Breezy Day With Some Brighter Skies

Temperatures this morning ranged from the mid 60's north and west of the city to the upper 60's along I-95 and around 70 at Cape May.  Most everyone has begun the drying process as rains have pulled away from everywhere but Long Beach Island in NJ, where a bit of drizzle remained as of 6 AM.  Low pressure is developing along the front that passed through yesterday and its development helped to bring over two inches of rain to the Shore and South Jersey last night, with around an inch of rain common to the north and west of Philadelphia.   That developing low pressure center will make for a breezy day today as north winds will pick up and gust to as high as 30 miles per hour at the Shore and to over 20 miles per hour inland this afternoon.

Skies will vary in cloud cover through the day -- we will see more sunshine this morning and early this afternoon but as the coastal low pivots southward later today (in the Atlantic) we will see some cloud cover thrown back across New Jersey, Delaware, and perhaps into Southeast Pennsylvania as well.  A shower can't be ruled out this afternoon at the Shore as well as moisture off the Atlantic and from the coastal low are thrown back into the region.  Highs today will range from 82/83 in Philly and points west to the mid and upper 70's at the Shore.
