More cold nights ahead this week, periods of sun each day

Forecast

Staying cool and dry through the weekend...

TONIGHT: Mostly Clear & Cold. Lo 30.

THURSDAY: AM Sun, PM Clouds. Hi 50.

FRIDAY: Mostly Sunny. Hi 50.

Plenty of sunshine was around today, but colder air won out the day. High temperatures stayed in the upper 40s to low 50s and the stronger wind made for one of the coldest days so far this fall. Tonight will be even colder as winds die down and skies stay clear. Most backyards will have temperatures fall to the 20s tomorrow morning.

The middle and end of the week will feature plenty of morning chill with daily morning temperatures in the low to mid-30s. Daytime highs will only be around 50° which is a good 7-9 degrees below average. Mainly dry weather is expected though as any lake effect rain/snow showers stay just to our northwest. It’s not out of the question that a few flakes make it to the mountains, but our first real snow isn’t in the cards just yet.

Looking ahead to the weekend we should be on the outside of any rain chances. High pressure arriving from the north will help steer the storm track away from the interior Mid-Atlantic. The best chances for rain will be in far eastern PA to the coastline on Sunday. Once the storm pulls away to the western Atlantic Ocean we can expect seasonable to even milder than average conditions to build into PA for early next week through at least next Thursday.
