Not The Best Fourth, But It Could Be Worse(Arthur)

Climate report for Thursday
Climate report for Thursday
Scott Derek

It was another day with highs in the 90s across the region; in fact at Philly International Airport we reached 92 shortly before 4pm and before the showers and severe thunderstorms pushed through(for the second day in a row during the evening commute....but a lot of people took a half day so it wasn't that bad). As of the 5pm climate report there was 0.04" of rain officially reported at the ASOS, but that was from the showers overnight.

A frontal boundary provides showers and thunderstorms overnight, but also helps steer Arthur away from the Northeast

We will have scattered showers and thunderstorms overnight with lows in the middle 70s; there may be some fog as well as there is still plenty of moisture available in the lower levels of the atmosphere. Friday will be mostly cloudy with showers and thunderstorms to the east as the frontal boundary will be pushing offshore and dragging Hurricane Arthur with it; the issue will be that the frontal boundary along with Arthur will enhance moisture chances. Highs will be in the lower 80s and remain humid. Everything's gone by the evening with overnight lows in the lower 60s.

Saturday and Sunday shall be sunny and also feature low humidity as well; highs on Saturday will be in the lower 80s while Sunday will be in the middle 80s. A warm front will pass by to our north Sunday night into Monday so we'll get a southerly flow as well as higher humidity returning. Highs Monday will be in the lower 90s with increasing clouds by the late afternoon into the evening; a cold front will be pushing through on Tuesday with highs in the upper 80s and provide showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. We'll clear out by the afternoon on Wednesday with highs in the lower to middle 80s, but then another cold front works eastward for Thursday as we warm back up close to 90 degrees and thunderstorms overnight into next Friday.

Have a safe and happy Independence day; you can always check out the rest of the 7-day forecast(any time) at www.scottderekwx.com/forecast.html.
