TONIGHT: Scattered Showers, Becoming Steady Late. Lo 54. Winds: NE 10-15 mph.

SUNDAY: Periods of Light Rain, Breezy. Hi 58. Winds: NE 10-15 mph. Gusts to 30 mph.

MONDAY: AM Shower, Breezy & Cool. Hi 60. Winds: N 5-10 mph.

As expected, today was a raw day with cool and breezy conditions. Steadier showers amounted to a half inch to three quarters of an inch of rain in spots while other locations saw closer to a third of an inch. Off and on showers this evening will continue overnight, becoming steady again for areas south and west of Harrisburg. All eyes will be on a newly developing area of low pressure along the coast.

That new low will keep periods of rain going through Sunday, likely starting out in the west during the morning before transitioning to our central and eastern counties for the afternoon and evening. Rain won’t be terribly heavy but it will be around much of the day, with the only possible exception being areas north and west of Harrisburg which could see the steadiest rain wrap up by the afternoon. All in all, we still expect most places to end up with 1-2″ storm total rainfall.

The stubborn low finally begins to exit east Monday, but lingering showers will remain possible during the morning with clouds hanging around most of the day. Finally by Tuesday we’ll see more sun break out as highs rebound closer to average. A warm up is in store for the middle of next week as highs head back for the 70s. Enjoy it though because a strong cold front will cross late next Thursday, bringing in sharply cooler air next weekend. There’s a good chance a lot of us drop into the 30s next Saturday and Sunday morning…raising concerns for perhaps our first frost. We’ll keep you posted.
