Outside Of Stray Shower/Storm, A Much Better Day

After four inches of rain in Philadelphia from the tropical remnants of Andrea, the region could use a couple of dry days. By and large, we will get that although we can't promise completely dry weather today.  A weak disturbance will push through Pennsylvania this afternoon and probably trigger a few showers and storms in pop up fashion as we work into the 3-5 PM range.  Those showers and storms will pivot east and probably diminish after sunset.  High resolution modeling suggests those showers and storms pop to the city's north, perhaps even above I-80.  Other models aren't quite as kind and do include us in a chance for a few showers or storms.  These won't be widespread, mainly pop up and scattered types.

Temperatures, which are refreshing this morning and in the lower half of the 60's for most of us, will warm through the course of the day.  Expect highs this afternoon around 80 away from the ocean, with 70's holding tight at the coast thanks to a few clouds lingering around a bit longer and a seabreeze that nudges in during the afternoon.  It should be a relatively nice day by summer standards today and will give the region a much needed chance to dry out provided those showers do indeed stay to our north.
