TONIGHT: Increasing Clouds, Patchy Drizzle. Lo 28.
FRIDAY: AM Drizzle, PM Showers, Chilly. Hi 38.
SATURDAY: Scattered Showers. Rain Heavy at Times. Hi 48.
Temperatures have fallen to the middle and upper 20s for some locations, especially the lower valleys. This means our Friday starts cold, however with a little round of drizzle for Friday morning we could see some freezing drizzle. We do not expect widespread problems, but just more isolated ice concerns on less traveled roadways.
As the day continues, our Friday will see rising temperatures with readings in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees. Any threat of patchy ice will be ending by mid-morning. Scattered showers will then continue off and on through the afternoon/evening.
This weekend will kick off another stormy pattern for Central PA. After some drizzle early Friday, scattered showers will make for a not so pleasant afternoon. Highs tomorrow will be chilly and raw, in the upper 30s. Rain will continue to take over Friday night and through much of Saturday. Even Sunday doesn’t look all that nice. Showers and drizzle could linger into Sunday morning before some clearing may take place late in the day. Highs Saturday and Sunday will be in the 40s.
Early next week another storm sets its sights on our region. A wintry mix of snow and sleet could begin as early as Monday afternoon before transitioning over to plain rain by Monday night and most of Tuesday. It looks like another close call with wintry weather that will turn out to be mostly a chilly rain. Of course, we will keep you posted on all of this as we certainly understand it’s a busy time of year. Stay tuned! And enjoy that sunshine today!
