Nearly 100 record highs set to fall this weekend in Northeast

Bermuda High, a ridge of high pressure that becomes anchored in the Atlantic Ocean near Bermuda and usually lingers in the region for most of the summer. That area of high pressure can also affect the track of hurricanes if and when they develop in the ocean.Temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees above average are expected across the region, with many areas seeing highs in the 90s from the mid-Atlantic and Ohio Valley into the Northeast and New England.Most of the extreme heat will be confined to the Ohio Valley and mid-Atlantic.The good news for the South: Some relief is on the way in the form of a cold front that will help to bring temperatures closer to average on Sunday.

However, that's not the story for the East, as nearly 100 more record highs are forecast to fall as the heat begins to sizzle in the region.The National Weather Service has issued the Northeast's first Heat Advisories of the season from parts of New England to the northern mid-Atlantic, where the heat index is expected to climb into the upper 90s to near 100 degrees on Saturday and/or Sunday.Heat Advisories are in effect for parts of the Northeast. (FOX Weather) To give an idea of how rare it is to have Heat Advisories issued in May in the Northeast, the only NWS office in the region to issue this alert in May since 2006 is Philadelphia/Mt.

‘Our lobsters are gold plated now’: Atlantic Canada lobster exports, prices soar
Dumping day - Lobster fishing season opens in southwestern Nova Scotia Sales of live and processed lobster rebounded following the first wave of COVID-19.Prices started to go up with demand and have continued climbing since.Canadian lobster exports reached a staggering $3.26 billion last year, beating the previous record of $2.59 billion, set in 2019, by more than 25 per cent.With many consumers saving money during the pandemic and limited travel or restaurant dining, the crustacean long considered a luxury item for special occasions became a top seller in the U.S.“Americans bought lobster during the pandemic like they never did before and that drove up demand and price,” says Geoff Irvine, executive director of the Lobster Council of Canada.While processed lobster — meat and tails — was in high demand in the U.S., sales of live lobster increased in Asia.“There is unlimited demand in Asia for Canadian lobster,” Sproul says. “It’s a top quality product and we have a good trade relationship.”Strong demand, coupled with smaller catches in winter months, sent shore prices spiralling as high as $19.50 a pound.“The highest wharf price that I’ve ever heard of for lobster in my life was a few weeks ago at $19.50 a pound,” Sproul says.Prices have since dropped to around $14.50 this week and could ease further during the spring lobster fishery.The opening of several lobster fishing areas across Atlantic Canada in the coming weeks is expected to boost supply.Thousands of extra fishing boats will hit the water setting traps.
