Forecast for Sunday, September 15, 2013

Any clouds across the region should diminish after dark and skies are expected to be mostly clear. It will be a chilly night across the region with most of our suburbs dropping into the 40s and the urbanized areas dropping down into the lower 50s. Mount Pocono could drop into the upper thirties and there is the possibility of some patchy frost by daybreak in the mountains.

Late Sunday Night into Monday, a cold front will pass through the region. This front could create a few sprinkles or showers. As the front pushes offshore during Monday Afternoon, some clearing is anticipated. High pressure builds in behind the front into Wednesday. However, an onshore flow could create some low level moisture and clouds, especially for the eastern half of our area. Any onshore flow should diminish by Wednesday.

A warm front is expected to pass through our area late in the day on Thursday into Friday Morning, followed by a cold front on Saturday. It will turn humid after the warm front passes through. Showers and thunderstorms are possible with these fronts. However, the best chance of precipitation will be associated with the cold front. Should we see some destabilization and breaks of sunshine, some strong thunderstorms cannot be ruled out.
