TONIGHT: Mostly Cloudy, Stray Shower. Lo 38.
WEDNESDAY: Partly Cloudy, Mild! Hi 52.
THURSDAY: AM Light Showers, PM Scattered Showers. Rain Totals Less Than 0.2″. Hi 56.
Clouds and a few showers continue to move in this evening. It will stay damp overnight and into the pre-dawn hours of Wednesday morning. This won’t be a lot of rain, just enough to wet the sidewalks. In fact we are likely to see only a trace- there will be a better chance of measurable rain for Thursday.
Highs will keep trending upward this week as we reach the 50s by tomorrow! Another surge of mild air moves in for tomorrow. Wednesday will be dry and skies will clear leading to a pleasant afternoon. The next best chance for rain will come Thursday as an area of low-pressure rides through the Ohio Valley. Scattered showers are likely throughout the day, but again, it doesn’t look like a ton of rain. The low will be west again which means Central PA will be on the warmer side of the storm. 60° is possible for some of our southern counties by late week! Where is the cold air? Bottled up near the pole — certainly not here!
Behind this system, we’ll cool down a bit for the start of next weekend. A weak coastal low could bring us some rain showers by Saturday, but it doesn’t look like anything significant at this time. Highs will be in the 40s for the weekend, still above seasonal averages. Just to repeat…no snow in sight either. We’ll keep monitoring, but next week also looks mild, with highs back in the 50s! Sorry Phil, even if winter makes an eventual comeback, we certainly won’t have 6 weeks of it. You were wrong!
