    Fresh Cool October-like Air Headed to Philadelphia

    Sunday's rebound in temperatures in Philadelphia will be short-lived with more October-like cool air on the way.

    After a milder end to the weekend, a cold front will prevent an even warmer day than Sunday unfolding on Monday.

    Temperatures on Monday will top out at around 75 degrees, while the front triggers a shower or two.

    Anyone with outdoor plans on Monday, however, should not use the showers as an excuse to cancel those plans. The showers will be light and spotty, allowing most of the day and some places to stay dry.


    Residents and visitors will just want to keep an umbrella handy.

    In the wake of the front, the arrival of fresh cool air will have Monday night and Tuesday feeling more like early October than mid-September.

    Temperatures Monday night will drop down to 54 degrees in Center City and the 40s in the northern and western suburbs, then will be held to the lower 70s on Tuesday underneath bright sunshine.

    Just like over the weekend, the cool air will not linger long in the Northeast. A warming trend will commence Wednesday with temperatures set to approach the 85-degree mark on Friday.

    Tuesday's dry weather will also persist through at least Thursday.
