Today was likely our only dry day this week. Clouds were on the increase this afternoon but with plenty of dry air near the surface, no rain is expected through tonight. In fact, we may even see a few breaks in the clouds to start off Tuesday with temperatures starting off around 40 degrees.

Tuesday will feature thickening clouds but mainly dry weather for the daylight hours as we wait for a developing area of low pressure to move in from the south. Steady rain will eventually arrive after sunset, with the steadiest rain expected to fall overnight Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Most will see around a half inch of rain before the rain exits around noon-time.

The break in the rain will be short-lived as another front approaches the area Thursday, bringing steady rain as it stalls over us. An additional half inch to an inch of rain is expected before this exits Thursday night. An upper level low will hang out for Friday and Saturday, keeping the chance for at least a few 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 70s by next Tuesday.
