BLOG: Seasonable Start To May
By Justin Drabick
The overall weather pattern this weekend kept temperatures right where they should be for this time of year. The average high temperature in early May is in the upper 60s. High temperatures today made it into the upper 60s and will be again tomorrow.
A slow moving cold front will impact the Delaware Valley over the next few days with some shower chances.
The front will not pass through until Wednesday but until then, some spotty showers may develop Monday and Tuesday, especially north & west of Philadelphia. These shower chances will be small.
Skies will remain mostly cloud on Monday and some peeks of sun are possible on Tuesday. We will get a brief surge of warm air on Tuesday ahead of the front. Highs on Tuesday will reach the upper 70s and possibly 80 in some spots if enough sunshine breaks out.
Rain chances along with a possible thunderstorm will increase later on Tuesday as the front approaches. The steadiest rain looks to develop late Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The chance for some showers will continue into Wednesday afternoon.
As the front passes Wednesday AM, temperatures cool down into the low to mid 60s for highs on Wednesday. Drier conditions return for Thursday and Friday with highs near average in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees.
