Friday Night Lights Forecast - Week 7

After temperatures last week in the 60s and 70s, be sure to pack the hand warmers and drink some hot chocolate, as temperatures will be primarily in the 40s.  Part of the reason is the clear skies we'll be seeing will also not hold the daytime heating we'll see throughout the day.

Temperatures around the metro will start in the lower to mid 50s around kickoff and quickly cool off by half time in the upper 40s.  By the fourth quarter, we'll see temperatures dipping into the mid-40s on their way down to near 40-degree lows.  Skies, as mentioned, will be mostly clear with lots of stars to look at.

To the north and west, temperatures will only be starting in the upper 40 and drop into the upper 30s, with lows going close to the freezing mark.  With that, most of the counties to the north and west of Philadelphia are under a Freeze Watch, so a heavier jacket may be needed.  Heading south, temperature start around 50-degrees and quickly plummet into the mid-40s by halftime and by the fourth quarter temperatures in the lower 40's.  Across the region, skies will remain the partly to mostly clear with winds from the northwesterly direction.
