Wednesday also marks nine straight days with no rain across the Philadelphia region.
And by Thursday, we’re likely to hit the 70 degree mark for the first time in 4 months — with temperatures expected to hit 72 degrees in Philadelphia. Along the immediate coastline highs will remain in the low 60s due to the influence of a still frigid 40 degree Atlantic Ocean.READ MORE: All-Stars Kreider, Fox Lead Rangers Past Flyers 3-2
Dry conditions will prevail across the region through the week until a cold front nears the area on Friday and yields the chance for spotty rain showers during the day.
Temperatures will fall up to 20 degrees by Saturday afternoon, winds will also play a role in making it feel a lot colder. Our temperatures this weekend return to near average with slightly colder temperatures expected early next week.
Another system expected late Monday into Tuesday brings the chance of rain, possibly even starting as a wintry mix. Talk about a change.MORE NEWS: Residents, PennDOT Prepare For Bitter Cold, Measurable Snow In Approaching Winter Storm
