Opposite Of Torrential Is Terrific
Yesterday's storms are going to be a bit of a distant memory as refreshing northwest breezes and lower humidity levels blow into the region today. Dare we say "taste of September, part two?" On the heels of the refreshing start to August, we're going to enter a less humid and almost "cooler" regime for a few days as high pressure builds into the Great Lakes and Northeast.
The cool front responsible for this is hitting the coast early this morning, bringing lower dew points to everyone in the Philly metro and points north and west now, eventually giving the Shore a comfortable trend as dew points will eventually drop over the next few hours. Any lingering sprinkles at the coast now will quickly end before too much longer.
It will be breezy today -- winds sustained into the high teens, probably gusting over 25 mph in a few spots. Gotta kick the humidity out any way we can and the northwest breezes will be one way to do so!
Dew points will drop into the lower half of the 50's, upper half of the 40's through the course of the day with a mostly sunny day overall.
Temperatures this afternoon get into the upper half of the 70's just about everywhere, with a few 80-81 degree readings possible in South Jersey and Delaware. The bulk of the next several days looks awesome. Enjoy it -- it's definitely better than what we dealt with yesterday!
