We are transitioning into a more stormy/unsettled pattern after being quiet and dry in August and September and unfortunately we seem to be starting a trend where the biggest rain events come on Saturdays!
A cold front that came through and is bringing cool windy conditions today and tonight will come back north as low pressure develops along it and will bring all the unsettled weather that’s now to our south with it.
For tonight expect some periods of clouds but mostly dry conditions and cool conditions with lows falling into the mid 30s to low 40s widespread besides immediate coastal and urban areas where lows will be more like mid 40s
By tomorrow morning overcast skies should be in place of places like SE PA , SNJ , Delaware etc, and these overcast skies will gradually shift northward through the day with developing showers in southern areas during the afternoon, with winds changing east in combination with clouds and showers highs will only be in the mid 50s to low 60s
By tomorrow night steady soaking rain will invade our southern areas while rain chances increase for the rest of the area, lows will fall into the mid 40s to low 50s
By early Saturday morning most of the region will have a steady soaking rain with raw easterly winds
The rainfall is expected to last through the majority of the day Saturday with pretty heavy amounts widespread, generally 1-2 inches is expected for most of the area
This heavy swath of rain could shift a little north or a little south depending on exact track of the low but either way a majority of the area will see a heavy rainstorm Friday late afternoon through mid to late Saturday afternoon, highs on Saturday will be in the upper 50s to low 60s but lows will get colder Saturday night as a brief but strong push of polar air comes in with lows widespread in the 30s to low 40s
The unsettled weather will continue through much of the week next week with the exception of Sunday
