Today wasn’t so bad as we even saw some clearing that took place early this afternoon! That is behind us now as the leading edge of rain is pushing into our southern counties. Light showers early this evening will eventually turn into a steady rain after sunset and last into the overnight hours as an area of low pressure passes to our south. Rain will taper to just showers Wednesday morning before wrapping up altogether by noon, but not before a half inch to an inch of rain falls area-wide.

The break in the rain Wednesday afternoon and evening will be short-lived as another front approaches the area Thursday, bringing steady rain as it stalls over Central PA. An additional 0.50-1.00″ of rain is expected before this exits Thursday night. The rain total this week should average between 1-2″. An upper-level low will hang out for Friday and Saturday, keeping the chance for at least a few light showers each day. Eventually, dry weather will return by Sunday but it will be cool this weekend with highs in the mid-50s and overnight lows in the upper 30s.

While the weather this week will be dreary at times, we don’t anticipate any severe weather — just typical early spring rain for Central PA. There is a light at the end of the tunnel with highs expected to rebound into the mid-60s next Monday and likely into the low to mid 70s by next Tuesday.
