TONIGHT: Increasing clouds. Lo 68.

MONDAY: Showers and Storms. Hi 76.

TUESDAY: Mostly Sunny and Breezy. Hi 78.

We had another taste of summer heat Sunday afternoon! Despite some filtered sunshine from high, thin cirrus clouds and even a few cumulus clouds bubbling, temperatures managed to reach the upper 80s to near 90. This is the last dose of heat in the 7 day as clouds continue to increase this evening ahead of some rain on Monday.

Monday will be noticeably more humid as a cold front approaches from the west. This will help to spark some showers and thunderstorms toward mid-day. Most of us will see some showers but not all of us will get the downpours we need. Generally, many of us will see up to 0.5″ but if we manage to get a storm or two, some can see in upwards of an inch. Don’t count on it, though, because the storms will remain scattered and the timing of the front will give Eastern PA the best shot at seeing the highest totals.

The front will clear through by Monday evening and Tuesday will feature more sunshine. An upper low will sit to our NW for the first part of the week bringing the opportunity for isolated showers mid-week but not the drought busting rain we need. The low should clear out by Thursday when temperatures will rebound into the mid 80s.

We are monitoring the chance for showers next weekend so stay tuned this week. We’re starting this week with over a 6 inch deficit but here’s to hoping we end the week with a smaller departure.
