Raw, Chilled Day For Many
Expect daytime highs today near freezing north/west, in the mid 30's in the city, and in the mid 30's south/east of Philadelphia. We'll see that transition to clouds take place in the mid afternoon, with the region generally cloudy by sunset. Warmer air aloft and additional moisture will stream into the region overnight, helping precipitation break out to our north/west initially...and then spreading into the Philadelphia region later on. Thankfully in the city and most of the burbs, temperatures should hold steady this evening and perhaps rise enough to help mitigate the threat for any significant travel problems from freezing rain or freezing drizzle. However, farther north/west in the Lehigh Valley and Berks, temperatures will be cold enough for some slick travel overnight tonight...freezing rain advisories are out for them and points north through west (Central Pennsylvania and the Poconos are also included) for the potential of some icy weather later tonight.
