Mild, Showery, Both Relatively Short Duration

One day of mildness interrupts a relatively cold stretch of weather around here as the region goes back into the 30's tomorrow with a gusty wind. Today isn't so bad though from a temperature standpoint. Temperatures this afternoon get to around 50, which will occur just after midday as showers begin to move through the region. Showers will be with us for the afternoon before tapering off this evening with the cold front.

Showers will drop around a quarter inch, give or take, of rain through the region.  Showers will likely last from midday until the end of the PM rush, with perhaps a lingering shower accompanying the cold front as it pushes through later this evening.  Showers may start in the form of snow over the Poconos but will gradually transition over to rain although highs up there will not be much above freezing up there.  It will be warmer south of Blue Mountain as highs should get safely into the mid 40's in Allentown, around 50 in the Philly metro, and low to mid 50's south of the city (warmest across Lower Delaware).
