April 25th, 2013 Forecast

Showers and storms will approach the region over the next few hours. The best chances of these will be west and northwest of the city as dynamics and support are a bit better up there...and the influence of daytime heating will help those areas out.  For those east of the city, showers may be on a marked weakening trend as the atmosphere will not be very unstable closer to the coast.   We do think the line becomes more scattered in nature towards sunset as the loss of daytime heating and the ocean's more stable air combine to weaken the line as the evening progresses.

Lows by morning will drop into the 40's in most places, warmest along I-95 and at the Shore.  Winds will veer around from the south to the west as the front passes through.

Thursday features a modest breeze in the morning before winds die down towards afternoon.  Skies will be mostly sunny, with some puffy clouds popping up and passing through as the day progresses.  Temperatures will be a bit cooler but nothing we can't handle -- highs will get into the middle 60's throughout the region.

Tonight's front sets up a very nice stretch of weather as we block in for a while with high pressure near us.  As of now, we have the nice weather holding into Monday before perhaps taking a bit of a dip on Tuesday as the influence of an easterly breeze sets up early next week.  The early parts of next week feature a bit more uncertainty from a forecast standpoint but we're looking for a relatively nice stretch of weather to take hold until at least Sunday.
