Plenty of sunshine today with afternoon temperatures rising into the 80s for most of the area. The wind will turn more southerly this afternoon, and this will allow for some cooling along the coast.

Don't know about you, but we are loving the current weather! Temperatures will be on the rise through Monday, providing a break from the cool, wet weather we've generally been dealing with over the past few weeks. In fact, most places are forecast to top 90 degrees on Monday. Return flow will bring more moisture to the region and higher dew points starting on Sunday, so we will likely be dealing with high heat indices by Monday. Have a great weekend everyone.

Storms last night produced an interesting outflow boundary that moved south across New Jersey over night. An outflow boundary (a.k.a gust front) is essentially a boundary between cooler air descended from a thunderstorm that sinks and spreads outward due to to its higher density than surrounding air. The radar detects insects and/or dust that are lofted into the air by the wind along this outflow, which is why you can see it as a line on the radar loop here.
