After tying a record high yesterday, today was a step in the right direction but still well above normal for our bigger cities. Temperatures topped out in the low to mid 50s for most but with cooler air on our doorsteps. We’ll dip down near freezing overnight under partly cloudy skies and it will stay breezy as northwest winds gust over 20 mph at times.
It will be more seasonable this weekend with highs in the 40s and lows around 30. We’ll see plenty of sunshine Saturday with more clouds moving in Sunday. A weak coastal low will stay offshore for Saturday, but a secondary low will develop and could hug the Mid-Atlantic by late Sunday. Recent model guidance shows most of this rain stays to our south, however, a few showers could reach our southern tier counties of Adams, York, and Lancaster by Sunday evening. If that happens, just a few showers would be possible into the overnight hours. Not a huge deal.
A look ahead to next week shows more unseasonable warmth with highs in the 50s for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, with 60s expected Thursday. A front will bring us some showers next Thursday afternoon followed by a brief shot of colder air next weekend. Overall though, we look to stay well warmer than average over the next two weeks.
