Wild weather brings heavy rain, wind gusts, warm temps


A strong cold front that blew through the Philadelphia region overnight, producing heavy rain and wind in some areas, will yield to an almost spring-like afternoon before temperatures drop again.

A severe thunderstorm watch expired at 6 a.m. for the area. The front did not cause widespread problems – other and downed, rain-slickened leaves. The fast-moving front was the same one that brought severe weather, including deadly tornadoes, to the west.

As the system moved off the coast this morning, it was expected to be followed by some lingering showers, then give way to a sunny afternoon with wind gusts up to 35 mph. Highs will peak in the upper 60s, before falling into the 50s by late afternoon.

Tonight should be mostly clear with lows in the upper 30s.

Then, things remain cool. The high for Tuesday is only expected in the upper 40s. Wednesday highs should reach 50.
