The region will continue to warm up on Wednesday into the mid 60s.
This combined with sunshine and low humidity will make for an awesome day.
By Thursday, the area is likely to hit the 70 degree mark for the first time in four months.
Along the immediate coastline highs will remain cooler during this time frame and will fail to reach the above-mentioned levels due to the influence of a still frigid 40 degree Atlantic Ocean.
Dry conditions prevail through the week until a cold front near the area on Friday and yields the chance for spotty rain showers.
The front may hang nearby on Saturday to generate a few more showers.MORE NEWS: Pennsylvania's Democratic Senate Race Raises Simmering Divisions Inside Party
