65 degrees was the high at Philly International today! Some areas across Southern NJ and Delaware reached 70! This was under a mostly sunny day with a light westerly wind; overnight we'll have increasing clouds with lows in the middle 40s. It shall be mild again on Wednesday with highs in the middle 60s, but the catch is that the day shall be mostly cloudy and we'll have a gusty southerly wind between 15-20mph. The rain shall be light after lunchtime, but my the evening commute we may have a line of thunderstorms pushing through as the cold front inches closer to us.

A cold front in the Midwest will push eastward Wednesday, but to the south is plenty Gulf of Mexico moisture to enhance thunderstorms as well

Once the line of thunderstorms pushes through temperatures will start to crash overnight as colder air filters through; this means that on the back end of this system we can see some wet snowflakes as temperatures fall from about 45 down through the 40s, the 30s, and eventually settling into the upper 20s through the day Thursday. Overnight Thursday into Friday will be cold with lows in the lower 20s, but we'll rebound to the middle 40s come Friday.

The weekend looks milder as although a weak front will pass by to our north we'll stay dry with highs in the upper 50s, but just be around 50 come Sunday with increasing clouds as a system will ride up the coast from the south; this should skirt by to our south and east, but provide some rain overnight into Monday.

Behind that system, however temperatures go from being above average to below average once again with highs ranging from the upper 30s to lower 40s. Don't forget that you can check out the rest of the 7-day forecast(any time) at www.scottderekwx.com/forecast.html.
