This will allow for some drier air to briefly build in to provide humidity relief for the Philadelphia Metro and areas north and west. But this drier airmass may not make it as far south as Central Delaware or to the Jersey Shore.
It will be hot regardless, with high temperatures set to climb back into the 90s after a week-long break from the extreme heat.
An isolated thunderstorm is possible Monday afternoon, mainly concentrated near the frontal boundary over Delaware and coastal New Jersey.
Humidity levels will undulate over the next several days as the frontal stalls out and slowly wiggles around.
Expect the chance for a spotty thunderstorm on Wednesday, otherwise, the region’s next best chance of rain materializes on Thursday as a much stronger cold front sweeps through the region.
This will make for a quiet and comfortable to close to July on Friday, but not without the possibility of strong storms and some heavy downpours on Thursday.MORE NEWS: Fourth Stimulus Check: Is Another Relief Payment Coming?
