AccuWeather: A Soaking Rain to Start The Weekend

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Morning sun gave way to increasing high clouds during the day. Winds dropped off, especially in the afternoon and it was more comfortable with a high of 53.

TONIGHT: Clouds increase. It's chilly, but not as cold as recent nights with a low of 41.

FRIDAY: More clouds arrive and a few showers are possible later in the day, with a steady rain developing at night. The high is a seasonable 50.

SATURDAY: An area of low pressure cutting north from the deep South will bring us a chilly, windy and wet day with a cold rain falling from dawn through most of the afternoon. A 1-2" rainfall is expected with the highest totals in South Jersey and Delaware where totals could move closer to 3". Since morning temperatures will be no worse than the upper 30s and low 40s with an afternoon high of 49, it looks too warm for any ice and snow. Winds will gust into the 40s at times.

SUNDAY: The rain may be over, but the aftermath of our Saturday storm will be a very chilly Sunday with a cold, blustery wind. Look for mostly sunny skies with a high of just 42 and wind chills making it feel like the low 30s all day long.

MONDAY: Sun mixes with clouds and we get another brisk and chilly high of just 42 with a few sprinkles or flurries around.

TUESDAY: We have largely sunny skies, but it's still brisk and very chilly with a high of just 44.

WEDNESDAY: It's partly sunny with slightly milder air arriving during the afternoon. The high rises to 47.

THURSDAY: Clouds return along with a few showers. The high bumps to 50.
