Discussion

A powerful cold front will barrel towards the eastern seaboard from later today into early Friday and it’ll bring some wild weather to the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast US. Ahead of the front, heavy rains, possible thunderstorms and potentially damaging winds will develop and raise the prospects for localized flooding and power outages. It’ll become much milder as well today with temperatures soaring to the 60 degree mark by late in the day in the Philly metro region. On the back side of the front, temperatures will plunge on Friday from their mild early morning highs to near freezing by later in the afternoon. Any standing water on untreated surfaces that is left behind by the heavy rain event could freeze-up in a hurry on Friday as temperatures take a plunge. The cold air mass will stick around into the weekend with temperatures on Saturday struggling to reach the freezing mark.
