Top Stories

First round of steady rain this week arrives Monday night...

OVERNIGHT: Mostly Cloudy, Areas Of Patchy Fog. Lo 54. Winds: Light.

MONDAY: Mostly Cloudy, Warm, Showers Arrive Toward Evening. Hi 75. Winds: SE 5-10 mph.

TUESDAY: Rain, Tapering To Showers Late. Turning Breezy & Cool. PM Temps Stuck In The 50s. Winds: NW 10-20mph.

A few light showers are possible this evening…mainly north of the PA turnpike. This is as a warm front lifts north through the region. Behind the front, overnight conditions should be mainly dry and quite mild with overnight lows dropping into the 50s. Watch for some areas of fog first thing Monday morning.

Monday will be a warm day with highs soaring into the mid-70s! We’ll see clouds increase during the afternoon, but most of the day will be dry with at least partial sunshine. By Monday evening, a cold front approaches from our west, and that will deliver our next chance for more numerous showers and perhaps even a thunderstorm. As the front slides through, a new area of low pressure will develop along the coast, throwing more moisture our way Monday night through much of Tuesday. Rainfall amounts won’t get too out of control, but periods of steady, light rain should get us to 0.5-1.0″ of accumulated rainfall by the time the system exits Tuesday night.

Drier conditions return for Wednesday and Thursday. A slow-moving area of low pressure in a deep-digging trough should move through the central and southern US. This upper level trough should help a coastal storm develop by Friday. This system likely brings us rain locally Friday into Saturday, and that could be heavier depending on the track of the storm. We will keep tracking that, but either way we do not see a lot of sunshine as a result and the cooler weather with highs in the 50s and low 60s is here too.
