While not as mild as last weekend, temperatures will be close to average and we’ll see lots of sun through the holiday weekend, making for a pleasant Easter holiday for travelers and egg hunters!
Today was bright but cold across the region, with temperatures averaging more than 10 degrees below normal and a gusty breeze making it feel even worse! But the good news is that we are entering into a period of quiet weather.
With sub-freezing temperatures tomorrow morning, a Freeze Warning has been issued for the area. If you have any cold-sensitive plants outdoors, you may want to consider covering them or moving them inside to ensure no damage.
But before we get to the nice warm weekend weather, let’s talk about our one stumbling block – a cold front moving into the area and stalling tomorrow will deliver more cloud cover and the chance for a few showers here and there, mainly off to the north and west, but we can’t rule them out anywhere!
The sun returned just in time for the Phillies home opener, though it will be blustery and a bit chilly during the game.
It has been a cold and dreary Friday across the region, with spotty sprinkles around, and more may roll through before we kickstart our weekend!
Well, it’s March 25th, and we’re tracking snow. Would we expect anything less from this winter?
Big changes lie behind that front, and my advice is not to pack away the winter gear just yet!
March is typically a volatile month as spring and winter duke it out across the area, and the battle between seasons will be felt in a pronounced way this weekend!
But the most noticeable impact from this storm will be the brutal blast of cold air that will race in behind the front.
We continue to monitor a developing system for Sunday night and Monday that looks like one of our bigger winter storms of this stormy season.
After a frigid Friday, temperatures rebound ever so slightly as we welcome in March this weekend, but we will also welcome yet another winter storm, our 15th of the season.
Snow piles remain and anything you see on the ground now will be with us for some time, as much colder air plunges into the region from the arctic.
Warm air made a spring-like grand entrance back into the area today with a band of heavy rain and thunderstorms.
Many of us woke up this morning to fresh falling snow, but we finished out the afternoon in sunshine and with climbing temperatures.
