While a major snowstorm was recently denied in the Philadelphia area, that will not be the case for cold air into midweek.
After a number of March record low temperatures were set in the mid-Atlantic on Tuesday, daily record low temperatures may fall Wednesday morning.
Highs are forecast to be in the 30s on Wednesday and Thursday, which is well below the average high in the upper 40s.
Temperatures will slowly climb during the balance of the week with highs forecast to reach the 40s Friday and the lower 50s on Saturday.
A southern storm system will be monitored for possible wet snow and rain in the local area Thursday. Odds favor this storm to stay to the south and east of Philadelphia.
According to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dave Dombek, "If it is any consolation to the wintry weather, Tuesday morning is likely to be the coldest morning in the area until next winter."
