August 26th, 2013 Forecast

Tonight will be another comfortable night for sleeping.  There will be scattered high clouds around, and lows will range from the mid 50s north and west to the low 60s in Philadelphia.

Monday will be a bit warmer than today along with a healthy breeze out of the west-southwest.  Look for a mix of sun and clouds, with more clouds later in the day than earlier.  Highs will reach the low to mid 80s inland, and the Shore will be right around 80.  As a disturbance moves through Monday night, a round of scattered thunderstorms is possible while we are sleeping and it should clear out by daybreak Tuesday.

We are in a "ring of fire" setup Tuesday and Wednesday as an area of high pressure over the center of the country spins a few disturbances into our neck of the woods.  Therefore, we'll have a threat for some spotty showers and thunderstorms Tuesday and Wednesday.  It won't rain all day, and there will still be a fair amount of sun, but be mindful that it could rain at any point during those days.  Humidity will be very uncomfortable, too, especially on Wednesday with dew points around 70 degrees.

A weak cold front will move through on Thursday, but it won't have a lot of moisture to work with.  An isolated thunderstorm is possible, but many areas will experience a dry day.  There really isn't any cooler air behind the front, and as high pressure builds in on Friday and clears out our skies, it will remain warm for Labor Day Weekend.
