A pleasant Monday ahead before much colder air follows

Forecast

Overnight lows will plunge into the 30s later this week...

OVERNIGHT: A Few Clouds. Low 48. Winds NW 5-10 mph.

MONDAY: Mostly Sunny, Breezy. Hi 58. Winds: NW 10-15 mph, Gusts up to 20 mph.

TUESDAY: AM Clouds, Light Rain, PM Clearing & Cool. Hi 52. Winds: W 5-10 mph.

A weak front will move through overnight, bringing just a few clouds and dropping temperatures into the mid to upper 40s by morning. Monday will be a mostly sunny but breezy day with west winds gusting as high as 20 mph. If you’re a fan of warmer weather, enjoy Monday because a big change is in store later this week.

We’ll have another front slide through early Tuesday, bringing clouds and a few showers with it during the morning. Skies will begin to clear during the afternoon, but temperatures will only recover into the mid-50s. Overnight lows by Wednesday morning will drop well down into the 30s, and lows will stay in that range for the rest of the week. As cold air moves over the warmer lake waters, there will be some lake-effect snow showers Wednesday and Thursday, mainly over western Pennsylvania. It’s not out of the question though that a few flakes make it into the mountains, although most of the week is looking dry for the Mid-state.

Earlier, we were watching a storm that would attempt to organize along the east coast toward next Friday/Saturday, but the push of cool, dry air from Canada should be enough to keep this storm suppressed south of our area. So aside from an increase in clouds late-Thursday and Friday, the weather will cooperate although it will stay chilly right through next weekend with highs only in the low to mid 50s. Get ready for a new month…and a new weather pattern!
