Today has gotten off to beautiful, warm start for this time of year! A weak cold front slowly moving through the region is cause some clouds to mix with sunshine this morning. But dry conditions remain as lift is currently too weak this front. Some sunshine with more west-southwest winds, will help temperatures rise into the lower or middle 70s over much of region this afternoon. Which around 10 degrees warmer than normal for the end of October.
However, a wave of low pressure developing along the cold front will enhance more lift,-leading to more cloud cover and numerous showers around the region later this afternoon and evening. A widespread, heavy rainfall is not currently anticipated. But with the airmass becoming warmer and unstable, some showers and thunderstorms with heavy downpours and frequent lightning are possible. The Storm Prediction Center even has marginal risk for isolated thunderstorms with damaging wind gusts for parts of West-Central NJ and Eastern PA.
