WEATHER BLOG: Black Friday
While Friday is starting out fairly sunny and chilly, the afternoon will be quite mild. And as a cold front, which is currently bringing some shower activity to the eastern Great Lakes and Ohio early this morning, reaches the I-95 corridor this evening, there will at least be more in the way of clouds seen around here.
For now, the idea that it will shower early Friday night will be tabled because it appears that most of the hit or miss shower activity will be occurring north of the Maryland border. Highs will be near 60 this afternoon, but it should turn noticeably colder later, and temperatures Saturday and Sunday will be no higher than the 40s.
You can see the cold front on the radar tracking through western New York and Pennsylvania. Timing of arrival looks to be between 6-8 p.m. in Allentown down to Washington, D.C./Baltimore, 7-9 p.m. in Philadelphia and 9-11 p.m. in New York City.
Most of the precipitation expected to dry up associated with the front. Otherwise, big story is the brisk and cooler air that moves in beginning Saturday. Temperatures will take until Monday to begin to moderate.
