Mostly Dry Through The Weekend Much Needed Rain Monday
We are down to just a couple of summer weekends left before the Labor Day holiday weekend. Looking forward it seems that the weekend will be mostly dry with no issues but before we get there, we have a very warm but still reasonably comfortable Friday with sunshine. Highs will reach the mid to upper 80s. Some warm spots inland could see highs near 90 degrees. Cooler temperature will occur along the shore. High pressure offshore will start to bring humidity levels up Saturday. There was a weak wave moving northward but that is going to be well offshore so we will see a few clouds tonight with lows in the 60s inland andl lower 70s in warmer urban locations.
Saturday will be more humid with partly sunny skies. There might be some clouds around in the morning but they should burn off very quickly. Saturday highs will be in the low to middle 80s. The same hold true for Sunday with partly sunny skies with highs in the low to middle 80s. Humidity levels on Sunday will reach uncomfortable levels.
Later in the day Sunday we have an approaching warm front from the southwest and this is ahead of low pressure in the Ohio Valley moving northeastward. Showers and possible thunderstorms could be on our doorstep by Sunday evening.
We will see some overnight showers Sunday night and then on Monday as the cold front approaches and moves through, the chance for showers and thunderstorms. It has been so bone dry that any rain will just make a small dent in the extremely dry to drought conditions over Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England. Monday’s highs will be in the 80s. This will probably be the only chance for rain over the next week. The rest of next week looks very warm, somewhat humid, with not much if any rain.
