Bright Start To Clouds Late

It won't be as brisk as yesterday and we will have similar temperatures. However, a weak disturbance will shoot east through the Great Lakes and through Pennsylvania later tonight, leading to increasing clouds during the afternoon hours as this disturbance approaches. We might have one of those days where clouds are approaching towards sunset but much of the day features sunny or mostly sunny skies.

It won't be too bad outside as temperatures approach 40 degrees in the city, probably come up a notch or two short, but will hit that mark south of town.

Tonight's system will spread some light snow or flurries across the region, with the best possibility of accumulation looking to be along and north of I-78.  Some of this could reach the ground locally in Philadelphia in the form of flurries but it looks like the farther north one goes the better the odds for a coating, dusting, or even up to an inch of accumulation on grassy surfaces overnight.   An overall non-big deal though...but enough to gunk up roads on non-treated surfaces.  We'll have more details on this system later on today and in our forecast late this afternoon.
