Some Snow, Some Sun; All Part of Winter's Fun!

Today's high was 42(set at 3:45pm) and that's EXACTLY where we should be with our average high. As for the low it was four degrees off of the average of 28, but that's pretty much seasonable and so overall we had a seasonable day.

Between sunrise and sunset we did have some snow that was heavy the further north and west you went (you can see the compiled report here: http://mesonet.agron.iastate.edu/wx/afos/p.php?pil=PNSPHI&e=201312261958), but officially at Philly Int'l there was a trace of snow recorded(less than a tenth of an inch). For the year we've had 11.2" of snow that has fallen(most of that fell on December 8th; remember the awesome game at the Linc with the Eagles dominating the Lions?)

Anyway, snow chances are over for the rest of the year! (I know, I'm horrible at jokes....) We'll have high pressure parked on top of us for the rest of the week so highs will be in the lower 40s for Friday with a northwest wind while we'll crack the lower 50s thanks to a southwest wind on Saturday. We'll cloud up on Sunday with a coastal low forming to the south and drifting north ensuring ALL RAIN with highs in the upper 40s. Although it's quick moving and gone by early Monday morning we could see between 0.50-0.75" of rain before we cool back down with highs falling through the afternoon. An Arctic blast will dominate the last day of the year with highs on either side of freezing while we'll ring in the new year with highs just in the upper 20s! Yikes!
