    Philadelphia Stays Dry Until Wednesday

    Umbrellas will not be needed in Philadelphia until Wednesday.

    High pressure will keep Philadelphia dry through Tuesday, a dramatic change from what was happening as Sandy barreled onshore one year ago.

    The arrival of fresh cool air will hold Tuesday's high to the upper 50s despite sunshine.


    Residents will have to brush the dust off their umbrellas Wednesday morning as a quick-moving storm system returns the chance of rain to the city, but any rain should taper off by the afternoon.

    A shower from another storm will graze the city on Thursday before more numerous showers could move through the city Thursday night into Friday.

    AccuWeather.com meteorologists are monitoring the potential for gusty winds to accompany Friday's showers.

    Friday's soaker should hold off until after trick-or-treating hours, but a stray shower could still be around Thursday evening.


    Ahead of the late-week storm, mild air will be drawn into the Northeast and boost temperatures in Philadelphia to around 70 degrees for both Thursday and Friday.
