Warm, Scattered Storms May Lurk

Some scattered showers and storms lurk around the region this morning in association with an upper level disturbance. Thunder is in slightly better concentration to our northwest while showers dot through from the Philly suburbs southeast to Atlantic City.  All of this is moving east and northeast early this morning.

This disturbance is out in front of a cool front that is in Canada early this morning and will slide southeast slowly through the day. The disturbance will probably do more to generate shower and storm activity around here...and those showers and storms through the day will be scattered in nature.

It doesn't appear that we'll see a widespread thunder event around town -- and the storms associated with the cold front likely stay north of us as the frontal boundary's timing looks to be late tonight and early Friday morning and should cross the region dry. The front will knock temperatures back a bit from the near 90ish regime of the past three days, with temperatures a few degrees cooler tomorrow and then a couple of degrees cooler on Saturday as well.

Expect temperatures today to get into the mid and upper 80's in the Delaware Valley, mid 80's at the Shore.
