Weekend Forecast [6/21] Cold Front Moving Out; We Made It!

Briefing

  • Cold Front Clearing Now
  • Temperatures Comfortable
  • Shore Points Look Excellent

Current Conditions

Latest regional surface map shows cold front sliding through Philadelphia.

Satellite showing much of PA still under some cloud cover, but a lot of the cloud cover over C. Pa will dissipate this afternoon.

Latest Radar showing last line of showers slowly progressing eastward.

Precipitation Totals

The last 3 days have featured an incredible amount of rain as the stalled front squeezed every drop out of the atmosphere. A widespread 1-3″ of rain with some isolated areas in the Lehigh Valley, Montco/Delco and SNJ areas seeing up to 6″ of rain!


Forecast

Once the showers move through late morning, skies will clear and this afternoon, things will be quite comfortable in the area. Most of the region will be in the 70s this afternoon.

The theme will remain the same tomorrow. Comfortable, below-average temperatures region-wide, except perhaps there will be a few more 80 degree readings.

We start to warm up a little more as high pressure begins to build further east, wind direction a little more southerly.

Overall, the weekend looks like a nice reward after the week of constantly cloudy and rain conditions.


GEFS Forecast

Ensemble based GFS forecast through until Sunday shows building HP over the SE and OV. This will track eastward through the week. But more on that Sunday. Warmer temps will make their way into the area as high pressure builds, starting Sunday.

GFS Forecast

GFS showing the high pressure building through the Plains with upper level northwesterly flow bringing in the seasonable temps. This is a view of the 250mb winds, and you can see jet stream dipping in from Canada over PA/NY, ushering in some of those cooler temps for the next several days. As this high pressure starts to slide east into next week, temps will continue to warm up.


Beach Forecast

Shifting gears a bit, the cold front will make its way through NJ later this afternoon, around 5-6PM. Until then conditions will remain cloudy with a chance of showers. Along with the rain comes some choppy seas. Small craft advisory in effect through today for much of NJ. Seas will be on the order of 3-5′ this afternoon.

There is also an elevated surf risk and moderate rip current risk

Water temps are primarily in the mid-upper 60s. The 68 degree line this morning cuts off near Belmar, and we see the 70 degree warm pool down by Cape May. If you are inclined for a warmer swim, Delaware Bay has temps in the mid 70s.


Quick Sneak Peek

The CPC 6-10 Day forecast shows a high probability of above average temps for next week. We may even see a 90 degree day!


That’s all we have for now. Showers with a cold front moving through right now and then comfortable weather for the weekend. Waves should calm down later this evening, making tomorrow and Sunday wonderful beach days. Don’t forget to bring the sunscreen! UV Index will be high despite the air temperatures!

Thank you for stopping by and reading.
