreme worldwide temperatures.  I remember reading that April was the hottest on record in southern Asia.  Do you have any global high heat record notifications, Don?  Any that are 125 or higher?

124 is the highest so far in the Northern Hemisphere.

Morning thoughts…

Today will be partly sunny and hot. High temperatures will likely reach the lower 80s along the Connecticut shore to lower 90s in parts of New Jersey and southeastern Pennsylvania. Likely high temperatures around the region include:

New York City (Central Park): 89°

Newark: 93°

Philadelphia: 92°

Noticeably cooler weather will return tomorrow.

Normals:

New York City: 30-Year: 72.8°; 15-Year: 73.6°

Newark: 30-Year: 74.2°; 15-Year: 75.1°

Philadelphia: 30-Year: 75.9°; 15-Year: 76.6°

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.

The heavy rain and time of year, 3 to even 5 degrees lower in shade near trees is possible.  You would also see a higher dew reading that reality

90.1 was my high. Pretty good for being about 3 miles from the bay. For a brief period as the sea breeze was starting, my dew point hit 75.5 with a temp of 89.2 for heat index of 100.

Another 12 hours or so of warmth before cooling down Mon (May 23) - Wed (May 25), one day warmup Thu (26) then a bit wet stormy on Fri (27) / Sat (28).  By next Sun (29) into Mon  Memorial day (30) models showing much warmer - hot potentially now.  Will see how it progresses.  More clouds today than yesterday but many on their way to 90(+).

Yep we hit 90 here at 1:15.

Stupid buzzkill with that sea breeze.

 

My high of 92 came at 2:39, temp was rising right up until the sea breeze came. Probably could’ve touched 93-94 without it.

Seemed like the sea breeze battle line was between the Southern State and Sunrise Highway for a while in Nassau/W Suffolk. Today it might surge north earlier?

Models were overdone (other than the GFS maybe) as usual with how fast/cool the sea breeze would make the N Shore. I’ve found that to be the case many times since I moved to Huntington.
