December 13th, 2011 Forecast

The coolest stretch of weather we've had since March continues on for the next day or so before we begin to see a warmer push late Wednesday and on Thursday thanks to low pressure that will organize in the Southern Plains tomorrow.   A weak trough will nudge across New England tomorrow and help reinforce the "typical" early winter weather that's in place over the East Coast as temperatures will stay seasonably cool for this time of the year.

Tonight features some passing high and mid level clouds and temperatures that are not as cold as the last couple of nights.  Lows range from the 20's in the burbs to around freezing in the city, about five degrees "milder" than last night.   Winds will generally remain very light if not calm through the night.

Tuesday features a mix of sun and clouds, with more sunshine in the afternoon as the weak trough passes away to our north.  Temperatures will reach the lower 50's south of the city, probably upper 40's along I-95 and points northwest.   Philly's projected high will be 49...not a bad day on the whole and a touch milder than what we're dealing with today.

Later This Evening:  Talking about the chances for some drizzle or showers north/west on Wednesday night...perhaps some freezing drizzle or showers for those farther north depending on timing.
