Possible gusty thunderstorms

The National Weather Service says a cold front that is currently cowing its way across Pennsylvania could trigger strong thunderstorms during the evening hours of Wednesday, July 23.

Those storms could contain brief heavy rain that might trigger flooding in poor drainage areas.

However, future simulated radar suggests most of those stronger storms will most likely affect central and eastern Pennsylvania. The stronger storms should dissipate before reaching South Jersey. The first bit of any rain may not reach the Jersey Shore until after sunset. Because temperatures will be off of their afternoon highs, the storms may not be as strong as earlier in the day by the time they reach the coast.

However, rain showers are likely during the overnight hours and through early afternoon on Thursday, July 24 while the cold front takes its time moving off the coast.

Total rainfall should total about one-quarter to one-half of an inch, according to the National Weather Service.

Today’s South Jersey mainland high is still forecast to climb to 91 degrees, with cooler temperatures along the Garden State Parkway and along the beaches of Atlantic and Cape May counties.

Seasonable temperatures in the mid- to upper-80s are forecast through Sunday with rain returning on Sunday evening.
