Much Colder


The cold air has arrived.  Temperatures as of 7am are the in the mid to upper 20's for most locations.  The exception is in far northeast PA and the Poconos where temperatures are in the teens.  The true arctic air has yet to move in and will arrive later tonight as a secondary cold front moves through the region.  An area of low-pressure will form along this front and begin to strengthen as it moves off the NJ coastline.   This will develop some light snow and snow showers and they will move through the region this evening and early tonight.  We are not expecting a whole lot out of this, but there will be a period of some light snow that could put down a quick coating to an inch, especially north and west of the city.

We'll see some sun this morning, but clouds will be on the increasing by noon and during the afternoon hours.  Temperatures will rise to the mid 30's across the city and points south and east, while they will stay below freezing well north and west of the city.  Winds will be light to start, but become southerly this afternoon before the cold front moves through.

The next two days are going to be very cold as highs will only be in the 20's.
