Winds continue to whip into Monday

Posted: Updated:

Not the best of hair-days for folks in the Midstate, with northwesterly winds gusting up and over 30 mph at times through the afternoon. The gusty breeze is being caused by competing weather systems in the upper levels of the atmosphere. A storm to our east, and a sprawling area of high pressure and cold air to our west are pinching our region, and therefore, the winds will continue to whip into the overnight.

Expect mostly clear skies with lows dipping into the mid teens. Coupled with the winds, it will feel closer to zero at times, so bundle up if you are out through the overnight.

Presidents Day the winds will die down, with mostly sunny skies and slightly warmer temperatures into the mid to upper 30s. Clouds will push in by late in the day, leading to a batch of wintry weather early Tuesday morning. It does appear temperatures will be cold enough for a little freezing rain, or even sleet or snow at the very start of things Tuesday, but it should all quickly change to rain as warmer air pushes into the Commonwealth. Expect temperatures to reach the 40s by afternoon, with just a few scattered rain showers. For now, the Tuesday morning commute bears watching.

Enjoy your Presidents Day!
