Frozen Sunday

If it were 100 degrees out that frozen sundae would sound pretty good...alas, it's not and it probably wouldn't unless you can scarf down ice cream in January.  Not my cup of tea...but I digress.   Flurries and light snow coated through parts of the region last night with a reinforcing shot of Canadian chill as it slipped southeast through the region overnight.  The Poconos picked up an inch or two of snow, some of us mere coatings of pellets and powder, but collectively we're going to have a chilled and breezy day on tap.

We're starting in the 20's this morning for the city on south, with teens to our north.   With the wind, it feels about ten degrees colder out there (chills in the single digits up north, teens for now in Philly).   There isn't going to be much recovery in the temperature in Philadelphia, with a projected high near 30 degrees.  20's will be common to our north, with near 30 south of the city.  Winds will be on the order of 12-20 mph from the north and northwest, bringing wind chills in the teens this afternoon to the region.   Skies on the whole today will feature a mix of sun and clouds, probably a bit more sunny than yesterday in the region.

Today will be the coldest of this four day cold shot, with moderation starting tomorrow, continuing in force on Tuesday before we slip back into the 30's on Wednesday.
