Cloudy and cool conditions will be in place through tomorrow as the back door cold front is now west of the New York City and now Philadelphia metropolitan areas. As a result, a marine air mass is in full control over the region.
Today through tomorrow, expect overcast skies with the threat for widely scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms. The showers and thunderstorms will be capable of very heavy downpours at times thus leading to localized flash flooding and urban flooding. Winds will be from the east at 5 to 15 mph, increasing to 10 to 20 mph this afternoon through tomorrow. Temperatures this afternoon will rise into the lower to mid 60's along the coast and upper 60's to lower 70's throughout the rest of the region. Temperatures tomorrow will range from the mid 50's for lows and mid to upper 60's for highs.
The back door cold front will rapidly retreat on Friday with scattered to overcast cloud cover along with scattered showers and thunderstorms. The strongest thunderstorms will be capable of heavy downpours, frequent lightning, wind gusts over 50 mph, and hail. Temperatures will range from the mid 50's for lows and lower to mid 70's for highs.
High pressure will be in control Saturday on through Tuesday with clear skies to scattered cloud cover. Very pleasant weather conditions are expected with seasonably cool temperatures. Temperatures will range from the mid to upper 50's for lows and lower to mid 70's for highs through the end of the forecast period.
