June 8th, 2013 Forecast

Rain will continue into this evening, and it could come down hard at times.  After midnight it will slowly begin to taper off, and by morning we will be dry.  Lows will generally be 60-65 across the region, perhaps a few upper 50s in the Lehigh Valley.  North winds will shift from the west at 5 to 15 mph.

Saturday will be a mainly dry day, but I can't call it a completely dry day.  A weak disturbance in the upper levels will be passing through, and while most places won't see a shower, some places may.  Just don't be surprised if you get wet by a brief shower or sprinkle at some point on Saturday.  Highs will reach the low 80s inland and the mid to upper 70s at the Shore.  Winds will be out of the west-southwest at 5 to 15 mph.

The second half of the weekend looks great.  It will be a warm day on Sunday with highs around 85.  Another warm one is expected Monday, but an approaching low pressure system could bring us some showers.

The low pressure system will move through on Tuesday, and we'll likely see periods of rain.  Beyond this, the computer models are not in agreement, so we have to put a shower chance in the forecast for both Wednesday and Thursday.  One of these days may end up dry, but it's hard to say which day (if any day) at this point.  High pressure looks to build in on Friday and put an end to our unsettled pattern.
