PHILADELPHIA - Due to the high temperatures forecasted for today, all School District of Philadelphia Schools will dismiss early at 12:15 pm, today, Wednesday, June 18. Schools with graduation ceremony scheduled for today have the option to remain open for the ceremonies. Parents are asked to contact schools directly to confirm graduation schedules.
The general public and media are urged to monitor the District Web site at www.philasd.org for any updates. Updated information will also be posted on the District's Information Hotline at 215-400-INFO (4636).
Rain arrives for the second half of the work week. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Scattered showers are possible tonight as a cold front approaches the area. Otherwise, the best chance for rain will be Thursday afternoon and night where we'll see on and off showers and thunderstorms.
Clouds and showers linger though much of Friday. We may still see a passing shower Saturday. Unseasonably cool air returns this weekend where both days only see high temps in the mid 70s with many of us falling into the 50s at night.
