Saturday was another above average day despite the clouds and light showers in the afternoon; after a morning low of 48 at Philly Airport(average low is 35) we reached 62 in the afternoon(average high is 51). We did tie a record at Atlantic City Airport today of 69(set back in 2011) with more sunshine as the frontal boundary has been slow to push on through.
Overnight will remain cloudy with a few sprinkles/light showers; lows will range from the upper 30s north and west(with less cloud cover) to the middle 40s in Center City. Sunday the front will push through northern areas, but still be draped across Southern NJ and into the Delmarva; clouds and light showers are possible to the south and east with highs around 50.
The front finally pushes through overnight Sunday and Monday will feature sunshine, but with an onshore flow; highs will be in the lower 50s. There will be a storm system pushing in from the south so clouds will stream in after Midnight Monday and Tuesday will feature showers(north and west may start off with some sleet or freezing rain before changing over to plain ol’ rain). There is the possibility for 0.50-1.00″ of steady rain to fall through Wednesday as we are still a bit dry year-to-date.
Everything clears out by Thursday morning and highs will be around 50 with a northwesterly flow; that air really takes over for Friday with a chilly start in the 20s and afternoon highs just in the middle 50s. We rebound toward 50 for the beginning on next weekend.
