TONIGHT: Mostly Clear, Chilly and Calm. Lo 44.
THURSDAY: AM Sun, PM Clouds & Cooler. Hi 64.
FRIDAY: AM Scattered Showers, PM Heavier Periods of Rain and Windy. Hi 57.
Sinking air and high pressure on the backside of the Nor’easter led to a lot of beautiful sunshine across the Midstate today. High temperatures even creeped close to 70°! Temperatures will gradually fall this evening and the winds should also weaken. This means temperatures drop off more overnight to the low and mid-40s.
Thursday will be dry but with increasing clouds as our next storm tracks through the southern states. Highs tomorrow will also be in the 60s with less of a breeze.
As clouds increase Thursday night, showers will develop by early Friday morning. While showers will be off and on for the first part of Friday, a steady and heavy rain looks to develop by Friday afternoon and continue through most of Friday night. Highs will only be in the 50s. It will turn windy later Friday too making for a dark and stormy start to Halloween weekend. While the heavy rain should end by Saturday, scattered showers will linger through much of the day. The system could even linger into Sunday morning with a few light showers too. Most of the measurable rain will come Friday night, however, with 1-2″ of rain possible through the entire event. By Sunday, we start to slowly clear out, but it will be breezy and cooler. We’ll maintain dry weather early next week with highs in the low 60s and lows in the 40s. As the seasons change, this is the time of year we typically see big fronts and gusty weather. This week is living up to the calendar for sure. Enjoy the sunshine while we have it!
