January 6th, 2012 Forecast

We are on an upward swing in marked a transition away from the cold with temperatures that were much more typical for this time of the year.  Warmer air is on the way for the next couple of days.  While it's not quite shorts weather, it is definitely more typical of the "November in December" theme we had of late.

Tonight:  Skies will feature a mix of clouds and stars overall.  There could be a flurry or two to the north of the city overnight but any dusting type accumulations do not look likely.  Expect lows in the 20's northwest to the low 30's in the city and most places south of town.

Friday:  Milder weather hits the region as skies break for some sun and southwest and west breezes at 10 mph boost temperatures into the middle 50's in Philadelphia, with lower to middle 50's common throughout the Delaware Valley.  Might be sunroof weather if we cross our fingers!

Weekend Sneak Peek:   Saturday features a frontal boundary passing through the region but temperatures will still be mild...expect highs in the lower 50's.  That frontal boundary will knock temperatures back a few degrees for Sunday but a mid 40's high on Sunday is still a few degrees above average.   All in all, nice weather is expected for the first full weekend of 2012.
