TUESDAY: Mix of Clouds and Sun, Showers North & West. Hi 74. Winds: Light
Clouds have thickened across the region throughout the day, but rain will be hard to come by. This evening will stay mild as temperatures slowly drop into the 50s, with some areas remaining there as more clouds come through. The coldest spots will hit the middle 40s, which will be milder than last night when temperatures dropped below freezing for the coldest valleys! Some valley fog is possible through tomorrow morning as moisture comes back into the region.
Monday will feature a lot of clouds, but the bulk of the rain should by-pass us to the north and northwest. A few showers are possible over the ridges and valleys including Mifflin, Juniata, and Perry Counties. Even that rain should remain light. Highs for Monday will get closer to 70°, especially if some afternoon sun has broken through the clouds.
A very mild weather pattern develops for Tuesday through Friday as weak storm systems continue to roll by to the northwest of the Midstate. Temperatures will climb to the middle and upper 70s, with the possibility of hitting 80° Wednesday and Thursday. A few showers should arrive by late Friday and into Saturday with the next strong front to come through. Again we do not expect any rain to be heavy. Cooler weather then follows this front with high temperatures dropping to the 60s by next Sunday.
