January 11th, 2012 Forecast

Today's nice weather is a fleeting reminder of the winter we haven't had.  A taste of winter chill is coming in starting on Friday, with a couple of less-than-stellar days forthcoming to mark its transition.  While most of Wednesday will be decent, rain moves in towards dinner tomorrow and overspreads the region through the evening hours.   Some of that rain may start in the form of snow or sleet in the Poconos and higher elevations of the Lehigh Valley, with the potential for a few inches of snow in the Poconos Wednesday night as temperatures should hold near or just below freezing during the event.   Locally though, it's gon' rain...

Tonight's weather will be mostly clear but not terribly cold.  Low temperatures will be in the 20's in the colder burbs outside of the city, lower 30's along the Shore and in the city.   We'll start with mostly clear skies on Wednesday morning but clouds will increase from southwest to northeast through the day as the storm system approaches.  Rain should move into Delaware and Maryland during the afternoon, into the city by dinner time.   Temperatures tomorrow will range from the lower 40's in the upper Lehigh Valley to the upper 40's south of the city.  Winds will nudge around to the east at around 10 mph in the afternoon hours.

We will have an update on the rain for Wednesday night (and Pocono snow chances) later on this evening!
