Philly, brace for a lively mix of spring weather in the coming week. The National Weather Service in Philadelphia has laid out a forecast that certainly keeps the umbrellas close and the jackets at hand. Today's weather starts on a sunny note, with a breezy afternoon in store as winds pick up to 20 mph, possibly gusting up to 30 mph.

Tonight, keep your ears peeled for the rumble of thunder as there's a 30% chance of showers and storms, primarily before 11 pm. Following a balmy day, temperatures will dip to a moderate 58 degrees, but don't be fooled by the drop, gusty winds from earlier may linger.

The start of the workweek looks promising with a sunny Monday and temperatures soaring close to 76 degrees. But don't pack away the coats yet, as the evening brings a cooler low around 50 degrees—ideal for enjoying a starry spring night.

As for Tuesday and Wednesday, the city can expect more sun with a high near 74 and 66, respectively. However, Wednesday ushers in a 50% chance of showers post 8 am, so commuting Philadelphians might want to grab that rain gear. Showers become more likely by Wednesday night, with forecasts placing the odds at 70%.

Looking ahead, Thursday and Friday won't stray far from the showery trend, both days sporting a noteworthy 40% chance of rain. Saturday, however, promises a break with mostly sunny skies and a more modest 30% chance of showers. Throughout the week, daily highs fluctuate from the low 60s to the mid-70s, telling tales of a spring that's both fickle and fair to the residents of the City of Brotherly Love.
