Weather Blog: A Blast Of Winter
By Carol Erickson
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The coldest air of the season rides out of Canada on strong winds and makes a too early and too long trip to the Delaware Valley.
Temperatures on Saturday night will drop to the middle 20’s and winds will rise to the middle 30’s. That wicked combination puts wind chills into the teens.
A few lake effect snow flurries might even hang together as far south as Philadelphia early on Sunday morning. Otherwise, just race around looking for gloves, scarves, face masks and heavy coats for a blustery Sunday. Bring your pets in too, as they suffer in the cold as we do.
Monday stays cold and in the 30’s.
Tuesday warms up and clouds up. With temperatures in the 40’s, any precipitation from a potential coastal storm moving along the coast on Tuesday will come as rain.
The rain may continue into Wednesday, as well. At this point, it is still too early to tell the track, intensity and timing of any system that may – or may not – have impacts in the area. Temperatures and location will be key to precipitation type.
By Thursday, Thanksgiving, anything that might have arrived..other than your guests…will be gone, leaving us cold but dry.
