    Clouds, Showers and Some Sun Forecast for Philly

    By By Alex Sosnowski, expert senior meteorologist.

    A round of showers will swing through the Philadelphia area Thursday into Friday morning.

    A weak storm riding along a front will slide through the area, producing the sporadic rainfall.

    Despite the seemingly wet offing, the vast majority of the time will be free of rain through Friday. Total rainfall Thursday through Friday morning is likely to be less than one-quarter of an inch.

    When the rain falls, most of it will not be heavy. However, with any downpour in urban areas, there is a risk of brief poor-drainage area flooding and travel delays.


    In between the showers, the sun can peek out.

    Temperatures will average 5 to 10 degrees above normal most days into the weekend. During the middle of October, daytime highs average in the middle 60s with nighttime lows in the middle to upper 40s.

    Waves of progressively colder weather may begin to affect the area next week.
