PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Wednesday morning starts off cloudy but a little warmer than Tuesday.

There are some rain showers in the area that could affect kids waiting for the school bus or your commute to work around 7 a.m.

This bit of rain should get out of there pretty quickly. 

We can't rule out a stray shower in the afternoon but most of us should avoid them. Where there's no rain showers, we'll just see a mild and breezy day with clouds giving way to some afternoon sun.

Skies clear out into the early evening and overnight, and with clouds to hold in the heat, that leads to a chilly Thursday morning with an overnight low of 45 degrees.

Clear skies will also lead to an even cooler Friday morning, with a low of 39 degrees in the city.


There's a chance we could have some frost advisories on Friday morning.

Then heading into the weekend, the weather changes rapidly - Saturday looks much like Friday with a chilly morning and a high in the 60s, but then Sunday comes roaring in with summery heat and a high of 79 degrees.

By Monday, the high temperature will reach the mid-80s, with a high of 85 forecasted. We could see the 80s again on Tuesday.

All those 70s and 80s to close out the month mean we'll likely finish April with a warmer than usual monthly average high temperature.
