A BIG WARM UP ON THE WAY !

Discussion & Forecast:
Thursday, 1/03/08
7:30 PM

Today was the coldest day of this winter season, as Highs struggled to reach the Mid 20's across much of the Delaware Valley. Another very cold night is on tap tonight as temperatures drop to near 10 Degrees in the suburbs to the mid teens in PHL.

Strong High Pressure now in the Midwest will move East to the M/A Coast on Friday. As this High moves offshore, a return flow around this High, will result in a quick warm up, as South to SW winds develop for Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will rebound to the Mid 40's on Saturday and Near 50 by Sunday. As we head into next week, Unseasonably Mild air will overspread the region from the west and Southwest for Monday through Wednesday. Highs will be near 60, and lows in the Upper 30's and Lower 40's. Skies will mainly be P.Sunny during the day and P.Cloudy at night during this time.

My Weekend Outlook:
For The Delaware Valley

Tonight:
M.Clear and Very Cold with diminishing winds. Lows near 10 in the suburbs, to the Mid teens in City.

Friday:
M.Sunny and not as Cold. Highs 35 to 40. Fair and cold at night with lows near 20 in the suburbs to the low and mid 20's in the City.

Saturday:
A Mix of Clouds and Sunshine with temperatures rebounding to the Mid 40's. M.Cloudy with a few showers at night. Lows in the to low to mid 30's.

Sunday:
M.Cloudy and Milder a shower possible with Highs near 50. M.Cloudy at night with lows in the mid to Upper 30's

Monday:
P.Sunny and Very Mild. Highs in the Mid 50's to near 60.

I'll update later this weekend, with more thoughts on the upcoming week. It now appears We'll remain dry through Wednesday, but a Cold front and Low Pressure will approach from the Midwest, bringing the threat of showers, Wednesday Night and Thursday. Temps should begin to cool back down later next week, but will remain Above Average.

Take Care,
Ruggie
