Sunny days will be hard to come by in Philadelphia, with several rounds of rain and drizzle in the forecast.
This will be a good week to utilize AccuWeather.com MinuteCast™ to see if an umbrella is needed before heading out and about.
Chilly air is forecast to return to the region on Thursday into Friday with the potential for another wintry mix event by the end of the week over some interior locations of the Northeast.
The Philadelphia area will fluctuate between two distinctly different air masses throughout this week into the weekend. This will cause temperatures to shift from day to day, with high temperatures ranging from the middle 40s to lower 50s.
Even though meteorological winter has begun, several days will feel more like mid-November, rather than early December.
Those heading to Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday for the 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Seattle Seahawks can leave the winter coat at home. A raincoat, or perhaps an umbrella, is all that will be needed, with a forecast calling for some on-and-off drizzle and a high near 50.
