Temperatures will average near to above normal through much of the coming weekend around Philadelphia.

High temperatures will fall by a couple of degrees each of the next few days, starting in the middle 60s on Wednesday and ending the week in the upper 40s.

The typical high for the city during early April is near 60 F.

The week will not be entirely free of rain, however.

Spotty showers are possible Wednesday and Thursday with a chance of more general rainfall Thursday night into Friday.

The rain and a flow off the ocean will hold temperatures back on Friday. Highs this day may be in the upper 40s.
