Deja Vu For Sunday

Climate report for Saturday
Climate report for Saturday
Scott Derek

It has not been the perfect Summer weekend like we have been accustomed to(I prefer to say that we've been spoiled in fact!); it was an overcast and dreary day with heavy rain in the morning that tapered off to light rain and drizzle in the afternoon. 0.35" fell at Philadelphia International Airport, but almost 2" fell across coastal New Jersey(mostly in the morning). The high reached 77 shortly after 2:30pm after a low of 68 shortly after sunrise.

That stationary front is still meandering just offshore and a short wave to the west will exacerbate more showers on Sunday

Overnight it will remain overcast with light rain possible as well as another round of fog; lows will be in the upper 60s; For Sunday we still have that stationary front nearby as well as a short wave to the north and west so there will be isolated showers and thunderstorms with highs around 80 and a continued easterly wind between 10-15mph. We finally clear out Sunday night with lows in the middle 60s while Monday is sun-filled and seasonable with highs in the middle 80s. Although that stationary front will be well offshore I do feel that there will be some clouds(especially along the shore) in the afternoon on Tuesday with highs in the middle 80s.

Come Wednesday a cold front will approach from the west so there will be showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon with highs in the lower 80s; it lingers overnight into Thursday morning and then we'll clear out in the afternoon with highs in the lower 80s. If there is a silver lining to the cold front pushing through it will help steer Tropical Storm Bertha well to the east and not affect us(other than some higher surf along the shore).
