We could use some rain in this neck of the woods, and according to the models, we should see some showers and thunderstorms move through the Philadelphia area and suburbs between 7 and 10 PM  Friday evening.

(The models have been back and forth about the areal coverage of these showers, but [most of] Friday afternoon’s models are more on board for an area of showers to move through ahead of a backdoor cold front. )

The ‘cold’ front will bring a slight drop in temps for Saturday.   It will wash out over us and temps will rebound to the 90s on Sunday.

Some low cloudiness may linger through the morning hours on Saturday, but skies will break for sunshine by early afternoon. 

Saturday —

  • Cloudy in the morning, then sunshine in the afternoon. (Cloudiness may linger in NJ longer.)
  • High temps 88.5º sd 1.3º
  • Winds light NNE 7-10 mph becoming southerly Saturday evening

Sunday —

  • Sunny and hot
  • High temps 92.6º sd 3.8º (large uncertainty/spread!)
  • Winds light NW  5-8 mph

A heat wave is on tap for much of next week.  (defined as temps >= 90º for 3 or more consecutive days).
