The remnants of Zeta will bring a soaking rain to the area starting tomorrow morning (just after Daybreak) and lasting through Thursday night. The rain will be quite steady throughout Thursday before becoming showery Thursday night into Friday morning. Total rainfall projections average between 1-2″, with locally higher amounts possible. The heaviest rain will fall tomorrow afternoon. Much of this rain tapers off Friday morning (around 9am will be the shutoff for most locations), with a chilly northwest breeze developing for the remainder of the day.
The weekend starts off quite chilly (low 30s Saturday morning!), but offers lots of sunshine Saturday and clear skies for any Halloween plans Saturday night.
Clouds gradually increase Sunday and showers arrive later in the afternoon. This front will bring another round of colder air for the start of next week. Monday and Tuesday will be seasonably chilly with highs near 50 and lows in the 30s. Much of next week will be dry and we’ll return to unseasonably warm conditions toward the end of next week.
Trick-Or-Treat Forecast: Thursday night will be the worst night for Trick-Or-Treating. Expect steady rain and chilly temperatures. It will be a dark and stormy night across Central PA with temperatures in the low 50s. Friday night looks pleasant but it will be chilly and breezy. Temperatures Friday evening will be around 40°. Saturday, actual Halloween, may be the best night for Tricks and Treats. Expect clear skies, calm winds, and temperatures again around 40°. Enjoy!
