The combination of temperatures in the lower 90s and high humidity values this afternoon will produce heat indices in the upper 90s for many locations. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon and evening, especially for areas along and north of I-95. A cold front is expected to move through the region late Tuesday bringing much more widespread showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening hours. These storms may be strong to severe and produce heavy rainfall. Stay cool out there!

Happy Tuesday all! We are looking at a quiet forecast today with temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s. If you are headed to the beach, note that there is moderate risk for dangerous rip currents along the Delaware and New Jersey shores. Wave heights from 2-4 feet with longer periods due in part to Tropical Storm Chris off the North Carolina Coast will likely develop stronger rip currents. Know the signs to help spot dangerous rip currents and enjoy a safe day at the beach. To view the forecast for your beach and to learn more visit our beach forecast page: https://www.weather.gov/beach/phi.

Chris is expected to become a Category 1 hurricane later today, but is NOT expected to directly impact our area weather-wise as it begins moving away from the coast to the northeast over the next couple of days. However, Chris will cause a significant rip current threat over the next few days in addition to high surf, rough waters, and increased swells.
