Forecast for April 28th, 2012

After a damp and overcast morning, clouds started to thin out this afternoon, leading the way for radiational cooling tonight.  Ahead of this, the National Weather Service has posted Freeze Watches and Warnings for counties north and west of Philadelphia, although as more temperature guidance come in, more areas could be added.  Temperatures will be warmer throughout the next week, however things will become unsettled as we venture into the first week of May.

For tonight, skies will be partly cloudy and will remain fairly breezy.  Freeze conditions are possible.  Temperatures will stick in the mid- to upper 30's with winds from the northwest, averaging about 10 mph.  Temperatures will rebound tomorrow to around 60-degrees.  Clouds will be on the increase with a chance of rain by the afternoon.  The rain will become more steady towards evening but will be on the move out during the overnight as well.

Skies clear out by Sunday morning, and that sunshine bumps us up into the 60's.  Monday is a transition day.  Skies will start to cloud up, however it will still be warmer.  Tuesday will start to see more showers and unsettled weather into the region.  Low temperatures reach into the 50's Tuesday into Wednesday.  Wednesday and Thursday will remain mostly cloudy with a chance of pop-up showers and thunderstorm both days.  Friday remains the same, continued chances of showers and thunderstorms and warm, with temperatures inching closer to the 80-degree mark.  Going beyond the seven day forecast, the next weekend look like the skies and unsettled weather finally moves out, giving way to warm temperatures and mostly sunny skies.
