Discussion

Spring-fever alert continues for another day here as temperatures will once again approach 60 degrees. While much of the US has enjoyed a mild winter, a good part of the rest of the world has suffered from winter's cold including places like Alaska, western Canada, parts of Asia and now Europe is in a deep freeze (e.g., Athens, Greece 35 degrees with snow showers late yesterday). Here in Philly, January was well-above normal temperature-wise with temperatures 4.9 degrees above the norm. February will begin with a cold front sliding through the region later today and it will usher in cooler air for tonight and tomorrow. A wave of low pressure will then ride along the front tomorrow morning and that will likely spread a little rain from Philly to points south and east with some afternoon clearing possible. More sunshine is likely on Friday to close out the work week. Elsewhere in the US, there will be a major snowstorm for much of the Colorado Rockies region over the next few days and then this storm will then dump heavy snow on Kansas and Nebraska as it slides slowly northeastward.
