Not a cloud in the sky this morning, but near lunch time it was lights out as the self destructing sun allowed for cumulus clouds to billow up and turn things cloudy for the afternoon. This kept temperatures in the 30's for the first time this season, with a high of 38, nine degrees below normal. Wind chills were stuck in the 20's as west-northwest winds have been around 20 mph.

TONIGHT: The stars are out. It's still brisk and cold with a low of 28 in Philadelphia and the mid 20s in some suburbs.

SATURDAY: We start off with sun as high pressure builds into the Ohio Valley. Clouds will pop-up again in the afternoon, but not likely as much as Friday. The high holds at 38.

SUNDAY: Any early sunshine gives way to clouds rather quickly. It's not as windy, but still chilly. A few snow showers are possible later in the afternoon. The high is 40.

SUNDAY NIGHT: An area of low pressure will push eastward from the Plains, passing well to our northwest. At the same time, a screaming low level jet at 60mph+ out of the south will flood warm air into our region. This means temperatures will be rising as we head into the morning. So, a rather short period of snow will fall in the northwest suburbs before a changeover to rain. Most of the frozen precipitation will fall in the late night and wee hours of the morning. Even areas like the Lehigh Valley should be transitioned to mainly rain by dawn. Temperatures will rise overnight.

MONDAY: Periods of rain, breezy but not very cold. The high: 53.

TUESDAY: It's mostly cloudy, brisk and chilly with a cooler high of 45. Some additional rain or snow is possible at night.

WEDNESDAY: The next Arctic front arrives, with the opportunity for more rain and snow showers. The high: 40.

THURSDAY: Behind that front, look out! It's another blast of cold, arctic air. Look for mostly sunny skies, but it will be windy and bitter with a flurry around and a high of only 32. Wind chills will be in the teens and 20's. The overnight low plunges into the teens.

FRIDAY: Still blustery and cold, with a high struggling to hit 32.
