May 12th, 2013 Forecast

Thunderstorms around parts of the region this evening will gradually push away, leaving us with a variably cloudy overnight. Some of the storms could be a bit strong as they push through, especially to our south and southeast, with gusty winds and heavier downpours in spots.  Storms should taper off as the evening progresses from west to east, with most of the thunderstorm activity offshore by Midnight or just after that.

Lowering humidity levels should work on in from the west but some patchy fog will be possible in some locations later on.  Lows by daybreak will range from 50 northwest to the mid and upper 50's city and points southeast.

Sunday shapes up as a breezy, cooler, less humid day. Skies will start mostly sunny but gradually clouds will pop to our west and move on in.  Winds could gust to 30 mph from the west, sustained in the teens or up to 20 mph, which will help draw in cooler air from the west.  Highs tomorrow get into the mid and upper 60's in most places. A few spots south of the city could reach 70.

There is still some possibility for frost from Allentown, Reading, and points north and west on Sunday night.  We'll update you on Sunday about the potential.  Monday night will be the coolest of the nights ahead and could see frost in the Pinelands in South Jersey as well as winds will be lighter through the whole of the region.
