EVENING: A few clouds and mild. Temps in the low 70s.
TONIGHT: Increasing Clouds and mild. Low 62.
TUESDAY: AM Showers, Thunder, A Few PM Showers/Storms. Hi 76. Winds: W 5-10 mph.
A steady southwesterly breeze pushed Monday’s highs to 80 degrees. Tonight will remain mild as we remain in the 60s through Tuesday morning. All of this mild air is lifting northward in advance of a cold front that arrives tomorrow.
This front will bring us virtually our only rain chance this week and that comes Tuesday. There will be showers around as early as daybreak with a rumble or two of thunder possible as well. It appears the front will get hung up a bit, which could lead to a second round of showers and storms during the late-morning/afternoon. There can even be a stronger storm that pulses up along and south of Route 30. Although it may sound like a lot of rain, most areas will likely see less than a quarter inch of rain total for Tuesday.
In behind Tuesday’s front, conditions will dry out again this week. An upper-level low will hang out along the northeast coast, but looks to stay too far away to have much impact on our weather other than ushering in cooler air and some daytime clouds. For most of us, highs Thursday and Friday won’t reach 70 degrees, but a slow recovery back into the low 70s is expected next weekend. A slow-moving trough will attempt to bring some showers our way toward the back half of Sunday.
