After a weekend with highs 80 or better at Philly International Airport we reached a high of 79 this afternoon after a low of 62. Granted it was cloudier than days past, but with the strong southerly wind advecting in that warm air it still felt like summertime!

A potent cold front will progress eastward on Tuesday providing the region with heavy rain; colder air moves in for Wednesday

There is a cold front pushing in from the west and overnight it will be cloudy with some light rain; lows will be in the upper 50s to around 60.

Tuesday will be overcast with highs in the middle and upper 60s with some showers and thunderstorms in advance of the cold front; there may be some stronger storms across the Delmarva with some CAPE(Convective Available Potential Energy, or "storm juice") and the winds will still be gusting out of the south between 15-25mph with higher gusts in storms.

Wednesday morning as the front comes through in the early morning hours temperatures will drop from the lower 50s through the 40s and 30s with some wet snow possible north and west. The day itself shall be sunny, but with a northwest wind highs will be in the 40s(but the climate report will reflect that the high will be in the 50s around Midnight). We'll stay into the 50s for the remainder of the work week with some light rain on Saturday.
