THIS EVENING: Skies Partially Clearing. Temperatures Falling To 40.
TONIGHT: Mostly Cloudy. Lo 35.
TUESDAY: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered PM Showers. Hi 47.
Skies will partially clear tonight which will allow temperatures to dip down into the 30s. The clouds will hang around tough on Tuesday though as a weak system develops along a front stalled to our south. This will develop some rain showers during the afternoon though rainfall amounts will be generally light at less than 0.1″.
After a rebound back into the 50s on Wednesday, attention turns to the late-week pattern change as colder air arrives by Friday. Clear skies and cold temperatures on Friday will set the stage for a potential weekend winter event.
A powerful storm will develop over the northern Plains and will move east, bringing snow into Central PA by lunch-time Saturday. The event is still almost 5 days away, but confidence in growing in precipitation starting out as all snow, potentially heavy snow before a gradual transition to a mix or briefly rain by Saturday evening. It is still too early to talk amounts but plan for travel disruptions Saturday afternoon and evening. The storm will gradually pull away Saturday night, with a chilly air mass settling in for Sunday.
Contrary to what we’ve seen so far this month, seasonable chill looks to stick around into much of next week, good news for winter lovers!
