TONIGHT: Partly Cloudy. Lo 63.

THURSDAY: Mostly Sunny. Hi 85.

FRIDAY: Mostly Sunny, Warmer. Hi 88.

Clouds are slowly clearing tonight after a round of showers and storms this afternoon. These storms rolled in from the northeast and did leave behind 0.5-1″ of rain for northern York and southwestern Franklin Counties. Drier air now has wrapped up the shower chances. There is a geomagnetic storm tonight that could allow some areas of PA to see the Northern Lights. This is extremely rare, and not likely for this area- however if you are up late or early tonight/Thursday morning perhaps look to the sky.

Thursday looks terrific with a comfy start, lots of sun, and seasonable high temperatures in the afternoon.

There are signs of a Bermuda high returning over the weekend with more moisture being drawn northward from the Gulf. That could lead to a return of more humid conditions along with at least spotty shower and t-storm chances. Today’s guidance suggests some light showers for Saturday and a pop-up storm for Sunday. Neither day will be a washout. The pattern does look to turn more unsettled and wet by early next week with some thunderstorms on Monday and more showers by Tuesday. Just how much rain we can squeeze out across the region remains to be seen. It’s been hard to promise any region-wide soaking rain events over the last several weeks. None of these systems look to deliver that either, so it could be more feast or famine with rainfall heading into next week. Again, we’ll follow the trends and keep you posted.
