It was a rainy day across the area but it was much needed with most spots closing in on or exceeding 1″ as of 5p. Rain this morning turned showery this afternoon, but we’re likely to see one more batch of rain swing through later tonight with the system’s cold front. The bulk of the rain will be after 9p, and heaviest over areas north and west of Harrisburg. Stronger winds are possible, and even some brief rotation in any low topped thunderstorm can’t be ruled out. Most of the rain clears out before dawn Saturday.

Additional rain tonight will lead to a grand total of 1-2″ from Nicole. We see an abrupt wind shift from the north Saturday with winds between 10-20 mph. This will blow in colder air by Sunday and could trigger a few more showers late Saturday.

Colder air finally moves in Saturday night. Temperatures tumble Sunday with highs in the 40s! The breeze hangs around for much of the weekend too, adding to the chill. The chill hangs around by the way. Next week will feature highs in the 40s each day and a cold rain looks to set-up over the area by late Tuesday and early Wednesday. We look to stay chilly with highs in the 40s then as far as the eye can see, with overnight lows in the upper 20s and low 30s.
