Dry Wednesday, milder Thanksgiving with showers after sunset


Turning much colder and blustery for the holiday weekend...

THIS EVENING: Mostly Clear, Chilly. Temperatures Dropping Into the 30s. Winds: W 5-10 mph.

OVERNIGHT: Mostly Clear, Cold. Lo 27. Winds: Light.

WEDNESDAY: Sunny & Chilly. Hi 46. Winds: Light.

Today was our coldest day of the season thus far with temperatures that struggled to get into the low 40s. There were even a few flurries around this afternoon! Clouds should scour tonight which will allow temperatures to again drop into the 20s by morning with light winds.

Temperatures bounce back a bit for Wednesday under sunny skies. Highs tomorrow will make it into the mid and upper 40s locally. Overall, it looks to be a great travel day not only for Central PA but much of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. The quiet weather will stick around for Thanksgiving with just an increase in clouds during the day. Thursday will be our mildest day of the week with highs in the low to mid-50s. Our next cold front will approach during the evening however which means some showers will arrive after sunset, albeit on the light side.

By early Friday morning, showers will wrap up and much colder air will rush into the state. Winds will pick up too with gusts over at 30 mph at times during the afternoon. It’s not out of the question that we see a few flakes fly Friday as cold air blows blows in some lake-effect snow showers from Lake Erie. Otherwise, chilly air will dominate the weekend with highs only in the low 40s and overnight lows in the upper 20s. A weak clipper system may bring us some light flurries or snow showers Sunday, but the strength and exact placement of that system are yet to be determined. Overall, no sign of any consistently mild air as far as the eye can see!
