Stormy End to Hot and Humid Pattern

A marine air mass will take hold by Friday and remain in place through Tuesday.

Tired of the hazy, hot, and humid weather yet?  Yes, I know I am.  Bring on the snow and ice please!

Okay, so perhaps most of you are not ready for snow and ice yet, but the end of this hazy, hot, and humid weather pattern is coming to an end and with the potential for some rather impressive thunderstorms.

A few lingering thundershowers will exit this morning as one disturbance lifts into the northwestern Atlantic.  Low clouds will burn off later this morning followed by clear skies to scattered cloud cover.  Winds will be from the southwest at 5 to 10 mph.  Temperatures will spike into the lower to mid 90's over the Philadelphia metropolitan area, upper 80's to lower 90's over the New York City metropolitan areas, and mid to upper 80's over Long Island.

This evening on through tomorrow, showers and strong to severe thunderstorms will develop and become widespread.  The strongest thunderstorms will be capable of wind gusts over 50 mph, frequent lightning, hail, and very heavy downpours.  An extremely isolated tornado is possible but unlikely.  Low temperatures will range from the upper 60's to lower 70's over the interior and lower to mid 70's in urban areas and along the coast.  Winds will back from the southwest to northwest at 5 to 10 mph by tomorrow afternoon.

A marine air mass will take hold by Friday and remain in place through Tuesday. Scattered to broken cloud cover and periods of isolated to widely scattered showers will be a threat.  Low temperatures will range from the upper 50's to lower 60's.  High temperatures will range from the upper 70's over Long Island, upper 70's to lower 80's over the New York City metropolitan area, and lower to mid 80's over the Philadelphia metropolitan area.
