January 18th, 2012 Forecast

Throughout the afternoon, a majority of the Delaware Valley has seen cloudiness with some degree of breakage, depending on how far north you are.  Places in southern New Jersey and Delaware have seen some rain and frozen precipitation.  As we progress into tonight, clearing will take place, generally from north to south but this will not take place until late tonight.  Precipitation at the Shore will transition to snow after sunset, with some steadier bursts of snow through 10 or 11 PM below AC and Dover.  Lows tonight ranging from the mid-20's to the north and west, into the lower 30's to the south and east.  Lows will hover around the 30-degree mark here in the city.  Winds will be out of the northwest at 5 to 10 mph.  Friday will see the return of the sun, although wind speeds will be up behind this system.  Highs in the mid- to upper 30's regionally with breezy winds from the northwest.

This weekend will feature some of the warmer temperatures we've come to get used too, but it is all for naught, because Old Man Winter will rear it's ugly head once again.  Saturday, skies will be mostly sunny with temperatures in the mid- to upper 40's and still slightly breezy.  Sunday will start the cool down process with sun and clouds.  Highs will reach the mid-40's before the bottom drops out.  Monday will only feature temperatures close to the freezing point with mostly sunny skies in the daytime and a chance of flurries in the overnight.  Tuesday will also see frigid temperatures with, again, the chance of some flurries.  High's could only get in the lower 30's and low could drop all the way down to the upper teens.  Wednesday will continue to be cold, under mostly sunny skies and Thursday will be slightly warmer, with high in the upper 30's, under partly cloudy skies.
