PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — This will be a remarkable week of temperatures that includes daytime highs on six separate days that span in the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. The Philadelphia region will also see everything from rain to snow to thunderstorms.
Gone are the 70’s we recently enjoyed. Instead, the Philly area will kick off this last week of March with highs 20 to 25 degrees below average. Typically, we are in the upper 50’s this time of year, but Monday will feel very winter-like with highs in the 30’s and wind chills in the teens and 20’s. There’s even a chance of snow showers and snow squalls Monday afternoon.Enhanced Risk For Severe Weather Across Philadelphia Region Monday Afternoon
Tuesday and Wednesday remain chilly as highs climb to the 40’s, still well below average. Sunny skies on Tuesday will give way to clouds on Wednesday. Temperatures on Wednesday morning will be below freezing, and as a warm-front lifts past our area, the region could see a wintry mix of snow and rain.All Eyes On Pennsylvania Primary As Tuesday's Election Day Approaches
