After an active period from Thursday through Saturday with scattered to widespread thunderstorms, another cold front is on the way which will bring up chances for storms yet again Tuesday and Wednesday!
You can see our next storm system is already coming around the bend, which again like I posted last night(https://northeasternnjwx.wordpress.com/2012/08/12/pattern-change-on-the-way/ ) will help to continue break down the Summer 2012 weather pattern.
Today will be sunny and seasonable with highs in the lower 80s interior to mid to upper 80s elsewhere, with low humidity and comfortable conditions, lows tonight will drop down to similar levels of last nights, in the upper 50s over NE PA to upper 60s along the coast, lower to mid 60s in between.
Tomorrow should be mainly dry but will feature increasing humidity ahead of the next cold front and storms system, the chance for storms begins to occur in the afternoon hours, mainly for western sections like Central and East PA , while eastern portions like NJ and NYC/Philly will sat pretty dry besides a chance at an isolated thunderstorm. Highs in the low 80s NE PA and mid to upper 80s elsewhere, it will be more uncomfortable than today.

Here is heading into early afternoon Tuesday and isolated to scattered showers and storms begin to develop and move into our western sections.
It really doesn’t look to become more widespread until Tuesday night from west to east , this front will again be slow-moving which has been the theme lately, so widespread showers and storms are expected through the day Wednesday
Here we are around 10 pm Tuesday night and this is when things become more widespread, im not impressed with a severe weather threat, the main threat will be heavy rainfall and some stronger storms with hail and gusty winds possible, this will be along a pre frontal trough
A break is expected Wednesday morning into early afternoon before the actual cold front comes through, if we can get some sunshine the severe threat will rise dramatically Wednesday, the Storm prediction Center has placed the area under a slight risk , advertising the potential.
Then thunderstorms become widespread agin in the afternoon hours as the front crawls east bound, it will again hit the Bermuda high and a flow that is parallel to it so it will be forced to slow down, so training storms will once again be a threat.
Finally Wednesday night into Thursday the front will clear out, the flow will turn more Northwesterly and a nice drop i humidity will take place.
Another cold front will come through on Friday and Saturday which will bring in another chance of storms and a significant drop in temperatures for this weekend!
