What a hot and humid day on Wednesday! After a low of 72 at Philadelphia International Airport in the morning we reached 93 at 3pm in the afternoon; it felt more like the upper 90s when you factored in the heat index thanks to dewpoints into the lower 70s. Yuck!
The showers and thunderstorms pushed through by the evening commute in advance of a cold front that will push through overnight and into Thursday morning; the overnight climate report will reflect the rainfall up until Midnight. Overnight lows will be in the lower 70s with leftover showers, clouds, and even some fog as well.
Thursday morning will be cloudy, but by the afternoon we'll get clearing as high pressure settles in from the west; highs will be in the middle 80s with a northerly wind in the afternoon. Overnight will be mostly clear with lows in the middle 60s while Friday will be in the lower 80s and a continued northerly wind. Come Saturday we'll be in the middle 80s as a series of low pressure areas approach the region from the west; in the afternoon there may be some showers and thunderstorms that will linger into the overnight with lows in the lower 70s. Sunday will be sunny after the morning clouds, but then ANOTHER wave of low pressure will slide through after sunset with ANOTHER round of showers and thunderstorms possible as well. Highs will be around 90 while the overnight low will be in the lower 70s.
Monday will remain overcast with the main cold front itself as highs will be in the upper 80s, but come Tuesday and for the middle of next week high pressure will set up shop on top of us; this means we'll have a northerly wind thanks to Canada air filtering in and highs will just be in the lower 80s while overnight lows will be in the lower 60s.
I will be out of town until Sunday so on www.scottderekwx.com you can still get satellite, radar, and current temperatures, BUT no 7-day forecast until Monday evening. Take care. :)
