The latest push of Canadian air will slowly moderate over Philadelphia during the balance of the week.

After temperatures dip to their lowest levels of the season so far Wednesday morning, in the lower 40s in the chilliest suburbs to near 50 in Center City, highs will trend upward through the 70s Wednesday and Thursday, reaching the lower 80s Friday.

If you are heading to Citizens Bank Park to enjoy some late-season baseball during the evenings for the Phillies versus Marlins series, bring a jacket, sweatshirt or sweater and wear long sleeves.

There is the potential for fog developing early Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Commuters who drive may want to allow some extra travel time as a result.

For the football game Thursday night between the Eagles and the Chiefs at Lincoln Financial Field, temperatures will fall through the 70s under a clear to partly cloudy sky with light winds.

Unfortunately, for folks with outdoor plans, the next chance of rain is during the second half of the weekend as that cool front moves through the region.
