PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — We are dealing with truly a half-and-half weekend on our hands. Today will feature GORGEOUS, summer-like sunshine with highs in the 80s once again. High Pressure over the Atlantic continues to pump in the heat providing us with a southwest flow.
Sunday will be a completely different story — raw, drizzly with clouds and showers. A backdoor cold front will swing through with temperatures likely falling into the 40s by Sunday afternoon as an east wind takes over.
A strong area of low pressure and the attendant cold front will then approach Sunday night into Monday bringing heavy rainfall, rumbles of thunder and gusty winds. As it looks right now, some of the heaviest rain will arrive during the morning commute on Monday. Many areas could pick up 1-2″ of rainfall raising the potential for urban, small stream and poor drainage flooding.
We will continue to keep you posted, but for now — get outside and enjoy this stunning weather!
