Mid to high level clouds will increase this evening as a wave of energy dives south into PA. Showers will develop after sunset and move into the Mid-state prior to midnight, but plenty of dry air exists near the surface. This means any rain that does fall will be light, likely not even measurable. By early Tuesday morning, this activity will push south as drier air builds in. Overnight lows will only drop into the mid-40s.
A stationary front will be just west of us Tuesday afternoon but may be close enough to spark an evening shower or storm given an expected uptick in temperature and moisture. Locations west of Harrisburg are most likely to see a storm, and even there looks isolated at best. Additional light, widely scattered showers may develop Tuesday night into Wednesday morning as the front wiggles east. Most of Wednesday and Thursday look dry, though clouds will be on the increase Thursday.
Another stalled system looks to affect our region for the upcoming weekend. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will feature scattered, light showers as an upper-level low slowly trudges through the Central and Eastern U.S. Unfortunately, sunshine may be hard to come by next weekend. Much of the week will feature above-normal temperatures, with cooler air expected next weekend thanks to east flow and those aforementioned showers. April showers bring May flowers, right?
