One Fast Moving Clipper After Another.....And Then Philly Gets Chilly(again)!

The next seven days ahead
The next seven days ahead

It was an average Winter day with highs right around 40(the official high temperature at Philly International was 39 set at 3:59pm); the low this morning was above freezing and with temperatures tonight being in the upper 20s you can check out the National Weather Service's overnight climate report and it shall reflect a low around that number just before Midnight. Although the day was seasonable it didn't feel it! It was raw with clouds through the morning with even some snow showers before noon(it was recorded as a "trace" at the airport)! We did break out in sunshine in the afternoon, but we didn't warm up too much. After an average night with a mostly clear sky we'll have sunshine on Friday with clouds moving in late in the afternoon with highs in the middle 40s.

Quick multiple systems will swing through the region for the next few days

Overnight Friday into Saturday temperatures will be hovering around freezing so there may be some rain-to-snow showers in the morning and then partial sunshine in the afternoon with highs in the upper 30s. Wouldn't you know it? ANOTHER clipper moves through overnight Saturday into Sunday so with lows in the upper 20s and highs in the lower 40s we can see some snow flying once again before temperatures jump above freezing(with little accumulation).

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day will start off sunny and then clouds roll in by the afternoon with highs in the middle 40s; after dinnertime we can see some light rain with lows in the upper 30s, but by daybreak on Tuesday a cold front ushers in colder air. This will a) allow temperatures to drop and b) cause anything that was wet to freeze in the afternoon. With Arctic air on top of us overnight Tuesday lows will be in the upper teens and highs on Wednesday will only rise a couple of degrees; ditto for Thursday, but after a low into the lower teens with a mix of sunshine and clouds.
