The snow melt commenced on Tuesday with a high reaching 46 at Philly International(after a low of 30) with plenty of sunshine in the afternoon; to the south and east across Southern New Jersey it only reached the upper 30s and near 40 due to a strong easterly wind, cloud cover, and also 6-10" of snow that fell on Monday(what little sun that shined through reflected the energy back into the atmosphere).
Overnight we'll have a few clouds with lows in the upper 30s. Wednesday will feature increasing clouds as a cold front pushes closer, but rain should hold off until after the evening commute. Highs will be in the upper 40s.
Overnight Wednesday into Thursday the rain will push away and we'll have clearing by sunrise with lows in the lower 40s which will lead to the first day of Spring(12:57pm it officially begins) having sunshine with highs in the middle 50s.
If that's not warm enough for you how about close to 60 on Friday? The catch is that a piece of energy behind the front will hang around and bring a mostly cloudy day with some light rain....but who cares?
