A low deck of clouds persisted over parts of the viewing area today, leading to a large temperature range. Some areas were stuck in the 60s with other locations such as Franklin and Adams counties peaking in the mid 80s!
A front producing showers in storms across western Pennsylvania this evening will move east overnight. This line will weaken as it approaches, but I still believe some showers will reach the Midstate overnight.
Thursday stays warm and generally cloudy as the front slowly moves across the state. A passing shower or stray evening storm could occur, with most of the day featuring dry conditions.
Easter weekend is dry and will start cool on Friday and Saturday. Easter Sunday will see lots of sunshine with seasonable highs in the 60s.
Long range model guidance now shows more unseasonable warmth for mid April and an extended stretch of dry conditions. Expect more 70s and 80s next week.
