August 11th, 2013 Forecast

The front that slid slowly through the region last night is to our south and holding over the lower portions of the Delmarva. It's been a bit cloudier south of the city than north and that trend will hold into tonight as skies to the south of us will be partly to variably cloudy while mostly clear skies hold to the north.  The same holds true for Sunday as well; however, the front will get a bit more active as a disturbance pushes east and northeast along it, setting off a few showers and storms to our south.

Tomorrow will not be a wash out by any stretch -- I think most of the day will be dry and most of the region will be dry as well. That said, there is the risk of a few storms popping south of Philadelphia in the afternoon. Just be aware of the chance if you're heading to or are at the Shore or Beach this weekend.

Lows tonight drop into the 60's, mildest along I-95 and coolest in Allentown and Quakertown.

Highs tomorrow bounce into the mid 80's for most everyone, warmest near I-95.  It'll be a pretty typical mid August afternoon with temperatures right around where they're supposed to be.

With the aforementioned disturbance pushing east, the shower and thunder threat continues into Monday in scattered fashion. A better chance of storms exists on Tuesday as a cool front approaches the region from the northwest. It would not surprise me if some of those storms were on the stronger or even severe side of the fence when they move through.
