TONIGHT: Becoming Partly Cloudy and Breezy. Lo 54. Winds: W 10-15 mph.
FRIDAY: AM Clouds, PM Sun, Windy! Hi 75. Winds: W 10-20 mph. Gusts to 30 mph.
SATURDAY: Mix of Clouds and Sun, Late PM Stray Showers. Hi 80.
SUNDAY: Mostly Cloudy, Peeks of Sun. Scattered Showers and Storms Hi 82.
Overnight more clearing is expected and the winds will pick up as the low exits to the east and high pressure barrels into the Northeast.
Tomorrow is drier and more seasonable with highs about 10 degrees warmer than our Thursday. The winds will be strong though as gusts could easily reach 30 mph. By tomorrow evening the winds will die down some and it will be user-friendly and dry with temperatures in the upper 60s-lower 70s.
We continue to monitor the trends for Saturday. The majority of the day will be dry, but we may be fighting through thicker clouds to start and end the day. Some of the model guidance shows leftover cloud cover from the west rolling in to start the day. Then as those clouds break, an approaching front will bring additional cloud cover to end the day. Western areas could see a stray late shower as the front gets closer.
Father’s Day will be like a typical summer day around Central PA: it will not be a washout, but we’ll have to be on guard for showers and storms. It will be more humid too with highs in the 80s. The unsettled, much more summer-like pattern continues into early next week as highs begin inching back into the mid-80s with daily storm chances.
