Discussion

Last night’s batch of steady rainfall will move off to our east this morning and the precipitation will tend to slacken off during the mid-day hours; however, an approaching cold frontal system will renew the threat for occasional showers later today and early tonight and there is an outside chance that a thunderstorm mixes into the picture. Once this cold front clears the east coast early on Saturday, a clearing trend will set in with noticeable improvement for Saturday afternoon and then Sunday promises to be quite a nice day for this time of year to close out the weekend. That break in the action won’t last too long; however, as another moisture-laden system will arrive later Monday with significant rainfall possible that jeopardizes the Phillies afternoon home opener (3PM).
