So What If It's Spring? Mother Nature Doesn't Care!

The next seven days ahead
The next seven days ahead

What a beautiful way to start off the first say of Astronomical Spring! The average high is in the mid 50s and we reached 56 this afternoon at Philly International! That was also with a gusty westerly wind over 30mph!

A trough pushed to the east on Thursday, but a warm front will push northward on Friday afternoon; 50s ahead of the warm front, but 60s behind it.

Overnight lows will be in the lower 30s with a clear sky, but the wind will still be out of the west between 10-15mph(making a wind chill around the middle 20s). Come Friday we'll be sunny with a few clouds as we'll have a warm front pushing northward. Highs will be in the lower 50s.

Once that warm front pushes northward by the evening it will be a milder night with lows in the middle 40s and come Saturday we'll flirt with the middle 60s with sunshine giving way to clouds as a cold front inches closer to the region. And then that's it with the milder weather....

After a few light rain showers overnight into Sunday we clear out by the morning with highs just in the middle 40s; it's cooler come Monday with highs just in the upper 30s despite plenty of sunshine thanks to a northwesterly wind ushering in that colder air.

Tuesday we'll have an area of low pressure push in from the Great Lakes and then another area of low pressure push out of the Gulf of Mexico as it streams northward. These two will phase(merge) into one low with plenty of moisture, but as for its track this afternoon's GFS model took it off of the Carolina coast line and out to sea. The European model likes to push it northeastward and graze the area with some rain to snow overnight Tuesday into Wednesday(the ensembles push it more eastward with just light snow amounts).

Let's just wait until the cold air filters in first before we talk about the potential for snow, you know? Why overhype something because all it will do is just cause unnecessary mayhem and confusion.
