PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The weather needs a new calendar. It’s acting like April even though we are deep into winter.

This afternoon temperatures reached the upper 60’s in advance of a cold front so strong that it could pull warmth to that level into the area.

Tonight the warm and cold air fight it out, with our area on the receiving end of heavy rain and strong, gusty winds.

A flash flood watch for an inch or more of rain covers Pennsylvania and a high wind warning for gusts between 40 and 60 mph covers New Jersey and Delaware.

Loose objects could become missiles in the wind and the recently frozen ground and waterways could flood from runoff.

By sunrise, it’s a whole other story.

The weather and calendar match, temperatures will fall through the 30’s, the winds will blow to about 45 mph and we await an even colder Friday with a moisture starved clipper system hoping to drop a few snow flurries.

The weekend looks equally cold.
