Light showers Tuesday followed by much colder air for mid-week

Forecast

A freeze watch is in effect for Wednesday morning as temperatures tumble...

TONIGHT: Increasing Clouds, Turning Chilly. Lo 40. Winds: W 5-10 mph.

TUESDAY: AM Clouds, Few Showers, PM Clearing. Hi 52. Winds: NW 5-15 mph.

WEDNESDAY: AM Freeze, Mix of Clouds and Sun. Breezy. Hi 50.

The next cold front will approach the area late tonight, ushering in more more clouds and cool air as temperatures drop into the low 40s.

Some light showers will move through Tuesday morning with the front, but we’re not expecting much measurable rain. The bigger story is the air-mass behind the front. We clear out by Tuesday evening but temperatures begin to tumble Tuesday night.

Overnight lows by Wednesday morning will drop well down into the 30s, and lows will stay in that range for the rest of the week. A FREEZE WATCH has been posted for Wednesday morning as lows will be near 32° for some backyards. This may be the end of the growing season as cold November air takes over. As cold air moves over the warmer lake waters, there will be some lake-effect snow showers Wednesday and Thursday, mainly over western Pennsylvania. It’s not out of the question though that a few flakes make it into the mountains, although most of the week is looking dry for Central PA.

Earlier, we were watching a storm that would attempt to organize along the east coast toward late week, but the push of cool, dry air from Canada should be enough to keep this storm suppressed south and east of our region. So aside from an increase in clouds late Thursday, the weather will cooperate although it will stay chilly right through next weekend with highs only in the low to mid-50s. Get ready for a new month…and a new weather pattern! Stay warm!
