PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — After reaching high temperatures in the mid 70s today, a good ten degrees above average, a cold front will bring changes starting tonight.
Expect some scattered showers around mainly during the early evening hours then skies will begin to clear late tonight, after the front passes. Behind the front, gusty northwest winds will develop ushering in a cooler air mass with lows tonight in the 40s.
The cool air settles into the mid-Atlantic on Wednesday with gusty northwest winds over 30 mph. Skies will be mostly sunny but high temperatures will drop back below average in the lower 60s.
The good news is, the cool air mass will modify on Thursday with highs back near average in the mid 60s with sunshine.
Friday will be even warmer as a warm front moves through the region. This will bring highs back above average in the lower 70s. However, the warm front will bring the chance for a few showers.
Today is also Earth Day, a day to take action to help protect the Earth. The day was founded on April 22, 1970 by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson. Because of Earth Day, the Clean Air & Water Act and the Endangered Specifies act was formed.
NASA is doing something cool today for Earth Day and they need you to make it happen. It’s called “Global Selfie” All you need to do is take a selfie with a sign saying where you are and post it on social media using #GlobalSelfie They will take your photos and build a mosaic of the Earth with them.
