Filtering Some Sun Today

Temperatures are in the 60's and 70's this morning across the region -- warmest along I-95 in Philly and Wilmington early this morning.  Skies are mostly cloudy or cloudy as a layer of cirrus clouds pushes north up the coast.  A weak area of low pressure is firing up near the Outer Banks and will be a bit of a fly in the ointment of this weekend's weather as some shower chances will be present for both tomorrow and Sunday.  It will not, however, be a total washout in the region.

Regarding today, the cirrus layer of clouds will filter out the sun today...although there will be breaks in the cirrus from time to time and will allow for the sun to completely shine through.  Highs will get into the mid 80's along the coast before the seabreeze takes over in the afternoon, upper 80's along I-95, perhaps flirting with 90 towards Reading and Pottstown where cirrus clouds will be a bit less prevalent.   To our south and southeast, a sprinkle or shower could pop up this afternoon as southeast breezes nudge moisture inland and the influence of the weak coastal low takes over.
