Another Muggy Day With Storms In Spots
After that, a near repeat of yesterday is on tap for the region. Mostly sunny skies will be the "main" feature of the day with a few afternoon and evening thunderstorms around. Like the past couple of days, thunderstorm development will be spotty to widely scattered. Any storm that does pop could produce a localized downpour or gusty winds. Higher resolution modeling suggests that storm development will be higher in Delaware and Eastern Pennsylvania than in New Jersey but, like yesterday, we're looking at a 20-30% type coverage day...so not everyone will get a storm and many locations *should* stay dry.
Temperatures this afternoon get to the lower 90's away from the water -- 80's at the Shore. With dew points values close to 70, it will feel like the upper half of the 90's at peak heat. Muggy, summery, but not oppressive heat as we likely chalk up our 33rd day of 90+ temperatures.
