PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The road to summer-like warmth begins Wednesday. Clouds will increase from the southwest, as a warmer air mass approaches.
Highs Wednesday will be in the upper 60s to near 70. A warm front, moving northward, will bring showers Wednesday night and into Thursday morning’s commute.
Thursday afternoon will be mostly cloudy, with a high near 70. After the warm front passes Friday, high temperatures will be close to 80 degrees.
The warm air will stay in place for Mother’s Day weekend. However, a weak cold front will bring a chance of a few scattered showers or a thunderstorm on Saturday with highs again near 80.
There is only a slight chance of a shower Mother’s Day with highs once again well above average, in the upper 70s to near 80.
