We almost cracked 70 this afternoon at Philly International despite an overcast day and even some heavy rain in the late afternoon; as of the 5pm climate report from the National Weather Service we received 0.29", but once the overnight final report is issued that number will be closer to 1.50" after a line of heavier showers(accompanied with gusty winds) pushed through around 6pm.
After some early rain(mixing with wet snow north and west) we'll clear out overnight with lows dropping in Center City to the freezing mark; this means that anything wet will freeze and create black ice in the morning when you head out to work. We'll rebound in the afternoon to just around 50 degrees, but with a northerly wind between 10-15mph it will feel more like the lower 40s.
Another cold overnight Wednesday into Thursday with lows around freezing, but we'll be in the middle 50s in the afternoon under plenty of sunshine and be a couple of degrees milder on Friday. Mind you our average high should be in the lower 60s and we'll be there on Saturday, but there may be some light rain in the late morning and early afternoon with a piece of energy pushing northward. Easter Sunday will be in the lower 60s with sunshine and we'll get closer to 70 by early next week before a cold front pushes through Tuesday.
