After a low of 24 this morning at Philly International Airport we reached a high of just 30 with a mostly cloudy day and some snow showers in the afternoon(amounting to just a trace officially recorded). The snow showers were part of not only a low pressure area skirting past the Jersey coastline, but also a piece of energy pushing through the region as well. Now overnight we will stay cloudy with lows in the lower 20s.
Sunday will feature a quick-moving clipper system in the late afternoon that will provide the region with up to an inch of snow with highs just around freezing. Behind the clipper will be another shot of Arctic air so highs come Monday will be around 30 and after a low in the teens overnight we'll just be in the upper 20s come Tuesday.
Wednesday morning will be interesting as we'll start off cold in just the upper teens and with a coastal low forecasted to slide up the east coast we may have periods of snow by the late morning; once milder air pushes in we would see a gradual changeover to sleet and then rain with temperatures rising to the upper 30s. This will continue overnight into Thursday with lows in the upper 30s and highs in the lower 40s; once the low pushes to the northeast we can have some cold air on the back end and with some moisture around after sunset we could see some wet snow flakes(a better chance for that will be north and west).
After that for Friday going into the weekend we get more into a zonal flow(cold air stays north and warm air stays south; we are in between) so highs will be in the lower to middle 40s by day with lows in the middle and upper 20s by night.
