The rain is gone with a warmer day ahead for Wednesday. A cold front is pushing off the coast this morning. Some clouds will great the day, but instead of Rain with SE winds and 60's...Clouds will be breaking during the morning, with partly sunny skies developing, with a warmer drier west wind will be in place. Highs will be in the 70's and lwr 80's by afternoon. A much better beach day over all, with temps near 75-80 at the beach. Watch for rip currents as the seas may still be a bit choppy. The only issue is the upper low which still lies across Canadian border. It will supply the cooler air aloft, so any breaking sun will likely provide the fuel for more clouds to spring up during the afternoon. Also a weak cold front will be pushing into the region during the afternoon which could be a trigger for a few scattered showers or a thunderstorm to pop up. Any sort of storm or downpour may contain some small hail because of this cooler air above our heads. Once this front passes through, skies will begin to clear later at night, which should make for better viewing of the Perseid meteor showers which will be peaking during the early morning hours before dawn Thursday morning. Best time to catch a view will be after midnight tonight away from city light pollution.
High pressure slides in for Thursday and Friday with sunny to partly sunny skies. Thursday will be nice in the 70's to near 80. But signs are pointing to much warmer air shifting in on Friday with highs climbing into the mid 80's! A weak front arrive on Saturday with partly sunny skies and provide just enough lift to trigger a scattered shower or thunderstorm. Highs will remain warm and humid well in the 80's with a summery feel for the weekend. Once that front is through we are off to the races! High pressure will build in for the second half of the weekend. Mostly sunny skies Sunday with a seabreeze at the coast. Sunday will be slightly cooler but not by much. Still near 80-85 degrees. A flatter flow will be in place with the jetstream and this will bring in much warmer and more humid air to start off next week with temperatures nearing 90 with a possible heat wave if the heat can hold right into Wednesday.
