August 30th, 2012 Forecast

Today is about as nice a day as one can get around the Delaware Valley -- temperatures aren't too warm, humidity nice and feels like a great day.  Tomorrow will be pretty nice, too, but we're going to see temperatures a few degrees warmer...and that gradual warming will continue into the weekend out in advance of a frontal boundary that will cross the region on Saturday night.

Tonight will be comfortably cool outside of the city as lows get down into the lower 50's in the north and west (perhaps even the 40's in the Poconos), and into the mid 50's in the Pinelands.  The city stays above 60 but it will be a nice sleeping night for all.   Thursday will feature mid 80's for most everyone for highs, a couple of degrees cooler at the Shore, but an overall nice day with plenty of sunshine.

Isaac's remnant moisture may piecemeal through the region in shots -- model guidance suggests this could happen over the course of a couple of days.  Saturday features a front sliding down from the north and a few thunderstorms may fire along the front.  Sunday features a possible first impulse of Isaac's moisture pushing east as a disturbance rides along that front to our south.  The bulk of the moisture looks to push through on Tuesday (as of now) out ahead of the main front itself.  Modeling has waffled a fair deal on specifics but has generally slowed any progression of Isaac's moisture through our region.  It won't rain all throughout Labor Day weekend but it does look like we won't be able to dodge the weekend without a shower or storm threat.
