The weather pattern through this weekend will bring temperatures fairly typical for this time of the year to Philadelphia.
Temperatures typically range from a morning low in the upper 40s to a high in the upper 60s F.
The next chance of rainfall is Friday into Saturday, as a system moves in from the Midwest. However, while there can be a couple of showers and a thunderstorm either day for outdoor activities, neither of the two days will be a washout. Temperatures both days will peak within a few degrees of 70 F.
The rainfall and light winds will reduce the risk for brush fires to spread rapidly.
Looking ahead, for folks with outdoor plans next week, the weather pattern has the potential to get very unsettled with a nearly daily dose of showers and thunderstorms.
A day or two of rain is also possible as a large storm develops over the eastern third of the nation and stalls. The pattern may also result in a several-day stretch of below-normal temperatures.
It may not be until this large storm breaks down during early May, when warmth is a frequent visitor to the region.
A tropical wave is likely to become the Atlantic Basin's next tropical storm as it approaches or crosses the Caribbean Sea later this week.
