SATURDAY: Passing Clouds, Seasonable. Hi 64.
Most of the fall season so far has featured warm and dry weather with the occasional cooler spell. That pattern looks to continue for the foreseeable future. While there may be a shower or two at times in the extended forecast, a soaking rain is likely not in the cards for Central PA anytime soon.
What a beautiful start to the afternoon! Temperatures have climbed to the low 70s, and we should be on track for highs to hit the upper 70s. Sunshine should for the majority of the day with clouds arriving closer to evening as a front gets closer. There could be a passing shower after sunset, but most places will stay dry. Overnight lows will be in the mid-50s with a few areas of showers.
The cold front will cross the region Friday and may provide a stray shower or two, especially for our eastern counties (east of the Susquehanna River). The front is moisture staved, however, and many places locally won’t see much if any rain through Friday. The bulk of the rain looks to be centered more toward Philly and New York, well east of our area. Temperatures tomorrow will be cooler with plenty of cloud cover. Highs will struggle to reach 60°.
The weekend will start off chilly and breezy with highs only in the 50s on Saturday, though a quick recovery into the 60s is expected for Sunday and Monday. While guidance suggests a few more waves will move through early next week, rainfall chances are sketchy at best. Temperatures return to the mid-70s next week, which is significantly warmer than average for this time of the year.
