A tranquil start to the week can be expected throughout the Philadelphia and New York City metropolitan areas with high pressure in control. However, a series of disturbances lining up to the west will keep the threat for an isolated shower in the forecast into next weekend. Temperatures though will fluctuate to near normal to above normal through the forecast period with each passing disturbance.
High pressure will produce clear skies to scattered clouds through Monday evening. Winds will be from the south at 5 to 10 mph. Temperatures will rise into the upper 60's to lower 70's over the interior and in urban locations, lower to mid 60's along the coast with the coolest locations over Long Island.
