July 22nd, 2013 Forecast

The front that lies to our south provides little relief from the muggy pattern that's in place...dew points are down a notch but going from 75 to 70 to 68 isn't exactly relief-inducing.  A disturbance will nudge east along the front over the next couple of days and act as a focal point for thunderstorm development in the Delaware Valley.

I've thrown a chance of thunderstorms into the forecast for parts of the region as I do think thunderstorms lurk through the night but I think most of them will be of the scattered or isolated variety, with the best chances of storms hanging through the night to the city's south.

Monday provides a better chance of storms in the region, however, as the disturbance approaches the region. Scattered showers and storms will fire up during the day, with the prospect of localized downpours and heavy rain in the heavier storms that do fire. Not everyone gets hit by thunderstorms and some of us may go through tomorrow storm-free.  Highs tomorrow, with extra clouds around, will be a notch cooler and in the mid 80's for many locations...a notch (not reflected in the forecast above) cooler at the Shore.

The thunder threat continues into Tuesday locally, with perhaps a dry day or two on Wednesday and maybe Thursday as a front slides through the region and provides a brief bit of relief from humidity.
