Weather Outlook for June 6, 2017


Posted: June 7, 2017

Widespread, organized rainfall appears unlikely over the next week, and some sunshine may return to the state, at times, through the weekend.

A slow-moving trough over the Northeast will continue to slowly migrate away from the region through the end of the workweek. Widely scattered showers and thunderstorms will persist across the state, though some places may remain dry through the end of Friday. Another fast-moving disturbance will reach the area by Saturday, bringing a few showers and isolated thunderstorms during the day. Things should dry out by Sunday as a ridge of high pressure builds in over the region. Through Sunday, temperatures will hover near seasonal levels with afternoon high temperatures generally in the upper 60’s to upper 70’s and lows in the 50’s. By Monday, winds will shift to the southwest, which will bring milder air into the region. Parts of southeastern PA will see temperature readings in the low to mid 80’s on Monday and Tuesday afternoon. With humidity levels also on the rise, most of the state will feel more like July or August rather than early June by next Tuesday. A cold front will reach the state by the middle of next week, which will usher in cooler conditions as the middle of the month approaches. Current model guidance indicates that both temperature readings and precipitation totals will hover near seasonal levels through the remainder of June.
