Mike Linden's Forecast | Tropical Storm Irma heads north
Before we jump to NEPA weather, let's chat about Irma. Now officially a Tropical Storm, Irma will continue to advances northward and slowly lose strength. For Georgia and South Carolina, heavy downpours have made for flash flooding. Florida is still left picking up the pieces as the then hurricane has left a record number of people without power in the Sunshine State. While the center of the storm is still quite a ways away from the northeast, Pennsylvania will feel the effects of Irma in the coming days.
Daytime highs will get a nice little bump up thanks to the previously mentioned warm, moist air heading northward (Irma, in case you missed it). This will keep daytime highs in the mid to high 70s for the rest of the work week BUT we'll also see thunderstorms too. Storms, if we see them, don't look to be widespread but we may see some on the stronger side heading into the second half of the work week.
