A developing Nor’easter will impact the area over the next couple of days with heavy rain, gusty winds and even snow for parts of the Delaware Valley.
This latest storm comes with terrible timing as millions of people hit the roads and the skies in preparation for the holiday.
Shower chances will increase tonight with low temperatures in the 50s.
A high pressure system will remain in control for Thursday, keeping skies mostly sunny with highs a bit cooler near 70 degrees.
Overnight, the heavy rain will continue to push north through New Jersey, with showers and storms also moving through Philadelphia and surrounding suburbs as a cold front moves through.
Some small stream and urban flooding is possible tonight in any slow moving showers and thunderstorms.
A stalled front will linger over our area Tuesday keeping the threat of showers, storms, and localized flooding, especially in the afternoon.
The combination of a strong disturbance and more sunshine will increase the chance of scattered, but locally strong to severe thunderstorms Thursday. We are in a “Slight Risk” for severe weather in Philadelphia and nearby suburbs, meaning that any thunderstorm could produce strong, damaging winds and the threat of hail.
It will certainly feel warmer and steamier, but we also have the threat for showers and thunderstorms around through the afternoon. But these are just an appetizer, so to speak.
Warm air stays in place Tuesday, but a frontal boundary will back into our area from the Northeast, bringing more clouds and a possible shower or storm.
Friday will be a beauty, with plenty of sunshine and a high around 70 degrees.
As a strong cold front approaches from the west, rain will spread across our area.
A taste of summer will be with us this weekend.
In the wake of a memorable winter, it does not take a lot to make us happy, weather-wise!
Temperatures will be well above the average high of 62 degrees right through early next week!
