Temperatures will rebound to seasonable levels into the weekend around Philadelphia, but rain is in the offing.

A second batch of rain will roll in Saturday and continue into Sunday following some light rain on Friday.

The rain will move into southeastern and south-central Pennsylvania during Saturday morning, where trout fishing season begins.

Temperatures will peak in the 50s Saturday. Sunday will be cooler, but far from the chill experienced in recent days.

Monday and Tuesday of next week are projected to bring at least partial sunshine and high temperatures in the upper 50s to near 60 F.
