The umbrellas will be handy tonight and this weekend as more showers move through the Philadelphia region.
We can expect the heaviest rain to fall overnight into Saturday morning as a warm front arrives from the southwest. Temperatures Saturday won’t climb out of the 60s and an afternoon thunderstorm is possible. A cold front will then stall over the area Saturday night and bring more unsettled weather for Easter Sunday.
Sunday will bring warmer temperatures in the 70s with some sun, but a shower or storm still cannot be ruled out. Look for temperatures to top off near 80 early next week!
In other news, today marks the 41st celebration of EARTH DAY. On April 22 in 1970 a senator from Wisconsin founded the first Earth Day. This led to the creation of several laws including the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts.
Use today as a reminder to be kind to our planet by recycling, planting trees, and using green energy and green products whenever possible. You can also get involved by building a garden, organizing local events and reducing your carbon footprint. More info can be found at
