The work week starts wet and chilly but a gradual warm-up is coming. NBC10 First Alert Weather meteorologist Bill Henley takes a look ahead, including the forecast for the Philadelphia Marathon this weekend.
If rainy days and Mondays get you down, stand-by, it will get better, we'll be drying out Monday afternoon.
Shortly after 8 Monday morning, some neighborhoods were already seeing the rain come to an end.
In the afternoon, we'll all be drying out, but it will stay chilly for this time of year and it will still be Monday.
Temperatures peak near 50 degrees Monday afternoon, then with clearing skies in the evening, the numbers will drop through the 40s.
A gradual warming trend begins Tuesday afternoon, with Thursday and Saturday set to be the warmest days of the week.
Runners at this weekend's
Philadelphia Marathon and Half Marathon will face different weather challenges.
Rain could move in ahead of Saturday's half marathon as temps push into the 50s during the day. Good and bad news for marathon runners. The good is that Saturday's rain will be over before Sunday's race begins, the bad is that cold gusty winds will kick in to make if feel like it's near freezing.
Low temps will remain mostly in the 30s, or low 40s, through the week.
