Discussion

A cool front will reach the east coast late tonight and this will generate more showers and thunderstorms in the Mid-Atlantic region to close out the work week. While there will be some rain-free time today, any rain that falls can come down heavily at times. The front should move just far enough to our south and east to promote clearing skies around here later tomorrow, but clouds and showers could linger along coastal sections of New Jersey. One final note, while the Perseid meteor shower peaks on Monday night, there can be some meteors visible each weekend night especially given the expected favorable sky conditions.
