49's not too bad for a high at Philly International(still six degrees below average), but after being in the middle and upper 60s on Saturday this was truly a rude awakening. A mostly cloudy day thanks to a short wave and an area of low pressure to the south made the day feel even worse!
Overnight we'll have a mostly clear sky with lows in the lower 20s; this will lead to a high of just the upper 30s despite plenty of sunshine thanks to a northwesterly wind between 10-15mph. Tuesday will be just a tad warmer with highs around 40, but we'll cloud up before a short wave to the west and an area of low pressure to the south will inch closer to the region. This will provide a mixture of rain(along the coast), sleet along I-95 and snow(north and west) overnight into Wednesday with temperatures in the lower 30s. There will be a changeover to all snow by sunrise as the low cranks up offshore. Snowfall amounts are looking to be minimal(a couple of inches), but the wind will be cranking between 25-35mph(with higher gusts at the shore).
Behind the low we'll be in the middle 40s on Thursday, but then a surge of warm air works in for Friday with highs in the middle 60s!
