Summer Heat Eases Across Northeast

Following some of the hottest days of 2014, cooler, more fall-like weather is expected across the Northeast through the beginning of the new week.

High temperatures from Boston to Baltimore are forecast to run near or below normal though Tuesday, giving residents across the Northeast a taste of autumn.

Lower humidity and dry weather will accompany the decline in temperatures, making for more comfortable conditions for those looking to spend some time outdoors.

A light jacket or hooded sweatshirt may come in handy for folks heading out early in the morning with overnight lows ranging from the mid-40s to mid-50s over the region's interior.

Patchy morning frost is even possible in the higher elevations of New York's Adirondack Mountains and New Hampshire's and Maine's White Mountains.

The low humidity and cooler conditions are not forecast to last through the entire week; however, as warmer, more humid air begins to move in for Wednesday ahead of the next storm system.

Temperatures will not reach the levels that they were this past week, but will still run a few degrees above normal along the I-95 corridor during the second half of the week. This translates to highs in the lower 80s.

The 80-degree warmth is not expected to stay for long as another push of cool air is projected to move in for next weekend in the wake of this system.

It is possible that this next wave of cool air brings even lower temperatures than what is seen over the Northeast early this week.

Last week's heat turned out to be some of the hottest weather across the Northeast all summer.

This included Central Park in New York City topping out at 92 F on Tuesday, Sept. 2. This was only the second time in 80 years that Central Park recorded their highest temperature of the year during the month of September.

Boston is another city that reached their highest temperature of the year on Tuesday, reaching 93 F.

With autumn right around the corner, it is looking like last week could end up being the hottest weather that the Northeast has until 2015.
