TONIGHT: Light rain, mainly south and east of Harrisburg. Low 40.
SATURDAY: Becoming blustery and colder. Northwest winds 10-20mph, high 45.
SUNDAY: Breezy and colder. High 41, northwest winds 5-10mph.
A developing Nor’Easter will bring light showers to parts of the Midstate this evening and tonight. While the majority of the rain stays to our east and off the coast, some of us closer to the coast can expect light rain through tonight, especially Lebanon, York and Lancaster counties. Locations west of Harrisburg can still expect some light showers tonight, but limited amounts are expected.
Winds increase from the northwest later tonight with wind speeds between 10-20 mph Saturday morning, increasing to 15-25 mph by tomorrow afternoon with gusts up to 30 mph. Highs will only reach 45 degrees Saturday afternoon with colder conditions expected for Sunday. Fortunately, we do not expect any rain over the weekend, so just plan for a colder weekend on tap and be mindful of the gusty winds on Saturday.
A look ahead to next week shows cold air through Wednesday with milder air returning later next week. Overall, a dry stretch on tap.
