Philly residents can look forward to clear skies and warmer days ahead, but not without a chance of mid-week showers. Today's forecast promises sunshine with highs around the mid-60s, followed by a clear evening as temperatures dip back to the 40s. The pleasant weather is set to continue into Tuesday, warming up to near 69 degrees under sunny skies, with light, variable winds shifting south, according to the National Weather Service.

The weather takes a slight turn Tuesday night as we see a 30% chance of showers after 3 a.m., with the lows hanging around a mild 50 degrees. As Wednesday rolls in, the chance of precipitation jumps to 50% with partly sunny conditions and a noticeable increase in the breeze, which could see gusts as high as 30 mph. Despite the likelihood of rain, the day's high will remain at a comfortable 68 degrees.

For those hoping for dry nights, you're in luck as Wednesday evening's chance of showers wraps up before 9 p.m., leaving the skies mostly clear with a low around 37. The clear conditions will stretch into Thursday with sunny skies and a high reaching the 60s. Looking towards the weekend, Friday stays sunny with a daytime high of 64 and an evening low of 42. But don't put away those umbrellas just yet; Saturday night brings a 30% chance of showers, continuing into a partly sunny Sunday with highs soaring to 75 degrees, and another pesky 30% shot of rain.

The National Weather Service's Hazardous Weather Outlook for Philadelphia County keeps the potential weather threats at bay for now, with a low probability of widespread hazardous conditions. However, minor coastal flooding is a concern for Tuesday, the NWS reports. Philadelphians should stay updated as the week unfolds, especially if you're near the water. For those keen on contributing to the weather conversation, the NWS encourages weather spotters to report significant conditions according to standard procedures. Keep the community informed and help fellow citizens navigate the weekly weather swing.
