you can see the line of storms that got severe to our south a little earlier this afternoon is now off the coast. the actual front passage is a few scattered showers. not a lot of lightening or thunder but around allentown you can a little bit of intensify indication, yellow, steadier downpour and there could be a few rumbles of thunder as this pushes eject. once this front crosses, the wind are going to pick up, you'll hear allentown, atlantic city with broken records today, wilmington tied a record at 75. look at dc got to 80. tomorrow, big difference. temperatures only in the 40's and 50's behind that strong front. you can see while showers are scattereded out there. tomorrow looks like a dry day as we led to friday, we'll have the chance for few scattered snow showers, doesn't look like a big event but those will come through, just an indication of how much colder it's getting.
future wind gusts tomorrow morning could gust over 40 miles an hour all across the area. winds gradually die down in the afternoon, we'll be under a wind advisory until 1:00 tomorrow afternoon in effect for the entirety of our region, wind gust to 45, that's strong enough to blow the trash cans down the street. a stray shower overnight. mostly sunny tomorrow but windy and much colder at 51 degrees. speaking of colder, take a look at friday and saturday. temperatures barely getting to the 40's. in fact, 40 on saturday may be a tad optimistic. we warm up sunday, monday and tuesday, it's a big temperature swing down and then up again to start march. on the heels of the warmest february on record in philadelphia and a winter with a above average temperatures and below average snow, march again off to a balmy start. it certainly appears that an
early spring is upon us. will that warm pattern rather >> i think old man winter might fight one more time before spring >> march is traditionally a battle ground month. the average high temperature on march 1st is 47. but by march 31st, it shoots to 58. what about snow? 000 >> i lived here a long time. we could have snow tomorrow. >> our average date for the final snow of the year is march 15th. measurable snow as fallen as late as april. the latest date was april 19th and we've had a trace of snow even into may. to taking a look at the last snow dates over past six years, historically there's a good chance of at least a trace to fall this month. for some, this winter's warmth has been too much too soon >> i would like to see a longer colder more snow filled winter. >> i like warm weather in its time. i don't like too much or too little of it. this year i think we're going to end up with too much
>> i'm forecasting more above average temperatures for the month of march. while i don't expect a repeat of february's record temps, i do expect march to finish several degrees above average. this is due to a few factors, the recent warmth eroded the snow pack to our north meaning less snow cover, cold shots will moderate more quickly and active pacific flow will keep much of the arctic cold to the north and the stronger march sun makes it less and less likely for prolonged cold to stick around. if we have any chances for late season snow, i could see it coming during the period of march 10th through the 15th when it does look like what's happened to a few days worth of cold air. beyond that, temperatures will moderate again and our chances drop. any snow potential in march would have to be a perfect meeting of cold and moisture. which is increasingly hard to come by. it's hard to come by but not impossible. the take away expect yet another month of above average temperatures in philadelphia. every single month starting in
june of last year has been above average. and there are no to decent signals that march will be any different. if you're a snow lover, while it's too soon to say no way, chances have been decent late season storm are getting smaller and smaller by the day. again, there is that one period late next week in early the following week things look like they could get active. all hope is not lost >> i want to send a link to punxsutawney phil. take that. >> is up next with sport. busy night. breaking news about carson's throwing arm, bad news for embiid. what is jahlil okafor doing
