7:00 AM | March closes out with a chilly rain and there can even be snowflakes mixed in

6-Day Philly Forecast

Today

Early sunshine gives way to a quick increase in clouds, rain will break out this afternoon and there can be snowflakes mixed in at times; especially, well to the north and west, cold, highs in the mid-to-upper 40's

Tonight

Rain is likely to be mixed with snow this evening and could even change to all snow before ending in the some of the N and W suburbs with small grassy accumulations possible, cold, lows not far from 30 degrees

Wednesday

Mainly sunny, breezy, cold, mid 40’s

Wednesday Night

Mostly clear, cold, lower 30’s for lows

Thursday

Mainly sunny, becoming breezy and much milder, low 60’s

Friday

Mostly cloudy, quite breezy and mild with showers likely, mid 60’s

Saturday

Lingering morning showers; otherwise, mostly cloudy skies, breezy and colder, low 50’s

Sunday

Mostly sunny, quite chilly for this time of year, near 50 degrees

Discussion

Yet another disturbance will drop to the southeast today from the Great Lakes region and it should generate rain in the area this afternoon and evening and there can be snowflakes mixed in at times; especially, well to the north and west of the metro region. In areas to the north of Route I-80, today's event will feature more snow than rain and higher elevation locations like the Poconos can receive a few inches of snowfall by later tonight. Precipitation winds down later this evening from the fast-moving clipper system - perhaps even as all snow in some of the N and W suburbs. Wednesday will turn out to be quite breezy and cold for the first day of April. Much milder air will advance northward into our region on Thursday and then Friday stays quite mild, but showers will be quite likely as the next cold front approaches from the northwest. Colder air will follow the late week frontal system just in time for the upcoming Easter weekend.

7:00 AM | An active start to the week with a couple of different disturbances; snow threat later tomorrow/tomorrow night primarily confined to Route I-80 and north; 60′s likely on Thursday and Friday

6-Day Philly Forecast

Today

rain and snow showers pull out of the area early today and the cloudy skies will give way to sunshine for the afternoon, becoming quite breezy and turning milder, highs in the mid-to-upper 50's later in the day

Tonight

Partly cloudy, chilly, lows in the low-to-mid 30’s

Tuesday

Becoming cloudy, chilly, rain likely during the afternoon and it can be mixed with snow at times across northern sections, near 50 degrees for highs

Tuesday Night

Rain likely during the evening and it can be mixed with snow at times across northern sections, cold, late night lows in the lower 30's

Wednesday

Mainly sunny, breezy, chilly, near 50 degrees

Thursday

Mostly sunny, becoming breezy and noticeably milder, low 60’s

Friday

Mostly cloudy, quite mild, showers likely, low-to-mid 60’s

Saturday

Partly sunny, colder, breezy, chance for showers, upper 40’s

Discussion

After a weekend with winter-like cold, temperatures will moderate somewhat by later today and there should be a noticeable warm up later in the week with 60's likely on Thursday and Friday. A weak disturbance swinging by to our north this morning produced clouds and showers of rain or snow, but it will push away this afternoon and skies should clear. High pressure will then take control for tonight and early Tuesday, but then yet another disturbance will drop to the southeast from the Great Lakes region and it should produce rain in the area later tomorrow and early tomorrow night and there can be snowflakes mixed in at times; especially, in northernmost sections - those higher elevation areas north of Route I-80 can get primarily snow. Following that second disturbance, Wednesday looks to be quiet, but chilly, and then it’ll turn significantly milder on Thursday and Friday ahead of the next cold frontal system. That front is likely to generate showers in the region on Friday and then usher in colder air for the upcoming Easter weekend.

Discussion

After a spike in temperatures on Thursday to 67 degrees at Philly Int'l Airport, it has turned much cooler this morning following a cold frontal passage and we'll return to winter-like cold for the weekend. The transition to winter-like cold will continue to generate some rain around here this morning and then, as colder air continues to pour into the region, there is the chance for snow shower activity at just about any time from later today through tomorrow. The atmosphere in the overnight hours and on Saturday will be rather unstable around here thanks to an impressive upper-level wave of energy and it’ll likely be cold enough for any precipitation to fall in the form of snow. The weather quiets down on Sunday, but it’ll remain quite cold for this time of year. In fact, the cold this weekend will not only be quite impressive in the Mid-Atlantic region for late March, but it could turn out to be a widespread low temperature record-breaker come early Sunday morning in many parts of the eastern third of the nation.

7:00 AM | A one-day spike in temperatures will be followed by a return to winter-like cold and possible snow showers

6-Day Philly Forecast

Today

Changeable skies today including some sunshine, becoming quite mild and breezy, occasional showers, but much of the time will be rain-free, maybe a thunderstorm late in the day, highs in the mid-to-upper 60's

Occasional showers with a possible strong thunderstorm with downpours and gusty winds, breezy, turning colder late, lows by morning near 40 degrees

Mainly cloudy, much cooler, breezy, chance for rain showers in the morning, rain or snow shower possible in the afternoon, near 50 degrees early in the day

Friday Night

Mostly cloudy, cold, chance for rain or snow showers, near 30 degrees

Saturday

Lots of clouds, much colder and breezy, snow showers likely, near 40 degrees

Sunday

Mainly sunny, cold, mid 40’s

Monday

Tuesday

Partly sunny, cool, low-to-mid 50’s

Discussion

A warm front passed through the region late yesterday and temperatures today will spike in the I-95 corridor; but this warm up will be rather short-lived. A strong cold front arrives this evening with showers and scattered strong thunderstorms and it will put an end to the quick burst of milder weather. Temperatures will begin a downward trend on Friday and that trend will continue into the weekend which will end up being well below normal for late March. In fact, this winter-like cold is likely to be accompanied by snow shower activity anytime from later tomorrow into Saturday as there will be lots of energy in the upper part of the atmosphere generating unstable conditions at the same time the colder air pours into the Mid-Atlantic region.

One final note, with only a few days to go in March, Philadelphia is on pace to have its coldest first quarter (January/February/March) since 1978 and perhaps one of the top ten coldest since records began here in 1872.
