A COOLER WEEKEND WITH SOME SHOWERS & THUNDERSTORMS FOR TONIGHT.

DISCUSSION:
Saturday: 9:00 AM

A large High Pressure system now off the Northern New England coast, will produce an East to Northeast flow of cool but rather stable air for today. A cold front now moving east through the Ohio Valley today, will move into the areas tonight and reach the coast on Sunday. Some showers and Thunderstorms will develop in our western and northern suburbs later today and this evening. This activity will then move into the PHL, NJ and DE, regions tonight into early Sunday morning. Rainfall amounts will range from .10" to .25" with higher amounts near heavier thunderstorms, mainly north and west of PHL.

During Sunday High pressure will slowly build eastward behind the front. Some sunshine is likely during the late morning and afternoon hours, as drier air beings to work in our region. For Sunday night we can expect fair weather along with cool overnight lows into the mid 40's to near 50 for much of the Delaware Valley. Monday should be a very nice day with mainly sunny skies and passing clouds during the afternoon hours. Highs will be 70 to 75.

Today:
Mostly Cloudy, breezy and cool with highs in the mid to Upper 60's. A slight chance of a shower or two, later in the day, this mainly north and west of Philly.

Tonight:
Cloudy with showers and scattered thunderstorms. General rainfall amounts of .25" to 50" can be expected, with higher amounts in heavier storms. Lows in the low to mid 50's.

Sunday:
Mainly cloudy early with a morning shower, then becoming Partly sunny and breezy during the late morning and afternoon hours. Highs in the low to mid 70's.

Take Care,
Ruggie
