More Soaking Weather In Store For The Weekend

The sun will try its best to poke through the clouds today, but more rain is expected to put a damper on any plans for the weekend

March did not really come marching in, but it it's definitely leaving some muddy bootprints.

Even though it's the second day of the month, the sun seems shy as it hides behind the clouds.

My spring break from college starts today, and this is not what I want to see; my hopes are high for a potentially beautiful pattern next week.

Today will start out in the upper 30s with mostly cloudy skies. The sun will try its best to come out in the afternoon, which can bring the high temperatures to the low 50s. If the sun is too shy to come out, the temperatures may not reach the 50 degree mark.

By the afternoon commute, clouds will quickly take over and thicken as a storm system approaches from the southwest. 

Before I carry on, if you plan on traveling anywhere to the Mississippi River states please be careful and be tuned to the media: There is the potential for a SEVERE TORNADO OUTBREAK during the afternoon and it may be pretty substantial.

The Philadelphia suburbs are in the clear for severe weather, but there will be rain developing in the evening. It will continue overnight and into the early morning on Saturday. Night temperatures will be mild reaching the low- to mid- 40s.

Tomorrow there will be some lingering showers ending in the afternoon. As a cold front passes by, the winds will pick up from the southwest at 10 to 15 mph. 

As the evening rolls in, the skies will slightly clear up, giving partly cloudy conditions and chilly temperatures in the low- to mid-30s. West winds will blow at 8 to 12 mph.

Sunday morning will be cold with temperatures around 30 degrees and mostly cloudy skies. During the afternoon, there may be some clearing, but overall expect partly sunny conditions. The high temperatures will be cooler in the low- to mid-40s. Northwest winds at 8 to 12 mph.

Despite this dreary weather, next week is looking beautiful as a large high pressure system takes over the region giving us sunny skies and warmer temperatures.
