Breezy And Brisk
A secondary shot of chill will cross the state during the day today, bringing an increase in clouds associated with the front and also with the cold air advection that comes in behind the front's passage. There could be a sprinkle or perhaps even a few pellets of graupel in the Poconos as the front passes through around midday. In the wake of the front, west and northwest breezes will increase to 12-18 mph, gusting to over 20 mph as a second surge of cooler air pushes in.
Highs today get to around 60 in Philly and points south, with 50's to the north. Today will again be an early November-like day in terms of high temperatures as highs are several degrees below average. With winds diminishing tonight, the potential for a frost or freeze to the city's northwest continues to exist and a freeze watch remains up for the suburbs outside of Philadelphia and Delco.
