Philly Weekend Weather Outlook

Last Updated

It appears that the extreme cold that was expecteded to spawn low pressure directly over us will to stay over the Appalachians and our area will be indirectly affected by that initial upper air impulse.   The secondary coastal low is now expected to form offshore, and both will be too far south and then too far east to directly affect us.  There continues to be differences in the models regarding the amount of showers/snow flurries, but the trend has been that much, if not all, will miss us.

It will get colder and WINDY, but the chance of light snow showers here is looking slimmer and slimmer.

GFS model forecast early Sunday

Our weather this weekend will be dominated by an upper air trough that will almost cut off over the northeast. There isn’t much moisture but the pool of cold air aloft will cause some cloudiness each afternoon.

The amount of cloudiness may be greater than is currently being forecast and may reduce the high temperatures each day. The upper air flow will also cause windy conditions, especially Sunday morning.

For Saturday, sunny early, then periods of cloudiness early afternoon. Breezy. Clouds dissipate late afternoon. High 63.

For Sunday, very similar conditions, a bit windier in the morning before some cloudiness develops in the afternoon. High 64.
