We are stuck in this tropical air mass, thanks to the remnants of Isaac.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to fire around the state this evening, with some lingering overnight. Since the dewpoints/moisture levels are so high, downpours are possible with any thunderstorm. This will be the same set up tomorrow. Expect another round of scattered showers and thunderstorms, with some of them producing heavy rain.
The center of what was Isaac will finally get pushed out of here Thursday. However, a couple of thunderstorms are still possible in the heat of the day. That’s right, heat. It will be warm and muggy tomorrow, but temperatures are going right back up to near 90 degrees Thursday and Friday.
Another front will move our way this weekend. It’s exact timing will depend on its interaction with strengthening tropical storm Leslie. Leslie will move toward or over Bermuda Friday, then keep strengthening as it charges closer to North America – maybe northern New England or eastern Canada. It won’t make landfall near us, but will significantly kick up the surf along the NJ, DE, and MD beaches this weekend. There is also another tropical storm – Michael – way out in the Atlantic. It looks like Michael will not be an issue to land. We will keep you updated.
When the front does arrive, it will bring some showers and thunderstorms, as well as much cooler air behind it. Highs will drop to the low 80s over the weekend, then may only top out in the upper 70s early next week behind it.
