Chilled Start Gives Way To Nice Afternoon

A cool start to the day around the region as temperatures in the 40's and low 50's dominate the landscape under mostly clear skies. Some high clouds, as depicted on satellite up above, are drifting overhead in advance of a cool front that's over the Great Lakes. That front moves through on Monday with a reinforced shot of cool for the Delaware Valley.

For us today, we'll have a milder regime than what was experienced yesterday but one that will feature some clouds from time to time. Those clouds, unlike the cool stratocumulus look of yesterday, will be mostly mid and high level and should allow for filtered sunshine around the region. With southwesterly and southerly breezes around the region today, temperatures will be several degrees milder as well.

We're projecting highs this afternoon in the mid 70's for most locations locally -- we could coax a bank thermometer-induced 77 or 78 in a few spots but many of us hang in the 73-76 range by day's end with a sky of filtered sun and clouds.
