Thursday started off with rain and clouds, but the afternoon we were rewarded with sunshine and fair weather cumulus; we actually reached 71 degrees at Midnight at Philadelphia International Airport, but then as the frontal boundary provided an additional quarter of an inch of rain(well, 0.24″ to be exact) the front pushed on through we stayed primarily in the upper 60s through the afternoon as we dried out.
Overnight will feature a few clouds as although isolated showers popped up in the afternoon they fizzled out due to their heat source(the sun) setting; lows will be in the lower to middle 50s. After some morning clouds we will have sunshine and a southerly wind so highs will be around the lower 70s. Overnight Friday into Saturday morning a quick moving cold front will be passing through and provide some morning clouds and showers with highs in the upper 60s.
A short wave behind the front will be pushing through overnight Saturday into early Sunday morning with lows in the upper 40s, but sunshine shall prevail by mid-morning. The issue is behind that short wave is there will be extremely cooler air from Canada so highs will just be in the upper 50s with a northerly wind. We’ll be back into the 60s on Monday, but have clouds overnight into Tuesday as a cold front pushes through.
Tuesday morning may feature some light rain with highs ahead of the front into the upper 60s, but then not only does another shot of cooler air filter on through for Wednesday with highs in the upper 50s, but a low pressure area forms offshore! This means an onshore wind plus abundant moisture equals a raw end to the week with highs just in the lower 50s and on-and-off showers.
