March 7th, 2012 Forecast

These winter-like temperatures will gradually be coming to an end as a strong 1039 mb high centered over Virginia pushes eastward off the coast and sets up a southwesterly flow over the region for Wednesday and Thursday. A weak low pressure system traveling southeast across Ontario will bring us some showers late day Thursday into Friday morning. As this low moves northeastward toward Nova Scotia during the day on Friday, showers will come to an end but temperatures will drop to more seasonable levels for early March.

Tonight: Mostly clear and seasonable. Lows will drop into the lower 30s in most locations. Winds will be out of the south-southwest at 5 to 10 mph. The sunset this evening is at 5:59 PM.

Wednesday: Bright sun for most of the day, but a few clouds will move through the area by the mid to late afternoon hours. The high will be in the lower 60s in Philadelphia with many of the suburbs also approaching 60 degrees. Winds will be out of the southwest at 10 to 15 mph.

Thursday: Sun to clouds and warm. There is a 60 percent chance of showers moving in late in the day and lasting through the overnight hours. High in the upper 60s.

Friday: A few leftover showers in the morning will come to an end. Clouds will give way to sunshine. As the clouds break, temperatures will fall into the mid to upper 40s in the afternoon after a midnight high in the mid to upper 50s.
