Saturday was an average late-January day(to the t); after a morning low of 26 at Philly Airport the high reached 41 in the afternoon. This was thanks to high pressure on top of the region along with a shifting wind from out of the southwest; that southwest wind will continue to pump in milder air and we’ll be above average for the next five days.
Overnight will feature a few clouds with lows ranging from the upper 20s north to the middle 30s in the urban areas; Sunday
will be in the lower 50s with sunshine giving way to some clouds to the north and west thanks to a weak system. Monday will be mostly cloudy with highs near 60 with some showers in the afternoon as a weak cold front will swing on through.
Behind that front we’ll be in the lower 50s for Tuesday afternoon with an onshore flow, but then overnight into Wednesday morning a warm front will push northward. This will propel highs into the lower 60s Wednesday afternoon, but it will be mostly cloudy with showers and even a few thunderstorms possible. Behind the system highs will be in the middle 40s so it won’t be that bad. Our next chance for anything will be by the latter part of next weekend(it’s way too early the speculate whether it is rain or snow).
