THIS EVENING: Spotty Showers Before 6pm. Temperatures in the low 60s. Winds: W 5-10 mph.
OVERNIGHT: Mostly Clear. Lo 45. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.
TUESDAY: Partly Cloudy, Stray PM Shower, Mild! Hi 70. Winds: SW 5-15 mph.
A weak trough swinging over the Appalachian mountains combined with a little daytime heating lead to pop-up showers this afternoon. These will continue to roll west to east before ending this evening. Skies should become mostly clear overnight which allow temperatures to dip into the mid 40s by first thing Tuesday morning.
Tuesday will be a pleasant day with highs rebounding into the low 70s. Another weak wave will cross during the second half of the day and may provide for a spotty afternoon shower or two but for most, the day will be dry and mild.
A potent cold front will then cross Pennsylvania on Wednesday, bringing gusty mid-day showers with it, but more noticeably, much cooler air to end next week. Winds pick up later Wednesday too, and will add to the chill! Highs on Thursday will only climb into the 50s and overnight lows will drop into the 30s for Friday morning. The winds will make it feel even colder, but at this point, frost is not a concern given the elevated winds. If temperatures trend colder we will need to be concerned for a freeze however. That’s something to watch for later in the week. Temperatures do moderate slightly by next weekend, but rain returns by late Saturday and looks to factor into Sunday’s forecast too. Stay tuned. We’ll keep you posted on all the little nuances in the forecast!
