June 6th, 2013 Forecast


The great weather of the past couple of days is coming to an end...slowly...but it shall.  A warm front is going to nudge into the region tomorrow and bring about a chance of showers west of Philadelphia at some point during the day.  This, combined with a pair of storm systems that will track near the region, bring about the possibility of heavier rain for Friday into Saturday.  As of forecast time, there's still a bit of uncertainty on exactly how much rain falls as modeling varies on the track of the tropical half of this setup and that tropical moisture makes a good bit of difference between run of the mill showers & storms and tropical downpours that could yield some flooding.  We'll have another update on the rainy end of the week later this evening.

Until Friday, a slow descent in weather quality will take place.  High clouds increase tonight -- it will be a nice, pleasant night overall.  Lows by morning will generally bottom out in the 50's outside of the city, around 60 in Center City Philadelphia.

Thursday features the increased risk of showers west of the city during the day (mainly Central PA on into Northeast PA).  As of now, the city looks dry into the evening hours although rain may try to sneak in tomorrow night.  Highs tomorrow range from the low 70's at the Shore to the mid/upper 70's along I-95.
