Week ahead: Irma to bring showers to Philly

We are starting our Tuesday, September 12, 2017 with the remnants of Irma south of MI, and heading north.

A couple of showers linger Thursday morning but we dry out Thursday evening. This will prevent overnight temperatures from getting cool, so expect lows back in the 70s with highs in the low 90s and heat index values approaching 100 again by Saturday and Sunday.

While at this point we can not entirely rule out a lingering shower Saturday, it will be primarily dry as high pressure builds back into the region. This will keep the chance for passing showers, drizzle and light rain around through Wednesday morning. Wednesday is looking cloudy with isolated showers developing as a disturbance, in conjunction with what's left of Irma, moves through.

High pressure should reestablish itself this weekend with a fair amount of sun, quite a bit of humidity and unseasonably warm temperatures, as highs will probably be up around 80!

Honda is stopping production this afternoon due to expected weather conditions associated with the remnants of Hurricane Irma. Throughout the first half of the day, our sky will be partly to mostly cloudy. Jose to likely remain over the Atlantic. It's definitely more of an unsettled pattern to end the week. There will be a more humid feel to the air with the increased cloud cover.

Remnants of Irma will also merge with a cold front from Canada, allowing for the possibility of a few rumbles of thunder.
