Highs and lows for Tuesday
Highs and lows for TuesdayScott Derek

Tuesday was your typical Summer day; it started off cloudy in the morning with even some light fog, but then the sunshine helped dissipate the fog and low clouds by mid-morning. We reached 86 by 1pm before the towering cumulus popped up and provided heavy flooding rains from training thunderstorms(training as in like cars on a train track moving over the same areas). As of the 8pm Public Notification Summary Philly International Airport received 2.59" which should go down as a daily record rainfall(the old record was 2.10" set just last year!).

A front is retreating southward through the region so highs will be in the 70s on Wednesday while the 80s stay south of the Mason-Dixon Line

Overnight it will remain overcast and also don't be surprised to see some fog with lows around 70; Wednesday will be cloudy with light showers and mist as the frontal boundary slides to the south of the region. Highs will be in the upper 70s with an easterly(onshore) wind. The boundary pushes back north as a warm front overnight into Thursday with showers and thunderstorms by daybreak. Lows will be in the upper 60s.

The cold front itself will take its time to clear the area so both Thursday and Friday will be humid with showers and thunderstorms as highs will be in the lower 80s. It's all gone by Saturday morning so high pressure settles in for the weekend with highs in the middle 80s!

Until then enjoy the high humidity and the frizzy hair! You can check out the rest of the 7-day forecast(any time) at www.scottderekwx.com/forecast.html.
