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.
Seems like winter began in the Delaware Valley before Winter officially arrived. The first flakes of the season accumulated on grassy surfaces tonight from the Poconos to the city and beyond.
An arctic shot of cold air is settling in, with no plans of going anywhere for a while.
The 60s will be sticking around for the next few days. Enjoy them while they last.
A weak cold front sits off to the west, and the limited precipitation it is packing continues to fizzle, leaving the Delaware Valley with mainly cloudy skies for Wednesday.
Highs on Tuesday will run several degrees above average, and it will feel closer to early October than early November. It’s going to be a dry day as well, so there’s no excuse not to get out and vote!
The weather you must know, before Trick-or-Treating you go…
Tomorrow, the rain is not as much of a threat but showers will be with us at any time – tomorrow will be most notable for the wind and the chill. Highs will barely scrabble to the mid-50′s, but with winds gusting to 30mph, it will feel no better than the 40′s for much of the day.
Shower chances will increase tonight with low temperatures in the 50s.
Off to the west sits a slow-moving cold front, with a large swath of rain. As this front meanders our way, it will spell rain and even some thunderstorms for much of the region. A breeze will also pick up this afternoon.
Friday is going to be a gray, damp, chilly day.
If you can, get out an enjoy the weather on Thursday! It’s not going to last for very long.
A high pressure system will remain in control for Thursday, keeping skies mostly sunny with highs a bit cooler near 70 degrees.
