Frozen Start Outside of City

Temperatures this morning are rather chilly across the region -- 20's in the coldest burbs, 30's in the rest of the area.  As of 7 AM, records have been tied in Allentown (30) and set in Scranton (27), with flirting with records in Reading,  Atlantic City, and Wilmington.  For the middle of October, it's definitely a rather chilly start.

The good news is that today will feature plenty of sunshine and light winds, which will allow temperatures to jump into the upper half of the 50's across the region.  We're pegging 57 for Philadelphia this afternoon, with is still several degrees below average for this time of the year but with the mainly sunny and bright conditions not a bad temperature in reality.  Today will be the last cool day for the next few as a push of warmth comes in tomorrow and Monday, with temperatures poised to approach the middle 70's on Monday in parts of the region -- perhaps warmer?

Clouds will increase late this afternoon and tonight as warm air nudges in aloft -- a few showers are possible north of the city overnight with the warm front pushing in.
