PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Breezy conditions remain a factor to round out the week across the Delaware Valley. A moisture-starved cold front crosses the region through Friday, touching off a few spotty snow showers, with the best chances north of Philadelphia.
A reinforcing shot of very cold air will fall in behind the cold front tonight and the region will get a legitimate blast of arctic air for what feels like the first time this winter.READ MORE: 14-Year-Old Boy Injured In North Philadelphia Shooting, Police Say
Before the front arrives watch for a mix of sun and clouds, with temperatures that are likely to jump into the low to mid-40s on Friday, so yet another above-average afternoon. The front will have limited moisture associated with it, but a few flurries or a spotty snow shower aren’t totally ruled out during the day.
Saturday will be more reminiscent of what we usually expect during January in Philadelphia with sunny skies but high temperatures only in the mid-30s.
Not much changes for Sunday as we get another day of sunny skies and breezy conditions with highs once again in the mid-30 range.
Winds will gust to near 30 mph Saturday and Sunday, so while actual air temperatures will be in the 30s it will feel like the 20s most of the weekend.Frustrated Lawmakers Allege Pennsylvania Health Department Failing To Provide Enough Vaccines For Suburban Philadelphia Counties
We are still tracking a storm system for early next week that could bring measurable snow to the region.
The onset of the storm could bring rain, snow and ice across the I-95 corridor.
There could be a period of just snow but precipitation does look to flip flop Monday night and into Tuesday morning. Details about timing, potential accumulation and the storm’s track are still being worked out.
Make sure to check back in with the CBS3 weather team on the latest forecast.
