March 19th, 2013 Forecast

Precipitation this evening will gradually transition to rain for all locations, with such a transition taking place from south to north over the course of the evening hours.  We'll provide another update later on with more details on tonight's precipitation and how that transition is taking place through the region.  Temperatures will rise somewhat, especially city and southeast, through the evening hours as warmer air nudges up from the south.   Rain (and icy rain/snow in the Poconos) should wind down after Midnight, with just a few showers around by daybreak tomorrow.

Morning temperatures should range from the lower 30's in Allentown to the mid 40's at the Shore and across Delaware.  Winds, which will be gusty at times tonight, will diminish later on.

Tuesday features a lingering morning shower, with skies transitioning from cloudy to variably cloudy. It will be breezy in the afternoon hours.  Highs could get to 50 or so in the city, with upper 40's north and west, lower 50's likely south and southeast of Philadelphia.  West breezes will increase to 12 to 20 mph with higher gusts.

The chill returns for another few days, with 40's for highs likely through the balance of the work week before we try to nudge back to 50 this weekend. There could be a few snow (or rain) showers on Wednesday night but the balance of the week looks dry at this point.
