TODAY: Some showers are possible in the morning, mainly in northern areas with light freezing rain through about midday in the Poconos. Clouds give way to some afternoon sun. The high: 55.

TONIGHT: Skies are partly cloudy. We're in the mid 50s this evening with a mild overnight low of 50.

SATURDAY: Look for lots of high clouds and a passing shower well north of Philadelphia, mainly in the Poconos. But the big story is a surge of very mild air from the south with our high in Philadelphia zooming to 72. The exception to this warm story is at the Shore where highs will hover in the mid to upper 50s, thanks to a slight fetch off the cool ocean.

SUNDAY: The party is over as a so-called "back door" cold front drops down into the region from New England and a cool, moist, easterly wind develops. This results in more clouds, some occasional light rain and drizzle (mainly later in the day and at night) and a high of just 53.

MONDAY: Look for mostly cloudy skies, some lingering rain and a high around 67. This high is dependent on how quickly our front lifts back to the north. If the front is slower, our high will hold in low 60s.

TUESDAY: Clouds hang tough. A little more rain is possible. The high is 62.

WEDNESDAY: It looks like the front lifts away from us and we dry out. Look for a mix of clouds and sun with a high around 61.

THURSDAY: Partly sunny skies appear likely. We get another high around 61.

FRIDAY: Look for more clouds with possible rain. The high is 58.
