One Last Dry Day, Showers And Warm Surge To Follow
By Geoff Bansen
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The first half of Wednesday will be dry and pleasant with mostly sunny skies. Highs will reach 70 today. In the afternoon, clouds will increase from the west ahead of our next warm front. Showers associated with the front, will move in this evening, with an embedded thunderstorm possible.
Those showers will extend into Thursday, but should begin to diminish by tomorrow afternoon. Skies will be mainly cloudy, highs around 70. Our warm front then moves north of us, ushering in some very warm temperatures from the south. Friday we will approach 80, with a mix of clouds and sun.

Saturday showers return with an isolated thunderstorm as well. The showers look to be mostly scattered in nature, and it will be mild, so it won’t be a complete washout. Highs will once again hover around 80. Sunday should be the better of the two weekend days, with some sun and upper 70s for high temperatures.
This Day in Weather History
1989: Thirty-two cities in the central and eastern U.S. reported record low temperatures for the date, and 24 hour snowfall totals of 7.2 inches at Buffalo NY and 10.7 inches at Rochester NY were records for the month of May. While northerly winds ushered unseasonably cold air into the eastern U.S., temperatures warmed rapidly in the Great Plains Region, reaching the 90s in Kansas. The temperature at Manhattan KS soared from a low of 30 degrees to a high of 88 degrees.
