    NBC10 First Alert Weather: Partly Sunny and Muggy Tuesday Ahead

    We're in for a partly sunny and muggy Tuesday. NBC10 First Alert Weather meteorologist Krystal Klei has the forecast.

     

    (Published Monday, May 28, 2018)

    Memorial Day weekend may be an unofficial start to summer, but it will feel very summer-like from the heat and humidity to scattered thunderstorms. 

    You’ll need sunscreen, sunglasses and shade on Saturday. It will be a hazy, humid day with highs near 90. By evening some scattered thunderstorms are possible.
    A front will stall near our area will act as the focal point for scattered showers and storms.
    On Sunday and Monday skies will be mostly cloudy with thunderstorms possible mainly in the afternoon and evening. Highs both days will be in the 80s. Neither day will be a washout.

    The rain showers will continue through the first half of Tuesday with temperatures in the 7H


    A flash flood warning early Monday ended by first light, but cold and cloudy conditions are here to stay for the end of the long holiday weekend.

    The cold front initially slid into the region Sunday morning from the northeast. This combined with moisture and rain triggered heavy downpours, lightning and flash flooding over the Pennsylvania suburbs and in central New Jersey. In fact, some parts of Bucks and Mercer counties saw between 3 and 6 inches of rain in only a few hours. Water rescues were required.

    Memorial Day will be cloudy, but mostly dry as temps push into the mid to upper 70s for remembrances and parades. At the shore points, temps will be closer to 70 and we can't rule out a spotty shower.

    A Flash Flood Watch for much of the Southern half of our region was in place through 4 a.m. Monday morning.

    The rain was so heavy that the National Weather Service issued a series of Flash Flood Watches and Warnings through Sunday. A Flood Warning was issued for the Assunpink Creek in Trenton as well.

    The temperature in Philadelphia dropped into the upper 60s by the afternoon, while Atlantic City dipped below 65 degrees.

    The Delaware beaches remained one of the warmer spots with temperatures in the mid-70s by the evening.

    By Tuesday, the sun should return as temps push into the 80s. Tuesday will be considerably humid again, too.
