Damp, Showery, Some Icy Spots Farther North/West
A frontal boundary will generally set up shop across the region over the weekend, providing a forecasting pain and providing a relatively damp forecast to the region for today, tonight, and a good chunk of tomorrow. Scattered showers will traverse the state today, generally north of Philadelphia, but as a wave of energy moves north up the coast from its position in the Carolinas more showers, drizzle, and areas of fog will spread in this evening for the balance of the region.
Temperatures in the advisory areas will be the coolest today -- generally in the 30's this afternoon but you will warm above freezing through the course of the morning. The northern and western burbs will probably get to around 40 or 42, with the city getting into the mid 40's by dinner and upper 40's to the south. Not the best of days and not the best of weather nights ahead but it will be a notch or two milder today in the temperature department. Without much sunshine, it won't feel all that warmer.
