April 16th, 2013 Forecast

Showers and drizzle, most of which occurred to the south of Philly today, will linger around portions of the region through tonight as the weak disturbance responsible for it pushes out into the Atlantic.  Milder air aloft will continue to filter down to the surface, with temperatures warming over the balance of the work week.

Tonight features a mostly cloudy sky through the night -- maybe a sprinkle or shower linger around, especially close to the coast.  Drizzle and light fog are also possible, with better chances of that south of the city than north.  Lows tonight will generally be in the 40's.

Tomorrow features us nudging 70 in most spots away from the ocean in the afternoon with skies gradually becoming brighter over the course of the morning hours.  A weak disturbance slides down from the northwest along a cool front that stalls out nearby.  That disturbance brings a chance of showers and storms in the afternoon hours, especially across Central and Northeastern Pennsylvania.  Southerly winds at 10 to 15 mph, perhaps gusting higher, will keep the Shore a bit cooler (around 60 or just above that).
