A cool front is moving through the region this morning and the change in air mass will be quite noticeable with lowering humidity and cooler temperatures. The front will stall out along the east coast and this may allow for some moisture to back into the region on Thursday and Friday in the form of clouds and showers. There is even the chance for a nor'easter type of system to form by Friday that would mostly affect New England and its chances for development will be aided by some very warm waters sitting off the New England coastline. Around here, the greatest chance for showers over the next couple of days will be in eastern sections towards the Jersey Shore, but they are also possible along the I-95 corridor. High temperatures today will likely reach the 80's, but may actually hold in the 70's for the next couple of days and there will be good sleeping weather tonight with overnight lows dipping to the upper 50's in some N and W suburban locations. The normal high temperature for Philly on this date is 87 degrees.
Elsewhere, the Atlantic Ocean tropical scene is getting active again as a wave that moved off the western African coast a couple of days ago has now reached tropical depression status. It very well could become Tropical Storm Dorian over the next day or two as it moves slowly westward across the tropical Atlantic Ocean. It will encounter some dry air in the near term, but should it survive that which is increasingly likely, it could reach the Bahamas or western Caribbean Islands in a week to ten days.
