PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Friday started off cloudy, but the sun should return quickly. You'll detect a hint of spring in the air as temperatures surge to the upper 50s. 

We're expecting a high of 58 degrees in Philadelphia.

Saturday looks pretty similar, but clouds will increase and we'll see the chance for a few spotty showers in the afternoon (best chance north).

Sunday is looking dry and very mild, pretty nice for your Super Bowl Sunday festivities. In fact, the temps here in the Philly area should be nearly the same as they will be in Vegas!  Below normal for them, above normal for us.

A potentially stronger system may impact us next week - models are coming into slightly better agreement that this would be a Monday night into Tuesday system bringing mainly rain, possibly with some snow mixing in as the system departs - and this will usher in a return to a cold winter airmass by Valentine's Day.
