    ...- ANTHONY MACARI, STORM TEAM 10
    So far, September has been a comfortable month, great for outdoor activity! Part of that has been the shortage of rain. September rainfall so far this month. Providence has only recorded just over a half inch of rain so far in the first half of the month. Last September, nearly 8 inches of rain fell, which was the 7th highest amount for the month on record. Even 2017 recorded a respectable amount of rain, just shy of the average of 3. 92". Rainfall by month since June.

    We've been spared so far this hurricane season with any direct impacts from tropical weather systems. The latest named storm, "Humberto", is forecast to strengthen into a Category 2 hurricane as it makes a right hand turn from the southeast coast of the U. S. A. this week. It may impact Bermuda late Wednesday night, early Thursday morning as it makes its closest approach there.

  • The formation of frost and how it affects EEE

    ...- ANTHONY MACARI
    Summer has yet to officially end, and yet the threat of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) already has some folks clamoring for a good frost. However, frost alone may not be the complete answer to eradicating mosquitoes that are infected with EEE. First, let's talk about what frost is. Frost forms when water vapor in the air is frozen onto a surface where the temperatures is at or below freezing. Temperature is key in these types of situations.

    Fall won't officially begin until Monday, September 23, the day of the Autumnal Equinox, but as far as meteorologists are concerned, summer is already in the books. For stat-keeping purposes, meteorologists define the summer season as the three-month period of June, July, and August, or June 1st through August 31st. This summer, overall rainfall was 10. 51", or just 0. 02" below average. Rainfall this summer compared to average. We can dig a little bit deeper than that, though.

    We're getting in to the active part of Hurricane Season now, with Tropical Storm Dorian poised to strengthen to hurricane status this week as it enters the Caribbean. Meanwhile, "Invest 98-L" east of Florida is expected to become a tropical or subtropical storm as it moves parallel to the Eastern Seaboard. While it's expected to stay offshore as of this writing, surf may peak 6-8 feet on south and east facing Atlantic Ocean beaches of Southern New England midweek.

  • ...- R.J. Heim
    Two areas of tropical weather are brewing in the Atlantic Basin this weekend. "Invest 98-L" east of Florida Saturday night is expected to strengthen over the next few days as it moves northeastward, paralleling the Eastern Seaboard. As it does, it may develop tropical characteristics as it moves closer to Southern New England. However, all of the Guidance Models at this time keep the system offshore, which would just mean the possibility of increased surf here.
  • Comfortable air in place now, but eyes are on the tropics

    ...- Anthony Macari, Storm Team 10
    We've enjoyed a beautiful and fall-like start to our Saturday, with temperatures in the upper 50s and low 60s and dew points in the 40s and 50s. The best part? Dew Points won't be changing too much in the coming days. While the air warms into the 70s each day until Wednesday, the air will feel comfortable until then. Dew Points remain steady. However, it won't be dry 100% of the time. Our next chance for showers comes Sunday morning.

    The National Hurricane Center is monitoring two tropical weather systems that have a strong potential of developing into named storms over the next couple of days. While "Chantal" is fizzling in the far North Atlantic, Invest 98 near Florida, and Invest 99 east of the Leeward Islands are expected to develop into either "Dorian" or "Erin" at some point either through the weekend or early next week. Historically, we're entering into the active part of Hurricane Season.

  • ...- R.J. Heim
    There may be a few showers, possibly a thunderstorm, through early Friday morning as a cooler drier air mass works in to Southern New England. High Dew Point Temperatures in the 70's indicating very sticky air will be replaced by values in the 50's, which is much more comfortable, as we go deeper into the weekend. We're not done with Summer just yet, even though the 'unofficial' end of the season is coming the weekend after this one with Labor Day. Higher heat and humidity will return midweek.

  • Thunderstorms possible Monday afternoon in hot and muggy air

    ...- Anthony Macari, Storm Team 10
    Hot and muggy days provide plenty of fuel for thunderstorms to develop, and that will be the case Monday in Southern New England. High temperatures today reach the low 90s, which was the first time in Providence this month; though in July, we hit the 90s for the last four days of the month - our most recent heat wave. A Heat Advisory continues for some of our region through Monday evening. Temperatures reached the low 90s for the first time this month.

    In the high Dew Point Temperature air (low-mid 70's), there's a lot of juice in the atmosphere, fuel for thunderstorms, that only need a little kick, a ripple in the atmosphere, to produce the up and down motions necessary for their development. As fronts approach, and a few push through, Southern New England this week, there are chances of thunderstorms, some of which reach 'Severe' criteria, bringing gusty winds, frequent lightning, and sometimes hail.
  • Extended stay for heat and humidity

    August is about half over, and so far, we have not recorded a day in the 90s! Providence came close, reaching 89 degrees on August 4th, but we have to go back to July 31st for our last day in the 90s, when it was 92 degrees. That was also part of a heat wave that went back to July 28th. So far, we have avoided that, but not for much longer. While a heat wave may not be in the cards, 90s will soon return.

    We've enjoyed a few days of low humidity across Southern New England, but all that will start to change later Monday as our next system moves towards the region. Dew points will rise as the cold front approaches. Dew points will start to climb Monday night and throughout Tuesday, leading to a sticky feel to the air. As a cold front sags south later Tuesday, it will interact with the extra moisture in the atmosphere. This will lead to some periods of downpours and thunderstorms.

  • ...- R.J. HEIM, STORM TEAM 10
    After a nearly unheard of low-humidity August weekend, the air slowly becomes more sticky Monday. For the most part, any rain showers are expected to stay away from Southern New England until Tuesday afternoon or evening. That's when another cold front will be pressing down on the region. As it bumps into the higher humidity air that will be in place at that time, that will wring out the atmosphere with the potential for thunderstorms and heavy downpours.
  • Increased likelihood of hurricanes in updated NOAA forecast

    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released its updated hurricane season forecast Thursday, and it calls for an increased chance of an above-normal hurricane season.

    We're in a warm and muggy air mass on this Wednesday afternoon, which is a good environment for thunderstorms to develop. Storm Team 10 has issued a Weather Alert Day with the brewing storms.

  • Despite record July, this year lags behind 2018's heat and humidity

    ...- Anthony Macari, Storm Team 10
    With June and July already over, August is the last month of our traditional Southern New England summer. While we've received breaks from the heat and humidity at times, the humidity came back in full-force on Tuesday. The all-important question, though, is how does this year compare to previous years based on high temperatures and humidity? July ended up as the third warmest on record based on average temperature, so how does that factor in?
  • Microburst, severe thunderstorms cause damage in Bristol County

There were numerous reports of downed trees throughout Bristol County, MA. Heavy downpours in the path of that particular cluster caused some roadway flooding in poor drainage areas too. That was brought on by a front with drier air pushing into a warm and humid air mass.

Basically, a black moon is the second new moon to occur in a month. Today is the last day of July, so we just made the cut this time around.

Until then, there'll be great beach days, but the risk of getting caught up in a Rip Current too.
