Early clouds/shower. Sun/Windy PM

Clouds and fog cover the region this morning.  A cold front is currently to our west and will be moving through early this afternoon.  Not much precipitation with it, but there is a threat of an isolated shower or two as it passes through.  After the frontal passage, clouds will decrease and the winds will really pick up.  They will be out of the west and northwest around 15-20 mph with gusts over 30 mph.

Temperatures in the lower to middle 40's this morning will warm into the 50's to near 60 by the early afternoon hours, with the best shot at 60 degrees from Philly on south.  Lower 50's seem like a reasonable bet for the Lehigh Valley, with mid and upper 50's common for highs in the suburbs just north and northwest of the city.  High temperatures probably get reached between 1 and 3 PM, with temperatures slowly falling afterwards as the frontal boundary passes through.

Another shot of cold air comes in for tomorrow and Wednesday as we struggle to get out of the 40's both days.
