Late-Day Thunder

Sunshine prevails today along with rather hot conditions. Showers and thunderstorms developing across the mountains during the afternoon will drift eastward into the Foothills by late-afternoon and evening. Saturday looks like a dry day, with widely-separated PM showers and thunderstorms on Sunday. Looking ahead, it looks increasingly hot toward midweek.

Forecast Discussion

First off, a word about Tropical Storm Fay. Fay is located south of the Jersey shore and will be moving into the greater New York City area tonight before weakening over interior New England on Saturday. It will have no impacts on local weather.

Today might just have the best opportunity for late-day showers and thunderstorms of the next 5-days or so, as a cold front approaches from the west. Until those storms fire to our west and head down the mountain, expect lots of sunshine with rather hot temperatures.

The front slips east of the area early on Saturday, and with some drier air immediately following the front, we anticipate a dry, sunny Saturday around the Foothills.

An upper level disturbance pushing into the Mid-Atlantic region on Sunday might spark a few hit-or-miss PM showers and thunderstorms on Sunday.

For next week, weak upper level troughing along the Eastern Seaboard will get replaced by a broad upper level ridge. That means mostly dry and increasingly hot conditions heading into Wednesday and Thursday. After all though, it is July.
