Today brought brilliant blue skies and seasonable December weather! High pressure is sliding in directly over us, so tonight should be mainly clear and chilly with lows in the 20s. Be ready for a chilly start to Monday!
Monday will be a seasonable day with variable cloudiness and highs in the upper 40s. Clouds thicken Monday night, leading to our next round of light showers Tuesday. It won’t be a washout by any means, but occasional showers will be possible throughout the day, with rainfall not expected to exceed a third of an inch. Showers could linger into Wednesday morning, before conditions dry out and warm up by the afternoon. It’s possible some of us get close to 60 for a high! With how fast the flow of weather has been lately there is a chance that we salvage some sunshine before sunset Wednesday as conditions clear.
There’s plenty of uncertainty for late week, but it’s most likely we’ll see a break in the action Thursday before the next system rolls through Friday. The track and strength remains up in the air, but most guidance tracks steady rain into the area by Friday morning, sticking around into Friday afternoon. If we trend a little colder ahead of the storm, parts of the area could see snow, but right now the best chance for that would be across northern PA and into New York. Either way a wintry mix still remains a possibility, even if just for a brief period of time.
Behind this system, temperatures stay near seasonable averages into next weekend with highs in the mid-40s. The active weather should continue even into next week as increasing clouds and showers are possible by late next Sunday evening.
