Only a few days left until Christmas, and while precipitation will be falling leading up to the big day, it isn’t going to be the white stuff.
Yes, much of the Delaware Valley can expect to see some sunshine on Wednesday.
Partly sunny skies will return for Wednesday and it will be breezy with wind gusts up to 25 mph. However, high temperatures remain above average for one more day with highs in the lower 50s.
After a week of mostly cloudy skies, the stubborn clouds over the past few days finally gave way to some sunshine today.
Clouds will eventually give way to some sunshine this afternoon, but it will then disappear tonight just as quickly as it came, as a minor system will bring a few showers for Tuesday.
Clouds plus rain and snow showers are rotating around the large area of low pressure that brought the heavy rain, high winds and significant flooding yesterday.
A developing Nor’easter will impact the area over the next couple of days with heavy rain, gusty winds and even snow for parts of the Delaware Valley.
The heaviest rain will fall during the morning into early afternoon on Tuesday
Like a hairdryer blowing those wet strands, gusty winds will help Saturday’s inch of rain evaporate from the ground today. Good thing, since another soaking rain comes in starting very early on Tuesday.
After picking up around 1″ of rain on Saturday, the Delaware Valley will dry out for the second half of the weekend.
Expect some lingering low clouds, mist and fog early this evening, then skies will begin to clear out tonight, as a cold front moves through. A colder air mass will filter into the Delaware Valley behind the front with lows in the lower 30s tonight.
We’ll start off the holiday weekend with a chill!
It looks like a rain changing to snow event for the region on Wednesday and Wednesday night.
One more chilly day before a gradual (and well deserved) warm-up.
It was a day for parkas, mittens, hot chocolate and roaring fireplaces as the afternoon temperature didn’t rise above the freezing mark in Philadelphia – and with winds gusting over 30mph, it didn’t feel much warmer than the teens all day. This is drastic cold for the time of year – our normal high for November 18 is 54 degrees and our normal LOW is 39 – so we didn’t even come close.
