Losing Some Influence, Retaining Some Heat

Another hot day ahead for the Delaware Valley -- temperatures in the lower 90's by day's end across inland areas, with 80's at the Shore. Yep, just like the last three days. It's a near repeat (or is that a four-peat) of the temperature regime we've seen around here since Wednesday.

Expect mostly sunny skies for the vast majority of the day -- and expect a bit more breeze than yesterday as southwest breezes increase to the teens, perhaps reaching 20 mph in gusts in the midday and afternoon hours.

A few pop up thunderstorms are possible during the afternoon hours as the influence of high pressure aloft wanes a bit and we tap into a bit more instability out ahead of a cold front that approaches us on Sunday.  Thunderstorms will be isolated to perhaps widely scattered -- more likely in western and northwestern parts of our region and even then it looks like those storms won't be in all spots.  If a storm does pop, heavy downpours and gusty winds are possible in the strongest of cells as they move on through.
