PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — We begin April with high hopes after March 2014 left three snowstorms in its wake.

Philadelphia ended the month nearly five degrees below normal in temperature.

April will bring temperatures above average (58 degrees) for a pleasant change.

However, there will be an increasing chance of rain this week as a storm over the Great Lakes gets closer.

We will kick off the month dry, Tuesday, with a high of 60 degrees. There will be a 30% change of a shower Wednesday, 40% chance Thursday, and 50% chance Friday. I do not expect a lot of rain this week, with .1”-.25”, per event, at best.

The rain chances will end Sunday, in the wake of a cold front.

The good news is…it will not be “cold” after that, as temperatures early next week look seasonable.

Enjoy the Sunshine,
