February is starting off on a very warm note as temperatures rise into the mid 50's to mid 60's for highs this afternoon. I'm sure many might be wondering if today is the first day of April or February at this point. Still, don't get too used to these warm conditions.
A series of disturbances will move through the Philadelphia and New York City metropolitan area this morning with a few scattered showers. The shower threat will linger on through tonight, however most locations will experience scattered clouds, winds from the southwest, and very warm weather conditions.
A cold front will move through the region by tomorrow morning with additional scattered showers. Behind this cold front, a cooler air mass will build into the region with near to slightly above normal temperatures expected to return. You know when a cold front moves through to cool temperatures down and surface temperatures are still above normal, that this winter simply is unlike the past two. That said, expect clouds to clear out by tomorrow afternoon with temperatures rising into the mid 40's to lower 50's for highs.
High pressure will take control tomorrow evening and remain in control through early next week with generally tranquil weather conditions. An area of low pressure will pass to the south of the Philadelphia metropolitan area on Sunday, however all precipitation is expected to remain south of the region. A cold front will move through on Tuesday with scattered showers expected. Temperatures will range from the upper 20's to mid 30's for lows and upper 30's to mid 40's for highs through early next week.
