Weekend Outlook: Frosty and Chilly to Start, then a rebound to Milder Conditions for Sunday and Monday.

Discussion and Forecast:
For the Delaware Valley Region.
Issued: Friday at 8:00 AM

A cold front will move through the Delaware Valley during the morning hours, with some clouds and a few sprinkles, mainly N and W of PHL. Behind this cold front, winds will increase this afternoon as colder air filters in for tonight and tomorrow. NW Winds of 15-25 MPH will be common during the afternoon and early evening hours, before diminishing towards midnight.

High pressure will build in later tonight, through the weekend, with chilly temperatures for both tonight and Saturday, followed by a return flow and Milder conditions for Sunday and Monday.

Many Frost Advisories and Freeze Warnings, are now in effect for points N and W of PHL for late tonight and early Saturday morning. I expect widespread frost across interior sections of Central and Southern NJ as well.

My Delaware Valley Weekend Forecast:

Today: Some morning cloudiness and a few sprinkles, then becoming Mostly Sunny and Windy this afternoon. Highs near 60 with NW winds increasing to 15-25 MPH and gusty this afternoon.

Tonight: Clear and cold with widespread frost likely between 3:00 AM and 9:00 AM for the Suburbs. Lows in the Upper 20's to lower 30's over much of SE PA and Interior Central and Southern NJ. This does not include coastal DE and NJ or the urban areas of PHL and ILG, where temps should remain above freezing between 35-40. Winds: North at 5-15 MPH during the evening, then diminishing overnight.

Saturday: Mostly Sunny and Chilly with Highs in the mid to Upper 50's. Northerly winds at 5-15 MPH. Fair and Chilly at night with lows in the mid to upper 30's in the suburbs to the low 40's in urban and coastal regions.

Sunday: Partly to Mostly Sunny and turning milder. Highs in the Upper 60's to low 70's.

Monday: Partly to Mostly Cloudy and continued quite Mild with a few showers possible. Highs 70-75.

Take Care,
