Wet, wet, wet. That’s what AccuWeather says it will be all week long, from Ohio to New York, and Pennsylvania’s caught in the middle of it all.
This week’s weather will bring trouble in the East for those with outdoor plans and projects, as well as occasional travel delays.
Showers and thunderstorms will be nearly daily visitors in the Appalachians, and along the Gulf Coast and Atlantic Seaboard. This includes cities from Miami to Atlanta, Washington, D.C., New York City and Boston, AccuWeather says.
While it will rain less than a quarter of the time any given day, some locations can be hit by multiple downpours on multiple days.
The bulk of the rainfall will occur — but will not be limited to — the afternoon and evening hours, when the greatest chance for a locally strong thunderstorm is also likely.
Fans heading to ball games in New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Pittsburgh this week should have the rain gear handy.
In the coastal areas of the Northeast, a partial flow of moist air from the Atlantic will work to keep daytime temperatures on the cool side of normal for June.
High humidity will make it hard for those who exercise or work outdoors to keep cool and dry. Evaporation rates will be low and real-feel temperatures will be elevated because of the high humidity.
And because of that high humidity and cloud cover, most nights may be warmer than average, if not a bit muggy, AccuWeather says.
This flow of moisture can also lead to flight delays due to low clouds and fog on occasion, the weather service reports.
Sunshine may be limited to a few hours or less on a daily basis for those trying to catch some rays at the beach.
There is some good news for people in the Northeast who have plans this coming weekend. Early indications are that a push of dry air will advance across the region allowing some sunshine and a drop in humidity for Saturday and Sunday.
