Winter Takes A Break
Expect high temperatures this afternoon in the 50's -- 54 is our prediction for Philly, with mid 50's common in the Delaware Valley and south (low 50's in the Lehigh Valley). West to southwest breezes at 10 mph could occasionally gust towards 20 but the mild breezes will help boost temperatures and not bring too much of a bite to the air today. No record highs are in danger locally today -- our record high is 73 degrees from 2007 -- so we should be able to avoid the litany of record highs that hit up the Midwest, Plains, and West over the past couple of days. However, winter is retreating after a small invasion for a little while before the chill returns late next week.
