Clouds/Cooler Today

A storm-system that developed yesterday in the Southern states, will be paralleling the coast and passing just to our east today.  This morning the western edge of the rain with this system is along coastal areas.  Radar currently shows some showers over coastal Delaware and along the S NJ coastline.  A lot of this is very light and some may not even be reaching the ground.  The risk for a shower or two will linger in these areas for the next few hours.  By the afternoon, any precipitation will be offshore as the system will being to quickly move away.  Clouds will still be around throughout the day.  A you travel farther west, especially west of I-95, there will definitely a little more sunshine.

Most of the region today will see a good amount of clouds with some sunshine from time to time.  Again, areas further inland will probably see more sunshine than coastal areas.  There will also be a trough moving through the area today bringing some colder air.  This will also aide in clouds and even a few snow showers well north and west of Philadelphia and towards the Poconos.

Temperatures will be colder today with highs for most areas in the 40's.  Well north and west of Philadelphia, highs will probably struggle to reach the 40 degree mark.  This shot of cold air will linger into tomorrow as well, before we see temperatures modify and warm starting Tuesday.
