As we begin the third week in May, we will once again stay dry. That makes a deficit of 1.56″ of rainfall for the month. It isn’t cause for concern just yet, but parts of the region are now classified as abnormally dry.
Conditions today will be nothing short of spectacular.
Sun will mix with clouds on Wednesday as high pressure is beginning to settle in behind yesterday’s cold front, slashing temperatures like it were a fire sale.
Temperatures on the other hand are very similar, already soaring into the upper 70s and low 80s.
The new work week begins right where the last one left off, with more above average warmth.
As we end the first full week of May, the Delaware Valley stays dry and unseasonably warm. Highs will average 10 degrees above normal under mostly sunny skies.
A spokesman for the NJ Department of Environmental Protection says it will take about a year and cost more than $120 million.
After a brief dip in the mercury today, the heat is back starting Thursday – and by the weekend, it’s going to feel like mid-summer here in Philadelphia!
Wednesday is going to be the worst day of the week – you know the weather is getting nicer when you can say that mostly cloudy and mid 70s is the ‘worst’!
At the shore this weekend we expect partly sunny skies on Saturday with a high in the mid 60s. Sunday looks better with mostly sunny skies and highs in the low 70s with light wind.
As we begin the month of May, it’s certainly not going to feel very much like it outside today.
Despite more clouds and cooler temperatures, today is not going to be a bad day; just not as stellar as yesterday.
Get out and enjoy it; the rest of the work week won’t be as nice.
High pressure is building in for the next couple of days, and Tuesday and Wednesday are going to be winners!
Today stayed cool and cloudy but the showers mainly missed us to the west, so at least we didn’t need to break out the rain gear. The next four days will be evenly divided between lovely and… not so lovely.
