Monday was a warm and humid day ahead of a backdoor cold front that pushed through by lunchtime; at Philly International Airport the morning low was 69 around 4pm and we reached a high of 87 shortly before 11am before that front came on through. There were showers and thunderstorms around the region, but as of the 5pm advisory only 0.03″ was recorded at the ASOS.
Overnight will remain overcast with scattered showers and thunderstorms; lows will range from the middle 50s along the shore to the lower 60s in Center City as a warm front pushes back northward. Tuesday will feature a mostly cloudy sky with showers and thunderstorms through the late morning as a cold front pushes through; highs will be in the lower 80s early, but then fall back in the 70s with isolated showers in the afternoon.
After an overnight low Tuesday night into the upper 50s Wednesday will feature sunshine, fair weather cumulus, and a northerly wind. Highs will be in the lower 70s and Thursday will be the same although an area of low pressure passing by to the south may provide some scattered light showers across the Delmarva.
Friday remains seasonable with highs in the lower 70s while a mainly dry cold front will pass through by the evening; maybe a spot shower overnight into Saturday morning, but right now Saturday looks to be mainly sunny with highs around 70. Sunday will be in the upper 70s to near 80 as we watch a frontal boundary try and nudge southward just like this Monday; Memorial Day weekend may be cool and damp with highs in the upper 60s to around 70 with an onshore flow as we get backdoored(again)….
