As your probably felt over the weekend the heat and humidity has been on the increase.  It’s back for the first days of this work week.  It will be hot and humid for Monday and Tuesday.  The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for the Hudson Valley during the afternoon hours on Monday.  It appears, they may have to do the same on Tuesday.  Once again, those dewpoints temps will stay quiet high as this warm and humid airmass stays in place.

A cold front will move through the area on Monday and Tuesday, which could touch off some showers and thunderstorms.  Right now, the models aren’t favoring much in the way of activity on Monday, but Tuesday looks like we could see storms.  Then we get a break on Wednesday as temps lower into the 80’s and it becomes more seasonal.
