Count on a sunny weekend ahead. Seriously.

Friday should be a clear one, too, save nighttime storms that could roll in before midnight and persist in the region until Saturday morning, according to the National Weather Service.

But skies are set to clear up in the morning, giving way to dry weather and pleasant temperatures Saturday and Sunday.

Bet on a high of 91 in the Philadelphia area on Friday, but the mercury shouldn't exceed the mid-80s over the weekend. Lows should hover around 70 on Friday and the mid-60s on Saturday and Sunday.

Forecasters do call for a chance of storms Monday and Tuesday next week before skies clear up again Wednesday. Expect temperatures to stay in the low- to mid-80s throughout the week.

Weekend forecasts for the city, shore and Poconos are listed below, according to the NWS:


Friday: Count on mostly sunny skies with a high near 91.

Friday Night: Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to move in between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m. Showers are likely after that. The low is expected at 70.
