Stormy later, but dry, sunny, and cool for several days
It’s currently mostly sunny at the shore, but clouds will increase later ahead of showers and thunderstorms.
A broken line of thunderstorms is currently in eastern Pennsylvania, heading generally east. More storms are expected to develop during the afternoon and evening hours ahead of a cold front currently situated near western Pennsylvania that will pass through overnight. Some of the storms could be strong. There is a slight chance of severe storms everywhere but the coast, according to the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center. Slightly cooler today than yesterday, but the humidity remains until the cold front clears the coast.
A dry, comfortable northwest wind tomorrow will usher in high pressure, delivering a sunny weekend. Any remaining clouds should dissipate by the early afternoon hours. Temperatures throughout the state will be around 70 Friday, in the upper 60s on Saturday, and moderating somewhat to the low 70s on Sunday.
BOAT/BEACH: There are no marine advisories. Breakers and ocean swells are about three to four feet. Long period swells from Tropical Storm Gabrielle have arrived and will remain until tomorrow. Ocean temperatures are in the upper 60s to low 70s. South winds at 10 to 15 mph. There is a moderate risk of rip currents today and tomorrow. Be advised that lifeguards are off-duty at most beaches, so exercise extreme caution in the water.
