A frontal zone is impacting the region, bringing an end to the very hot and humid weekend weather we endured. After reaching the 90s over the weekend, temperatures were a bit cooler on Monday – though readings still climbed to the 80s with a fair amount of humidity. We’ve taken a more substantial step downward over the last 12 hours and readings will only reach the 70s today and tomorrow.
The trade-off for the cooler weather, unfortunately, is a period of unsettled weather today…which will linger into the first part of Wednesday.
Showers moving along the frontal boundary have been impacting the area since last night (beginning with a period of strong/severe t-storms during late evening which even prompted a tornado warning for the area) and will continue to do so throughout the day today and into tonight…before gradually shifting offshore on Wednesday.
We’ll have to be on the lookout for a period of torrential rain during the day today as a wave of low pressure develops along the boundary and crosses very near to the Cape – bringing an enhancement to the rain as it takes advantage of the very moist air mass in place.
