Back at it with the warmth today---but we'll need to do a little work to get there. Yesterday morning, many towns started the day in the upper 40s while today we are down in the low to mid 30s right now. As we step through the day clouds will take over the sky but despite a mostly cloudy day, the afternoon temps will be mild once again--reaching the mid 50s. Warm again tonight with cloudy skies out ahead of a cool front. That front will toss a few showers our way toward daybreak Wednesday.
Wednesday marks midweek and also a day of transition with a cool front crossing the region. We start the day warm--like Monday warm--low 50s as well as clouds/showers. Those showers will depart by 11am...sadly, that's about the time the 50s will bounce out of town as well. Look for some sun by afternoon.
You will have all sorts of sunshine by Thursday as high pressure returns to the region. December temps will also return with afternoon highs barely reaching 40 by the afternoon. Sunshine prevails again on Friday.
Here We Go Again--C-3PO..Return Of the Jedi. The shiny metallic one speaks the truth as yet another lil winter storm takes a swipe at us today. Like yesterday, this won't be a blockbuster but rather a continue step into winter storm with a 5-7 hour burst of snow. Here are the storm deets:
Indeed it appears winter is off to a fast start and this week looks mighty wintry. The first of 3 winter storms is upon us right now with patches of snow, sleet, freezing rain & plain old rain. It's not a blockbuster event but the early morning timing will certainly give you a case of the Mondays. As we step into the afternoon, look for pockets of drizzle along the coast and farther inland that drizzle will cling & freeze to untreated surfaces. Chilly & raw for much of the day with temps between 30-40.
Watch any football today? Winter weather was certainly the story across the country and for numerous games in the NFL. The snow in Philly added up to 6-12" for a wide swatch southern Jersey, southeastern PA and Delaware. That's the same system moving our way, but for us, we'll escape the wrath of the heaviest precipitation as just a bit of snow and ice move in.
