the south and east. impressive this evening it's a good thing we want rain not severe weather. one area in chester county we are watching and pop-ups developing in parts of the lehigh valley in bethlehem and hanover. and nothing severe here. but again these pop-up wherever they would like and then they slowly move along. so very heavy rain a quick 1 to 2 inches where they develop. that is probably the major concern not so much the wind or hail. the dew point is in the 70s that feels tropical or oppressive out there. and one ingredient that fuels storms and heavy downpours. temperature-wise, rain cooled but muggy in lancaster of 74 and 80s across much of the pennsylvania and a sea breeze in effect at the shore with 70s there and the sea breeze kicking in that stabilizes the atmosphere and a lot of storms fall apart and develop and push
to the south and east. upper level energy rotating through helping to spark the storms as well. as we go into the overnight hours tonight, they are slow moving and with that extreme humidity, many areas that see the downpours, get a quick 1 to 2 inches of rainfall in a short amount of time, the other threat with the downpours and thunderstorms that pop up, could have brief strong winds, 6:30 again north and west of philadelphia, and quiet in new jersey and delaware. at 9:00 tonight, slow moving towards wilmington and scattered in variety. dry south and east, and the line falls apart as it heads into southern new jersey, and by tomorrow morning at 7:00 a.m., lingering clouds and staying rather humid to start our wednesday morning, we take a look at the dew points as we get into the afternoon on wednesday, the dew points dropping from the 70s where they are now, back into the middle to upper 50s,
going towards lunch time tomorrow afternoon, it's refreshing with the sunshine and clouds and big improvement on wednesday. if are you at the shore ocean 71 degrees and clouds in the morning and humid right through the lunch time hour and turning brighter in the afternoon and shore and drier with the humidity dropping and a high temperature of 80. high pressure from the north and west, bringing in the improvement. and thursday 87 and lots of sun and staying beautiful before the warm front kicks in on friday bringing in the humidity and pop-ups once again. the forecast after watching storms tonight less humid tomorrow and thursday nice and friday the humidity comes up with pop-up downpours and storms but should only be a one day affair. saturday we should bring the hupt back down and warm at 88
