A Tranquil Weekend Ahead

After a low of 37 at Philly International Airport we reached 63 before 1:30pm and just before showers and severe thunderstorms rolled through the region; just over a tenth of an inch of rain fell(0.11"), but there were some wind gusts over 40mph and some downed trees. This was all thanks to a cold front that pushed through and wreaked havoc across the Midwest(so all in all we were pretty lucky). Granted a tornado watch was issued earlier in the afternoon it was cancelled a good two hours before its original expiration time because the atmosphere became pretty stable rather quickly.

Overnight lows will be in the lower and middle 30s with a few clouds and also some fog in spots early; Saturday will be sunny with just a few fair weather cumulus clouds as highs will be in the middle 50s and a west to southwest wind between 5-10mph.

Come Sunday we'll have a weak front push in from the west and although it will be dry with highs in the lower 50s during the day at night lows will be around freezing with some rain to wet snow overnight. Behind that front we'll have colder air filtering in so highs will be in the lower 40s on Monday and then on Tuesday highs will just be in the upper 30s.

Things become interesting Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday; we'll have a short wave push in from the Great Lakes and then an area of low pressure around the Tennessee River Valley will slide to the east. Now I don't feel these two won't will phase and bring us a huge snow storm as you may have seen on other social media sites. Right now I'm going with some light snow late Tuesday night into Wednesday and that short wave helps steer the other low to the east and leave us with an overcast sky and maybe some light snow showers.

It's not set in stone and we can massage that forecast over the weekend; for now, enjoy the 50s and you can check out the rest of the 7-day forecast(any time) at www.scottderekwx.com/forecast.html.
