Summery Interlude

Fog and low clouds lurk around the region early this morning and will be a bit of an issue through the mid morning hours in some locations.  Today will shape up as a warmer day than the last several as the stalled front fizzles out enough to get warmth and sunshine in for much of the Delaware Valley later on today.

A weak frontal boundary will drop into New York and New England this afternoon and tonight, bringing a chance of thunderstorms to our north.  While we should remain dry today, I've thrown in a chance of an isolated thunderstorm around the region as humidity is sufficient to trigger afternoon thunderstorms in a few locations.  Any storm could be slow moving and locally drenching.

We're shooting for the mid 80's this afternoon in the region, warmest south of the city in Delaware where some upper 80's can't be ruled out.  It will be markedly cooler at the Shore -- low 70's might be the best we can swing east of the Garden State Parkway.  Winds will be from the south and southwest at around 10 mph.  Humid, warm, summery type day in store.
