Cooler, Less-Humid Break Coming Cincinnati to NYC, DC

July 24, 2013; 6:24 AM

A break from the high humidity with cooler conditions is on the way from the Ohio Valley to the mid-Atlantic starting at midweek.

While portions of the Great Lakes and New England got a break from the heat with high humidity over the weekend, the edge was merely taken off the heat wave farther south.

A new push of cooler and less-humid air will be more successful beginning later Tuesday and Tuesday night over the Ohio Valley, then spread to the mid-Atlantic Wednesday.

When comparing AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures from last week to later this week, it will feel 25 degrees cooler in some cases.

The most notable change will be cooler nights and better sleeping weather for those who do not have air conditioning from mid- to late-week.

Temperatures will drop into the 50s over much of the Ohio Valley and central Appalachians as well as some of the northern and western suburbs of the I-95 cities. Lows will be in the 60s in the major metro areas along I-95 and the Tennessee Valley.

However, construction projects that have been delayed because of intense heat last week may have some delays due to rain this week.

The change to cooler weather will be accompanied by drenching downpours in some areas through Tuesday.

A second dose of rain may swing northward Thursday into Friday over the coastal mid-Atlantic.

Much of the week may be unsettled from the Tennessee Valley to the southern Appalachians and parts of Virginia.
