November 21st, 2013 Forecast

Another chilly night is on tap for the Delaware and Lehigh Valleys tonight.  Look for partly cloudy skies with lows dipping into the 20s in many of the northwest suburbs, but temperatures should hold in the low to mid 30s closer to Philadelphia.  Northeast winds off the ocean could create extra cloud cover at the Shore, keeping temperatures a little bit milder there.

Sun will give way to clouds on Thursday in advance of our next cold front which is set to arrive Friday night.  As northeast winds shift from the southeast, temperatures will turn milder and reach the low 50s for highs.  The only exception will be north and west of Philadelphia where clouds will take over sooner, holding temperatures in the upper 40s there.  Again, winds off the ocean may cause some extra cloud cover for the Shore.

Friday will be mostly cloudy but seasonable as we await the cold front.  Showers will arrive Friday night and last into Saturday morning, but by Saturday afternoon the sun will return.  However, behind that cold front is the coldest air of the season so far, so temperatures will fall throughout Saturday afternoon.  Sunday won't get out of the 30s, but wind chills will hold in the 20s as winds gust to 40 mph.  Monday will still be breezy but not as windy as Sunday.

A storm system could develop in the southeast early next week and work its way up the East Coast, arriving into our area by Tuesday or Wednesday.  If this is the case, rain and wind would impact our weather sometime in the early or middle part of next week.  We will keep an eye on it for you as things could change since it's still almost a week away.
