Labor Day Weekend Dry Until Late Sunday
Showers Thunderstorms Possible Monday
A beautiful afternoon of sunshine covers Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England. The satellite shows virtually cloud free skies and the radars are nice and quiet. This leaves us with a nice afternoon and a nice clear night tonight. No rain is forecast making this perfect as a getaway day or as an arrival day for the Labor Day holiday weekend. Highs this afternoon will be 80 to 85. Dew points will remain in the very comfortable 50s. Speaking of 50s those are the forecast lows tonight inland and lower 60s along the coast and in warmer urban areas.
The next cold front is going to be slower to get to the coast which means that we will be dry Saturday and probably all day Sunday. I’m going to throw in the chance for a shower or thunderstorm late in the day Sunday inland. Humidity levels will start to rise Saturday but it should still be reasonably comfortable. Highs will be in the middle to upper 80s. Skies should be mostly sunny.
Sunday will be very warm to hot and humid under partly sunny skies. We are going to throw in the chance for a shower or thunderstorm inland late Sunday afternoon and evening but for the most part for most folks, especially at the shore this should not be an issue. It will be more humid Sunday with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 inland and lower 80s at the shore.
Monday as the map above shows the cold front will get closer to the coast to increase the chance for showers and thunderstorms especially in the afternoon and evening. Highs will reach the upper 70s and lower 80s with high humidity. Clouds will help to keep temperatures down on Monday but it will be uncomfortable. There might be some lingering showers early Tuesday until the front can push far enough of shore. This should lead to general improvement late Tuesday and that should carry through. However the European is even slower with the frontal passage and develops a wave and that could leave us in clouds and showers for much of Tuesday before improvement settles in.
