Discussion

Heavy showers and thunderstorms crossed Pennsylvania last night riding from west-to-east across a warm frontal boundary zone and there will be more heavy rain between later today and tomorrow night. In fact, much of the Mid-Atlantic region will see an inch or two of additional rainfall by later tomorrow night as a strong cool front reaches the east coast. That front should push all of the rain activity just far enough to our south and east this weekend to allow for pretty decent weather around here in the Philly metro region although clouds and showers could hang on for awhile along coastal sections of South Jersey and Delaware. Temperatures have been below normal during the past couple of days, but it should feel more like summer today and tomorrow as we are now in a “warm sector” air mass following the passage of a warm frontal system.
