THE LABOR DAY WEEKEND: BRAVO !!!

Discussion:
High pressure now offshore, will allow for a SW flow of warmer and more humid air for today and tonight. A cold front will approach the region tonight and move through tomorrow. Ahead of this front a few showers and thunderstorms will develop later this afternoon and evening, mainly west of PHL. There's a better chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms Tonight, with a few lingering showers for tomorrow. A large High pressure system will move in from the Great lakes over the Labor Day weekend, bringing pleasant conditions. This high should dominate our weather Saturday through Tuesday, with Highs mainly 80 to 85 and lows in the 50's and low 60's.

My Forecast: For the Delaware Valley.

Today:
P.Sunny warm and more humid, A shower or thunderstorm possible North and West of PHL. Highs in the mid to upper 80's.

Tonight:
M.Cloudy and humid with scattered showers and a possible thunderstorm. Lows in the Mid to upper 60's

Friday:
Considerable Cloudiness with a few scattered showers. Highs in the low to mid 80's. Humidity levels dropping during the afternoon.

Saturday:

Sunday:

Labor Day:

Looking good! Wish the weekend would be a bit cooler, but that's okay. Tomorrow's the last day of meteo summer, and that's certainly something to celebrate. Have a few "adult beverages" on me. ;)

I'm a "sometime" blogger, but I'm going to start up again in earnest next week.

And, Paul and I will see you at the Mount Holly "Open House". I've never been, and I'm really looking forward to it.

Have a great holiday weekend!

Hey Dee,
Have a great Labor Day weekend !
Where's your blog ? Do you have a link for me.

I'm not sure if I'll be going to the open house this year, but if I do attend, It'll be nice to meet you and your main man Paul !

Is He into the weather also ?

Cheers,
Ruggie

Hey, Ruggie!

My blog is in desperate need of "housekeeping issues", but I should be up and running next week, and I'll send you a link when it's done.

It should tell you something about the blogger when it's called "Would You Like Some Whine With Your Cheese?" ;p

Paul's the "space guy", and I'm the "weather girl", but we both love and appreciate the great outdoors in all of it's glory.

Dee,
I love that title of your Blog, Please do pass the link along to me. My Fiance is into the space stuff also, LOL ! I'm starting to put together some data pertaining to my winter forecast. So far it's not looking the greatest if you like big snowstorms and Cold, but there's more time and data to review over the next couple of months. If I had to take a preliminary stab at it now, I'd say +1 to +3 for our area and Snowfall Slightly Below Avg at 15 to 20 inches for PHL. A moderate La Nina is not good, but a weak La Nina is better for more cold and Snow. I'm leaning towards a Weak to Moderate La Nina at this time. We start the winter off good in a weaker signal, and end on a warmer not if the Nina goes to a Moderate signal.

Take Care,
Ruggie
