What's going on with the weather today? The answer: a whole lot of nothing (and we're fine with that)! High temperatures are expected to be near to slightly below normal this afternoon with mostly sunny skies. Enjoy the great afternoon! Summer is ready to make a return in full force later this week. There is increasing confidence that most of the area will experience an extended period of above normal temperatures starting this week into early next week. Stay tuned as the weekend nears and the heat approaches.

One of the biggest threats to Philly murals? New construction

The 'Dream in Flight' mural at Point Breeze Avenue and Dickinson Street

This article has 3 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

Back in 2014, the John Coltrane mural at 32nd and Diamond got the wrecking ball to make room for an apartment complex. A year later, Temple...

The new one stands at 29th and Diamond, overlooking the same Strawberry Mansion neighborhood as its first iteration.

A mural commemorating famous African American printmaker Dox Trash used to be on display at 16th and Girard, now half-covered by a new apartment complex

    One of the biggest threats to Philly murals? New construction
    In Point Breeze, the "Dream in Flight" mural is a symbol. "It represents people coming together," said Alfred Rodgers, 53, who owns Goodman's clothing store on Point Breeze Avenue near Dickinson, about a hundred feet away. Commissioned by Mural Arts, the image of a young boy with a dove in his outstretched hand was painted by community artist Josh Sarantitis in 2000.

Fog has lifted for most area except for a few areas along the immediate coastline. Warmer, more seasonable temperatures are in the forecast for this afternoon, making a nice comeback from yesterday's cooler weather. A weak cold front is poised to move through the area this evening, increasing our chance for showers and thunderstorms late this afternoon through the evening. Storms should remain scattered as they move from northwest to southeast. There is a chance that a few storms could be strong to severe with damaging wind gusts and/or small hail. Note that storms will likely be scattered and so not everyone will be impacted.

Noon update: Skies are still overcast over much of the area, though the warm front is beginning to move through southern Delaware as you can see by the wind barbs on the station plot (wind comes from the direction of the barbs). The northward progression of the front will ultimately determine how unstable the atmosphere becomes this afternoon and evening. Storms are expected to stay primarily over Maryland, Delaware, extreme southeast Pennsylvania, and southern New Jersey. Hi-resolution model runs have been suggesting stronger storms may form a little more to the southeast, so threats to areas north of I-195 appear less likely at this time. Stay tuned for more updates throughout the day as this is a very dynamic and evolving system. Have a great Saturday!
