PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — For those of you that have off for Columbus Day, you couldn’t have asked for a nicer one!

It was a chilly start this morning — 40s in many spots — but temperatures are rebounding nicely now, and highs will soar into the 70s by this afternoon. Clouds will be at a premium, so grab those sunglasses before you head out the door. Winds will also be light, the third ingredient for a top 10 day! Enjoy it, because changes are coming later over the next several days.

A pair of fairly weak fronts will be paying the Delaware Valley a visit this week, the first tomorrow and the next on Friday. Tuesday will feature more clouds and scattered showers, but there will likely be a few sunny breaks as well. The front will allow temperatures to ‘fall’ back to fall-like for the midweek, but Friday’s cold front will drop them even further…into the 50’s by the weekend!
