We begin Saturday with clouds and a few early showers.  A break for midday may allow for a peek or two of sun and some drying.  Highs only make it to the lower 80s.  Showers and storms arrive by evening with heavier rain arriving overnight.  The remnants of Bill, coupled with a frontal boundary mesh for the wet weather.  Expect 1-3” of rain area wide, with locally higher amounts, especially south and east.  Limited flooding potential exists, but the system will move in and out quickly.

Sunday starts with clouds and any showers tapering fast as Bill exits northeast. We should break up the wet weather day, with sunshine, warmth, and humidity back in play.  Only an isolated shower will linger in the forecast.  Highs hit the middle 80s.  Enjoy your day with dad!

Summer officially begins Sunday at 12:38PM with the sun’s most direct at the northernmost point of the yearly orbit, reaching the Tropic of Cancer.  Enjoy some of the most hours of daylight of the year!


We’re mostly cloudy this weekend with the shot at some rain.  Showers and storms become more numerous late Saturday into early Sunday.  Highs are near 80° Saturday and range from the upper 70s along the Jersey shore to the middle 80s along the Maryland shores for Sunday.  Waves are 3-5 feet with water temps in the lower 70s.

A zonal, or west to east flow, sets up shop which means any approaching storm systems will be fast moving and generally weaker.  Right now, it looks as if we stay on the warmer side of things with highs near or above average, in the middle 80s.  It’s partly cloudy with a chance for storms on Tuesday and Thursday into Friday.

Here’s to an amazing weekend folks!  Enjoy.
