It was another beautiful sunny day, but still a chill in the air. Thankfully, we lost the winds from yesterday. So, despite highs only in the mid 40's, it felt much more comfortable than yesterday's sub-freezing wind chills.

TONIGHT: We start off clear tonight, but then clouds roll in very late ahead of a warm front. Overnight lows will drop into the mid 20's in the outlying suburbs to near freezing here in Center City.

FRIDAY: Light precipitation may accompany the warm front around mid morning or areas northwest of I-95. In the Poconos, that may start as a brief period of light snow and then go over to freezing rain, leading to a light glaze. Due to this icing concern, a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for the Poconos from 8am until 1pm. Even in the Lehigh Valley, there could be a few sleet pellets or very brief freezing rain before a quick transition over to rain. All in all, less 0.10" of precipitation is expected. During the afternoon, as that warm front lifts to our north we should see some breaks of sun and temps will rise to 55.

SATURDAY: Temperatures surge to 74 degrees! But, there will be plenty of high clouds will be around, so it won't be a bright, sunny day. There could even be a shower late in the day. If you are thinking of heading to the shore, keep in mind that temperatures there will only top out near 59, nearly 15 degrees cooler than what is expected here in Philadelphia.

SUNDAY: The party is over as a back door cold front slips through the region and an easterly wind develops, giving us low clouds, cooler temperatures and some drizzle and pockets of light rain. Sunday's high drops down to 53.

MONDAY: Look for mostly cloudy skies, lingering rain and a high around 63.

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

WEDNESDAY: A chance of more rain give way to a mixture of clouds and sunshine. The high is 61.

THURSDAY: Mostly sunny skies return with a high around 58.
