October 26th, 2013 Forecast

Yet another frosty night on tap as we plunge different areas of the Delaware Valley close to the freezing point yet again.  Tonight, frost advisories are up for Philadelphia and the immediate surrounding counties.  Freeze Warnings are up for... well, basically everyone else, except for areas who were previously under a freeze warning already.  The National Weather Service only issues these once or twice, to indicate the end of the growing season.  If you're under one of these, make sure you take time this evening to care for plants and bring the pets inside.

Temperatures will drop down to the lower to upper 30's depending on where you are.  winds will start out of the west at 5 to 10 mph but will die down overnight.  That, combined with mostly clear skies are the perfect set up for frost or a hard freeze.  Tomorrow, the sun will make another all-day appearance with highs getting up into the mid- to upper 50's.  Winds will pick back up, from the southwest at 5 to 15 mph.

The weather broken record will continue on Sunday with temperatures edging closer to the 60-degree mark.  By Monday, we're still seeing mostly sunny skies and comfortable temperatures, with highs near 60-degrees and lows in the lower 40's.  For Tuesday, skies will start out partly cloudy but cloud cover will increase throughout the day and we'll see some showers by the evening.  Highs Tuesday will get up into the lower 60's.  By Wednesday, we'll be seeing more showers and slightly cooler temperatures.  Those temps rebound on Thursday as we get back up into the lower to mid-60's with clouds and sun.  Friday could see more precipitation but otherwise partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid-60's.
