Significant warm up for the upcoming week

Posted: Updated:

After just a few snow showers early Sunday morning, the day has been rather uneventful. Mostly cloudy skies moved in shortly after sunrise, but our temperatures have climbed nicely, above normal for a change with highs into the lower 40s across much of the Midstate.

Look for clouds to decrease into early Monday morning as our weather pattern shifts. Northwesterly winds will kick up to start off the new workweek, and it will be blustery at times Monday, but the sunshine should be abundant. With temperatures near 40, Monday will actually be the coldest day of the upcoming week, with mid 40s by midweek, near 50 by Friday, and into the mid 50s for next weekend. There isn't much snow left, but you could consider this the 'January Thaw' as a ridge of high pressure across the Mid Atlantic allows warmth to build across the eastern two-thirds of the continental U.S. Record highs are unlikely to be challenged, but temperatures will be a solid 20+ degrees above seasonal averages.

The best chance for some disorganized rain showers looks to be Friday, and again on Sunday as a couple of fronts skirt by the region. Any precipitation would fall as all rain, with even overnight lows above the freezing mark.
