Rain will be heavy at times tonight, especially after midnight. This coastal storm will circulate some warmer air up from the south, so temperatures will rise overnight. Our high temperature for Wednesday will occur during the pre-dawn hours with many areas reaching 60 degrees, perhaps even exceeding 60 in points south and east of Philadelphia. Winds will gust as high as 30 mph during the night, so that rain will be a wind-driven rain.
Rain will continue on Wednesday, steadiest during the first half of the day. We'll wake up to temperatures in the 50s, but by sunset most locations will have fallen into the 30s. Wind gusts could exceed 35 mph inland, but down the Shore a Wind Advisory is in effect from 12 AM to 10 AM due to expected gusts up to 50 mph.
The rain will changeover to a brief period of snow showers overnight Wednesday night before coming to an end. Little to no accumulation is anticipated. Thanksgiving Day will be cold and windy, so dress warmly if you're heading to the parade in Philadelphia as wind chills will be in the teens and 20s. Winds will finally subside Thursday night, so although Friday will still be cold you won't have to worry about the wind chill as you shop. The first half of the weekend looks dry but chilly. The second half will be a few degrees milder but there does exist the threat for a rain shower.
