For today, the best chances for shower and storm activity are west and north of the city where rainfall that is currently in Western Pennsylvania should work through later on...perhaps as soon as midday. From the city on southeast, the weather should be dry enough where rainfall holds off until this evening for those of you closer to the city, til tonight at the coast. Showers will increase in coverage across Central Pennsylvania by Noon, extending into the Lehigh Valley, and then gradually the Philly burbs this afternoon...with a few rumbles of thunder embedded in for good measure. Severe weather is not likely but the strongest of storms to our west/northwest could bring gusty winds and heavier rainfall.
For Jersey and Delaware, it will be breezy and mainly cloudy through the day as southwest winds ahead of the front increase...gusting to over 20 miles per hour east of 95. There could be a few glimpses of sun but on the whole clouds will rule the sky. Highs today will range from around 70 NW to the mid 70's in Delaware, with Philadelphia getting to around 72 this afternoon.
