After a morning frost threat around the area, this week promises a mixed bag of mostly springlike weather. Expect a chance of rain on several days, a weekday warm-up, and a possibly very pleasant weekend.

Highs should top out in the mid 60s today, but rise into the 70s for a few days, with Friday reaching the mid 80s.

Tuesday could see scattered showers, with a chance of afternoon thunderstorms, said meteorologist Kristin Kline.

A little rain is also possible Wednesday and Thursday, with another shot at afternoon thunderstorms on Friday.

Toward the end of last week, the worries about rain pretty much dried up, with only 0.6 inches on Thursday and only a trace on Saturday at Philadelphia International Airport.

Saturday and Sunday look precipitation-free with highs in the mid to upper 70s.

Although strong gusts and downpours can always happen with thunderstorms, no big threats are anticipated for the coming week.
