.DISCUSSION...
High pressure at the surface and aloft will remain parked over
the region through the next several days, providing dry
conditions and continued above normal temperatures. Tropical
Storm Jose will remain nearly stationary south of Cape Cod, and
will gradually weaken over the next few days with no impacts for
eastern New York and western New England. Temperatures could
reach record high levels Sunday into Monday, as the ridge
strengthens overhead.

RH values will drop from the 90s this morning to 30-50 percent
this afternoon, lowest west of the Hudson Valley. Warmth and
absolute humidity will increase for the weekend, but relative
humidity will bottom out around 40-50 percent during the
afternoons. Highs in the 80s will be common, possibly near 90 in
the warmest spots on Sunday.

Winds today will be from the north at 5 to 15 mph with some
higher gusts, highest over western New England, the mid-Hudson
Valley, and higher elevations. Winds over the weekend will be
from the north to northwest at 10 mph or less.
