Hit or miss showers to end the week
THIS EVENING: Few showers, maybe a thunderstorm, possible until around 7pm. The rest of the night should be very quiet and dry. Clouds will break up and temps will fall from the upper 70’s to the upper 60’s.
MORNING: With the skies clearing, patchy fog will be possible. Clouds will stream in from the south increasing across the area. Lows will not be a cool and should remain in the low to mid 60s with isolated spots hitting upper 50’s.
TOMORROW: Mostly cloudy skies and threat for showers may be as early as noon time as moisture moves up from the south. They will be hit or miss heading into the afternoon and evening, cannot rule out a rumble of thunder. Temperatures will be cooler in the upper 70’s to near 80.
OUTLOOK: Frontal boundary off shore will inch closer heading into the weekend. Area of low pressure develops along it while riding up the coast. It will shift our winds to the east which means more clouds and showers more likely. Question will be where the heavy rain band sets up. Some models paint it closer to the Philadelphia area, others right across our area. We will be watching for the potential for heavy rain on Saturday. Temperatures will be held in the 70’s do to the clouds and showers. Rain threat continues into Sunday with temperatures only rebounding slightly. You’ll notice the humidity a bit more. Early next week the upper level pattern relaxes and high pressure builds in at the surface allowing for temperatures to warm up closer to average in the mid to upper 80s. Rain chances will go down until a front comes in Wednesday producing the threat for a few showers or thunderstorms. Temperatures remain in the low 80s mid-week but warm back up Thursday.
TROPIC UPDATE: The National Hurricane Center still keeping an eye on a disturbance in the Atlantic which has about a 70% chance of developing into a tropical system. The associated showers and thunderstorms have diminished but are expected to build once again possibly declaring it a tropical depression later tonight into tomorrow. Models still show it approaching the U.S. mainland next week but at this point, a cold front swinging in Wednesday should steer it away from the coast.
