EVENING: Decreasing winds, clear and chilly. Temps in the 50s.

TONIGHT: Clear and calm. Low 47.

SATURDAY: Sunny start, increasing afternoon clouds, high 70.

Tonight will be our coolest night of the season so far with temperatures everywhere dropping into the 40s. It’s not out of the question that some of our coolest spots north and west of Harrisburg dip to near 40.

We keep the fall-feel for the weekend with Saturday’s high near 70 degrees. Sunday features more clouds and perhaps a few showers. A storm or two are also possible Sunday, but coverage will be limited. Overall, some areas could see a tenth or two of rain on Sunday, with plenty of dry time to be outdoors.

The front that moves through Sunday will push another round of seasonably cooler air into the area for early next week. Highs will once again be in the 60s and 70s with lows in the 40s and 50s.

We are closely monitoring Tropical Depression 9 which officially formed this morning just north of Venezuela. The storm is expected to strengthen into a hurricane as it approaches the southeast US next week. Depending on the track…it is possible our area sees some rain but even if so, it wouldn’t happen until likely late next Friday or Saturday. We’ll keep watching trends.
