August 13th, 2013 Forecast

Another warm and muggy night is expected tonight.  There could be a spotty evening thunderstorm, but the majority of the storms will arrive late tonight in a scattered fashion.  This means that storms will likely be around during the morning commute, so plan accordingly.  Lows will range from 67 to 72 across the region.

Our cold front will push through during the day on Tuesday from northwest to southeast, firing up more scattered storms.  Some of the storms could be strong to severe, so be sure to keep an eye to the sky and pay attention to any watches/warnings that are issued.  The biggest threats will be heavy rain and damaging wind gusts.  There won't be much in the way of sun, although there could be a break or two at times, so high temperatures should hold in the low 80s but the humidity will make it feel warmer.

Behind the cold front is a cool, dry, Canadian airmass.  The sun will return on Wednesday with much lower humidity.  Awesome weather will persist right through Friday with highs just above 80 degrees.

As an area of low pressure moves up the East Coast, there is a bit of uncertainty for the weekend.  It looks as if any showers or storms will stay south and east of the Delaware Valley, but extreme South Jersey or Delaware could get wet for a brief period either day.  A frontal boundary could ignite a few thunderstorms on Monday, but the day shouldn't be a wash-out.
