    Onshore Flow Sunshine Today Very Warm Temperatures Late Week Still No Rain

    A backdoor cold front moved southward from New England yesterday and now lies across Southern Virginia. High pressure to the northeast is producing another day of ocean winds and that will hold temperatures down. We will have mostly sunny skies except for areas from Southern New Jersey southward but even there it should be no worse than partly sunny. There isn't much if any rain showing up on the regional radar today and rain will remain elusive this week. Highs today will range from the 60s at the shore to mostly 70s inland.

    This high to the northeast will eventually reposition its self to the south and that should weaken the onshore flow starting Thursday. This will allow temperatures to warm up for the end of the week. An approaching cold front Friday to the north will bend the winds more to the west especially inland and that will allow temperatures to climb. The onshore flow holds Wednesday but with sunshine we will see highs again in the 60s along the shore, 70s as you move inland. We should see areas from Western and Northwest New Jersey north and west reach the upper 70s to lower 80s for highs. Thursday, the onshore flow begins to relax and with sunshine we will see highs reach into the 80s over a larger area inland with the coolest readings in the 70s confined to the immediate coast and 60s again along the shore. Friday with more of a west wind we will see sunshine take highs to the upper 80s and lower 90s inland with cooler 70s at the coast.

    Friday night into Saturday that cold front we mentioned from New England will drop southward and pass through during the day Saturday. Dew points Friday will come up a bit to the mid 50s to around 60 and that might be enough moisture to set off a few showers or a thunderstorm when the front passes. I'm not sure how extensive these showers will be at this point but in a dry pattern it often pays to go with the trend so for now we will say that it won't be a big deal. The front coming in from northeast to southwest makes for a rather odd looking high temperature map forecast for Saturday. From New Jersey north and east it will be in the 70s for highs with northeast winds after the front passes while to the west it is in the 80s, at least until the front moves through. Sunday likely winds up being the better of the two weekend days and i think these temperatures may wind up being too high inland. For now lets say that it will be no worse than partly sunny for Sunday with highs in the mid 70s to lower 80s in most places. Next week could bring some chances for rain mid and late week though this dry pattern is going to try and hold firm without a solid catalyst to break it down.
