Of all the advisories and warnings and watches and alerts we’ve had to deal with this crummy year of weather, this is my favorite one – a pastel advisory.
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!
It will warm up a bit Saturday with mostly sunny skies and a high of 66 degrees.
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.
Talk about a shock to the system! Our potent Spring storm has thankfully retreated out to sea, and now we’re back in a chill more typical of late February.
Behind the front, a wind switch to the northwest will usher in colder temperatures Tuesday night. As the cold air meets up with the remaining moisture, the showers could end as a brief period of wet snow late Tuesday night, mainly in the Poconos and Lehigh Valley.
The countdown is on! One last very mild day remains in our forecast before a potent Spring storm slices through all the warmth we’ve built up. Daytime highs will flirt with 80 degrees Monday, especially where there’s more sunshine.
Sunday was the first 80 degree day of the year as high temperatures made it into the low 80s for inland areas.
Where are we? In San Diego? Temperatures and weather conditions on Saturday were perfect. Today, just about as nice.
A nice start to the weekend weather-wise makes it back to back weekends with sunshine and pleasant conditions.
We got to 79 in Philadelphia today, a very welcome 79, the first warm day of the year.
Anyone else squealing with glee in anticipation of the weekend?
Our average high temperature for this time of year is in the low 60s, but will remain above average over the next five days. The forecast stays quiet for tonight and Thursday as high pressure controls our weather.
The sun returned just in time for the Phillies home opener, though it will be blustery and a bit chilly during the game.
A low pressure system will continue to track into southern Canada today, allowing for drier weather to return.
