Rainy, Cold Day Ahead Tomorrow

Clouds will thicken tonight ahead of an unusually cold Tuesday that will also contain rain.

Showers will move in before the morning commute tomorrow and continue through the day.

A sharp temperature contrast will exist between Philadelphia and Connecticut.

While the temperature likely flirts with 80 in southeast Pennsylvania, Connecticut temperatures will be stuck in the 40s!

Given the cold air at the surface, severe thunderstorms are unlikely tomorrow. A few rumbles of thunder are possible, though.

The rain will be very helpful at mitigating the threat for brush fires.

Wednesday will be a world's better. Full sunshine with highs near 60.

The late-week period of Thursday into Friday looks primarily dry, though First Alert forecasters are watching a disturbance that will be just southwest of the region.

A few showers are possible Friday if that system makes it farther to the north. Temperatures will be close to 60 degrees.

An early look at the weekend shows dry weather with high temperatures in the middle 60s – seasonable for the time of year!
