August 16th, 2012 Forecast

The frontal boundary responsible for the scattered heavy thunderstorms of the past couple of days is pushing away, leaving us a dry and less humid Thursday as a gift as we get in between frontal boundaries.

Evening thunderstorms over the next few hours, most numerous in Delaware and South Jersey, will gradually taper off after sunset.  Skies will clear and patchy fog will develop around parts of the region towards daybreak.  Temperatures will drop into the lower 60's northwest, mid and upper 60's along I-95 and southeast.

Any morning fog and low clouds will burn off during the mid morning hours, leaving us a sunny majority of Thursday with lower humidity levels and a nice day.  Temperatures will bounce into the middle and upper 80's across the region, warmest in Philly and south.   If you remember how nice Monday was from a temperature standpoint, Thursday will be similar but a couple of degrees warmer.  Still very nice though!

Friday will provide a shot at 90 around the region -- probably the best and last chance at 90 for about a week as another frontal boundary approaches the region Friday night and for the weekend.  Clouds, showers, storms are in the offing for Friday night and early Saturday before gradually lowering humidity takes over.
