PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- After a cloudy start to Saturday, the blazing sun will zap some of those clouds and the high temperature will nearly reach 70 in Philadelphia.


Following the passage of a cold front skies will clear to sunshine for the afternoon.

Colder air filters into the area tonight with lows in the upper 30s to the low 40s.

Conditions are ripe for frost in parts of the upper Lehigh Valley and Poconos where lows approach freezing.


Sunday begins breezy, and chilly with some sun and high clouds.  Clouds will increase tomorrow as a system passes by to our south.

Across the region on Sunday, we'll see high temperatures 10-15 degrees below average in the mid- to upper 50s. That's well below the average high for this time of year, which is around 67 degrees.

Skies will clear Sunday night as high pressure arrives with sunny skies for Monday and Tuesday.

Highs may approach 70 on Tuesday.
