After a morning low of 19 at Philly International Airport we rebounded into the lower 40s at 4pm(it was officially 42 set at 3:39pm); granted it's still seven degrees off of the average high of 49, but it's a step in the right direction....so it would seem.
We had clouds this afternoon thanks to a short wave passing by to our north, but it did drag in some colder air behind it. Overnight Wednesday it will be clear with lows in the upper teens and lower 20s thanks to high pressure on top of us; this will also keep that coastal low down across the Southeastern US from penetrating northward. On the flip side highs will just be around freezing thanks to a northerly wind around 10mph.
High pressure will slide to the northeast and allow an area of low pressure to slide northward; at least we'll get back into the lower 40s on Friday. There may be some light rain along the shore in the early evening, but behind it we'll have a decent Saturday ahead of a cold front with lows in the middle 30s and highs in the middle 50s! There may be a few light showers with the front overnight Saturday into Sunday, but behind that front we'll have temperatures dip a few degrees back into the upper 40s.
For the beginning of the new work week temperatures soar into the middle and upper 50s with series of short waves passing us by to the north and just providing some clouds.
