Stationary Front Starts To Pull Away; Isolated PM Showers N&W

Climate report for Sunday
Climate report for Sunday
Scott Derek

Sunday was essentially a carbon copy of Saturday with morning rain(a longer duration along the shore) and then there were some break in the clouds in the afternoon. We were still well below average thanks to an easterly wind as the high at Philadelphia International Airport reached just 77(we should be at 87) after a rather seasonable low of 67 in the morning. Officially at the airport 0.23" fell, but the heaviest rain fell along the shore again, BUT also north and west thanks to a short wave that is currently pushing across the region. Overnight we still run a risk for showers and thunderstorms as the short wave pivots to the north and east with lows in the middle 60s.

The front is finally pushing offshore, but a short wave will keep the clouds and threat of showers around into Monday

Come Monday there will be morning clouds giving way to partial sunshine in the afternoon with highs in the middle 80s and a southerly wind; since the short wave will still be around there will isolated showers and thunderstorms possible, but to the north and west. After an overnight low in the middle 60s we'll be in the upper 80s on Tuesday with a mixture of sunshine and clouds as the stationary front is well offshore, but an area of low pressure riding along it will provide some clouds(mostly at the shore). The clouds push away by nightfall and we'll clear out overnight with lows in the middle 60s.

Come Wednesday there will be a cold front approaching from the west and highs will reach the middle and upper 80s with showers and thunderstorms by the evening commute; they will linger overnight with lows in the upper 60s while Thursday will feature slow clearing as high pressure nudges in from the north and west., Highs will be in the lower 80s with a northerly wind. We'll stay between the lower and middle 80s come Friday and then leading into the weekend as well.
