Lots of Clouds. Showers/T'Storm Southern Areas
Similar conditions will exist throughout the day today with northern areas seeing more sun and drier conditions than in the city and points south. There is a weak area of low-pressure currently over northern VA that continues to travel north, but is also weakening at the same time. This system will continue to weaken and eventual dissipate later tonight. But with its close proximity to our region, it is sparking off showers and thunderstorms. Most of the heavier rainfall in spots is confined to Maryland at the moment. If it holds together, it may make its way into York/Chester counties in the next few hours. Expect most of the shower/thunderstorm threat to stay in Delaware, South Jersey and Southeast PA through the day.
Cloud cover will also vary with more sunshine north and less south. It will also feel balmy and tropical, as being on the eastern side of this low, we have a southeasterly flow off the ocean. Not a terrible day weatherwise, but be on the lookout for a few showers from time to time.
