After a weekend where winter had a brief visit with a few inches of snow and temperatures near freezing for highs, the mild winter pattern that's been in place since December returns to the Philadelphia and New York City metropolitan areas.
High pressure will produce tranquil weather conditions today through tomorrow afternoon with winds from the west at 5 to 15 mph, gusting to 30 mph at times. Temperatures will return to near normal levels with lows in the lower to upper 20's for lows and upper 30's to upper 40's for highs.
A series of weak disturbances will produce a threat for scattered showers tomorrow night on through Thursday. However, these cold fronts will feature Pacific air masses rather than the cold, arctic air masses from this weekend, which mean temperatures will average near to above normal throughout the week. Temperatures will range from the upper 20's to mid 30's for lows and upper 40's to mid 50's for highs.
High pressure will build into the region by Thursday night through Sunday with clearing skies. Temperatures will return to near normal levels with lows in the upper 20's to mid 30's and highs in the upper 30's to upper 40's for highs.
