It's days like today where I find it difficult for write about the weather, something that seems so menial when compared to a tragedy like what we've seen today. I think I can speak for all of us here at phillyweather.net when I say that our thought's and prayers are with those in Connecticut who must go through this holiday season now with heavy hearts and broken homes. Nevertheless, here is the forecast, knowing that while it may say sunny, it just won't shine as brightly.
This evening, we'll see mostly clear skies and cold temperatures, with lows in the lower to mid-30's, except to the far north and west, where they may never get out of the upper 20's. Winds will be from the west at 5 to 10 mph. Tomorrow will be mostly sunny for a good majority of the day. By the evening, skies will begin to see the clouds on the increase. High's tomorrow around 50-degrees in the metro, the upper 40's to lower 50's to the south and east and in the mid-40's to the north and west. Winds tomorrow will be light out of the north, and will shift to the east late.
By late Saturday night into Sunday, we'll see the rain showers move in and the start of a fairly unsettled pattern. Sunday will see rain showers for the front part of the day, then rain likely by evening. Highs in the lower to mid-50's. Monday will see rain showers persistent throughout the day with a high in the mid-50's. Tuesday will be a kind of transition day between two systems, with scattered showers still possible. Wednesday will start off with showers early, then clearing later in the afternoon. Thursday, we finally see some clearing and the sun coming back out before Friday and more showers. Highs to end the week in the upper 40's.
