A Bit Cloudier, Still Comfortable

We won't say today will be a terrible day -- it certainly won't be anywhere close to the sort. Will it be as awesome as the last three days? No, it won't. Clouds will be around in greater supply, especially as we work into the afternoon and evening hours as the frontal zone to our south nudges closer to us in response to a wave of low pressure that's tracking through the Southeast. Along that front, showers will spread slowly north and northeast, getting into Maryland and perhaps Southern Delaware by late afternoon or evening.

I expect the vast majority of the day at the Delaware Beaches to be dry. It won't be beautiful but it will be better than tomorrow, where showers will be around in greater supply.

Philly and points north should see a bit more sun than South Jersey and Delaware but clouds will be around, generally increasing through the day.

Temperatures will be similar to yesterday north of the city, a degree or two cooler in the city, and a few degrees cooler south of the city in response to those extra clouds.  Expect low 80's city and north, around 80 in inland areas south, and the mid 70's at the Shore.  Winds will be light.  If we were comparing this to any typical August day, it'd be nice overall. However, we just came off of three incredible days of weather so our lofty expectations of nice given the recent weather we had may not be completely met.
