Warm, Humid, August Weather Contunues with the Threat of Thunderstorms!

A Big Cool Down is Coming Sunday!

Good Morning,

There's some dense fog in the Tri-State Area again this morning, as well as spotty drizzle...

As of 3:15 a.m. the regional radar mosaic also was showing a couple of showers in the mid-

Atlantic region, most of which were occurring in eastern Pennsylvania, as well as in Maryland and

Delaware... And, as the latest front pushes from west to east across the region during the next 12

hours, these showers will pivot northeastward along the I-95 corridor... And, in addition to the

morning fog and a couple of showers, there will even be a thunderstorm in a couple of spots

today... Most temperatures will be in the mid and upper 70s, except in Philadelphia, Baltimore,

Washington, D.C. much of Delaware and South Jersey -- which will probably be in the lower 80s

before all is said and done... The Storm Prediction Center has put an area from extreme eastern

Pennsylvania through central New England in their 'general risk' category for thunderstorms,

which means they aren't expecting any thunderstorm to be strong or severe... These seems

reasonable, because there isn't much proof that the atmosphere will be all that unstable from

midday onward... The fact that all of this fog has returned early this morning is actually proof that

the environment we're in is rather stable... Rainfall totals between now and 8 p.m. will average less

than a quarter of an inch across the entire region, and then some clearing should occur later

tonight as drier air begins to filter into the area on light, westerly winds... The temperature

tomorrow should make a run at 80 degrees, and there will be lots of sunshine, which we haven't

seen too much of lately... The consensus now for Saturday (after a series of tweaks back and forth

regarding temperatures and timing) is that our next cold front, which will reaching the East Coast

later in the afternoon... This front, which will be much more potent than its predecessor today, is

going to unleash the season's coolest air mass thus far on the Northeast and the mid-Atlantic

states Saturday night and Sunday... We've settled on a forecast for Saturday of increasing clouds,

and temperatures in the lower 70s... But there should be a few widely separated showers around,

and perhaps even a thunderstorm, before the day is through...

That next cold front is going to have a wave of low pressure developing along it late Saturday and

Saturday night, which should usher a shield of steadier rain into the area either late on Saturday

night or early Sunday morning... We continue to feel very confident about the much cooler

scenario setting up for Sunday, when temperatures will fail to get out of the mid or upper 50s..

Add at least a few hours of rain to this, and you almost come up with the POLAR OPPOSITE of

what we're expecting tomorrow... So, for those who have weekend plans, Saturday should be the

better of the two days for outdoor activities -- because even if there is a shower or two, it will be

holding off until some time later in the afternoon, and temperatures will be some 10 or 15 degrees

higher than what we're anticipating on Sunday...

Have a good day!!!

Why you are not showing the casino on the board walk? Is the front of casino damage on the board walk? Is is flooded out? is the board walk still there?

BILL,
I HAVE BEEN A VIEWER FOR YEARS AND I HAVE NEVER, EVER, HEARD YOU OR IRA REFER TO HOW THE TRAFFIC OR WEATHER APPLIES TO MOTORCYCLISTS.
CAN YOU PLEASE TAKE US INTO ACCOUNT AS I WATCH YOUR BROADCAST IN THE AM TO DETERMINE WHETHER I WILL RIDE IN OR NOT.
AS FAR AS SANDY IS CONCERNED, I HEAR THAT THERE IS A THREE PASSENGER REQUIREMENT FOR 'VEHICLES'TRAVERSING THE BRIDGES AND TUNNELS. BUT WHAT ABOUT MOTORCYCLES? ARE WE PERMITTED ALONE?
PLEASE MAKE A MENTION.
BEST WISHES,
MIKE

Bill - Wanted to let you know that the autographed picture you gave me on the boardwalk in Point Pleasant Beach when you were signing books was on my refrigerator that was flipped when 3 feet of water came uninvited into our house. Your picture survived!!! The refrigerator did not.

Brian Pope

Bill,
Would Channel 7 be interested in setting up a mini weather station here at the Montauk Lighthouse. You could record all and beam it back to NYC. Let me know via e-mail if you are interested.
Thanks!

I don't want this comment displayed I thought I would just give you a heads up that "continues" is spelled wrong in your title.

Did I see you skiing on Friday? Didn't want to approach you when you were with your family, but am so curious to know if it was you.

I'd love to hear your thoughts about 2012 officially being the hottest year in US history.

Bill Evans is the best dressed man on television. He is the Pat Riley Of T. V. and Sam Champion is next. However, Mike Woods from Fox 5 needs a total makover!

I know Bill is having personal problems. I hope they get worked out soon and he will be back to work. He is very much missed by MANY.

Candice

Bill,

Could you remind everyone that in this hot and humid weather, they should not be bringing their pets in cars at all. That walking them on 100 degree hot asphalt can burn their paws and running them is harder on them than it is on a human? Thank you! You'd be amazed what I've seen this week.

Moreno Tagliapietra

Hi Bill, good to have you back. I have a nagging question for you: does dry humidity come from dry water? Thanks, Moreno

Hello Bill,
Please try this yourself. Grab a handle of snow and get a lighter or a match and try to melt it. .. Then you'll see what is making a few eye btows raise... It's not real snow. . It's not melting it burns. . That's not normal. Please give us an explanation. Thank you.

SAme1

Please excuse the typos.. I'm using my Android. . Lol

Mickey Flager

Hi Bill,
Kudos to you and the gang at WABC 7 weather. Boy did you get this one so very right and in a timely fashion. Love the app. Everyone should use it. Keep up the good work.

Hi Bill - can you provide the days and how much snow we received in new york city,
brooklyn and queens.

I need the info to bill my clients for snow removal from their buildings.

Thank you

Hi Bill,

Why do you leave out Mercer County, NJ from your weather map? Your map looks like it's missing a piece of the puzzle. Is Mercer County not considered a part of your viewing area?
