On this first day of Astronomical Summer(it's been Meteorological Summer since June 1st) we reached a high of 79 this afternoon at Philly International Airport with clouds giving way to sunshine by the afternoon; there was an area of low pressure passing by to the south and although there were light showers and sprinkles across the region there was no rain recorded at the airport(and only a trace recorded at Atlantic City Int'l Airport). For the most part everyone was dry, but that picturesque Summer day was best the further north you were today.
Overnight will feature a partly cloudy sky with lows in the lower 60s; Sunday will feature plenty of sunshine and an easterly wind so highs will be in the lower 80s. The same thing goes for Monday with highs continued into the lower 80s with low humidity and an onshore wind.
Come Tuesday we'll be getting into more humidity and you'll feel the dewpoints rise into the middle 60s; highs in the afternoon will be in the upper 80s with clouds as a warm front tries to push north across the region; we should stay mostly dry, but if there's some fog or mist it won't count for anything more than a trace of precipitation.
The warm front pushes northward overnight into Wednesday so on Wednesday itself we'll push into the lower 90s with heat and humidity. There will be showers and thunderstorms in the late afternoon and evening as a cold front that will push through overnight into Thursday morning. Overnight continued showers and thunderstorms will eventually come to an end by sunrise with lows in the upper 70s and then Thursday afternoon we'll begin to feel drier dew points as highs will be into the lower 80s.
We warm back into the middle 80s on Friday with high pressure sitting on top of the region with a westerly wind, but come Saturday we'll get into a more southerly flow with highs around 90 and the risk for showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. It looks like we stay warm going through the rest of the weekend and going into the next work week.
Let's not get ahead of ourselves too far in advance; for now enjoy the seasonable and dry weather and remember that you can check out the rest of the 7-day forecast(any time) at www.scottderekwx.com/forecast.html.
