PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) —
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy and seasonable with lows in the 40s.
THURSDAY: An upper level trough (very chilly air) will come through during the day meaning lots of clouds and even the threat of a sprinkle. Highs will struggle to reach 60 with a northwest wind around 10-20mph. You will definitely feel a chill in the air.
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY: The trough will have lifted out and high pressure will be building off the southeastern U.S. meaning a 2 day return to sunshine and warming temps. Friday’s high will reach 65 with Saturday up to a very pleasant 72.
SUNDAY: A cold front will be working eastward and this will link up with a northward progressing tropical low that has origins all the way down in the Caribbean. What this means for us is a soaking rain for much of the day. Preliminary rainfall totals are 1 to 3 inches. If the low tracks just offshore we see closer to the 1″, but if that low passes right over us we could be looking a real soaking of 3″ or more and the possibility of some localized flooding on streets and low lying areas. If you are heading to the eagles, bundle up and bring rain gear. Highs at 66.
MONDAY: Clouds hang tough, with some breaks of sun. It’s brisk, cool, and very windy. Gusts could reach speeds of 40mph. A high of only 55.
TUESDAY (HALLOWEEN): Sunshine returns, but it’s a cool and somewhat brisk day with a high of just 61. We may still be in the upper 40s and low 50s for morning Halloween parades in school parking lots. Most areas will be in the 50s for trick or treating with a slide into the upper 40s in some suburbs later in the evening.
WEDNESDAY: This is a pleasant day with plenty of sunshine likely again and a cool high of 60.
