We are now seeing clouds from Nicole in the Midstate this evening. A mild and dry evening continues into tonight with temperatures holding in the 50s overnight.

The moisture from Nicole arrives near daybreak Friday morning. Periods of rain will continue throughout Friday morning and winds steadily increase from the south. By the afternoon, we expect southerly winds between 10-20mph with additional periods of rain. There is a chance for some storms Friday afternoon and evening, some of which may produce gusty winds. Our weather team will be watching for any storm development.

Additional rain Friday evening and Friday night will lead to a grand total of 1 to 2 inches of rain from Nicole. The rain exits before daybreak Saturday morning. We see an abrupt wind shift from the north Saturday morning with winds between 10-20mph.

Most, if not all of the daylight hours on Saturday will be dry, but we do expect a period of showers after sunset Saturday evening. Colder air follows for Sunday with highs only in the 40s.
