Philly: Summerlike Warmth to Slip Away by Midweek

Despite a summerlike start, cooler air will make a comeback in Philadelphia this week.

A shower or thunderstorm will rumble Tuesday as a backdoor cold front, one that advances from the northeast, swings through.

Temperatures should still manage to rise to the 80-degree mark this day before falling some in the afternoon as a couple of showers linger.

In the wake of the front during the evening on Tuesday, shorts and sunglasses will likely be replaced with jackets and umbrellas.

Wednesday is shaping up to be a damp and cooler day with a few showers around. Temperatures will struggle to climb out of the 60s.

A rebound in temperatures will occur Thursday ahead of the cold front heightening concerns for late-week heavy rain. However, temperatures will not soar significantly with a high in the mid-70s expected.

The front, combined with embedded tropical moisture, will bring the risk of flooding downpours on Friday.

Fresh cool air following the front and a slow-moving storm system set to take shape over the Northeast or just offshore will prevent a repeat of the summerlike warmth next weekend or early the following week.
