THIS EVENING: Increasing Clouds. Cool, Stray Shower or Sprinkle. Temperatures in the low to mid-50s. Winds SW 5-10 mph.
TONIGHT: Chills, Partly Cloudy. Lo 45. Winds SW 5 mph.
TUESDAY: Milder, Partly Cloudy. Hi 63. Lo 43.
Last night featured the coldest locations dropping to the mid-30s. After more cool air has moved into Central PA throughout the day, we expect a similar set-up tonight. First, areas of clouds from the west have to pass through. We expect conditions to stay mainly dry other than some passing sprinkles. Then as more clearing happens tonight temperatures should fall fast into the upper 30s and low 40s.
Tomorrow and Wednesday feature some periods of sunshine, with another weak disturbance arriving late Tuesday into Wednesday. Wednesday overall may feature the most amount of sunshine this week before the next active period of weather begins Thursday. We are monitoring yet another cold front and upper level low pressure system by the weekend.
We will slowly but surely warm to much more mild temperatures over the next few days, thanks to higher pressure across the U.S. where highs hit the upper 60s by Friday. Conditions stay relatively dry as well during the week. Change comes once again Saturday with another low pressure system, another cold front, and another rain chance. Highs drop back into the 50s Sunday as a result, but the coming rain chance might be just as big of a headline. Long range models have so far been fairly consistent concerning opportunities for widespread rain, and the question is more and more becoming when and how much rain rather than if we get rain. We’ll keep you updated over the coming days. Lows slowly warm into the mid to low 50s by this weekend, so the nights/mornings will not be as cold.
