Soggy Week In Philly
The official high in Philadelphia on Monday, 60, fell short of the daily record, but the weather did quite a decent impersonation of April, and forecasters say February won’t act much like itself until the weekend — at the earliest.
Daytime readings will be well above averages through the workweek, and it’s at least possible that the thermometer makes a run at 60 again Thursday night or early Friday. Overnight lows Tuesday and Wednesday will be above the average daytime highs. And rain, maybe lots of it, is in the forecast for Tuesday through Friday.
Punxsutawney Phil, the prognosticating rodent, might be on to something. In case you missed it, he failed to see his shadow on Sunday, the folklore harbinger of an early spring.
Computer models are saying not so fast, suggesting hints of at least a modest transition to winter during the second half of the weekend and perhaps later in the month. Temperatures on Saturday will be close to where they should be, with highs in the lower 40s.
