Damp, Showery Later On Today
Showers will transition to a steadier round of light rain later on today as the storm system moves through from the west. Light rain should continue into the evening before tapering off by Midnight across the region. This isn't going to be a big deal storm system by any stretch but a quarter inch of rain may fall, with the Poconos possibly seeing an inch or so of snow before transitioning over to light rain late today.
Temperatures will get to around 40 in the Lehigh Valley, in the mid 40's throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania, and in the mid and upper 40's south of the city. I pegged 46 for a high in Philadelphia but might be a bit optimistic on projecting the high for the city today...it's possible we may be a few degrees cooler than this if precipitation is a bit more consistent earlier in the day. Winds will be light but it will be a damp, raw day ahead.
