"A noticeably cooler day is in store despite plenty of sunshine on Wednesday," Senior Meteorologist Carl Erickson said. "Northerly breezes will put an extra chill in the air."

AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures will be in the upper 40s for much of Wednesday afternoon.

The winds will gradually taper off toward Wednesday evening, but a warm jacket or sweatshirt may come in handy.

The Phillies will battle the Braves at 7:05 p.m. at Citizens Bank Park Wednesday evening. If you are heading out to the game, expect a first pitch temperature of 49 F with an AccuWeather RealFeel® of 43 F.

Dry weather will prevail into Thursday and Friday as highs slowly rebound into the upper 50s.
