Thursday was a quieter summer day as Fred pulled away toward New England. The humidity and heat stayed behind Fred though, and high temperatures nearly hit 90°. More numerous showers should develop west to east after 10 PM, especially for areas along and south of the PA Turnpike. Low temperatures will be in the low 70s.
Tomorrow will bring scattered showers as another low swings through, mainly in the early morning. Highs will be around 80°. By Saturday, Tropical Storm Henri is expected to strengthen to hurricane status and move up the Atlantic shores toward New England. While it won’t have a direct impact, some moisture from Henri will interact with a boundary along the coast and throw moisture inland. Downpours and t-storms are looking likely for the second half of Saturday and flash flooding is a concern given the recent rains from Fred. Sunday we get back to more typical summer weather with partly sunny skies, high humidity, and just a pop-up afternoon storm. Summer isn’t going anywhere just yet!
