A few showers or a storm tonight, better chance for rain Thursday

Forecast

Cooler and windy for Friday...

THIS EVENING: Mostly Cloudy, Stray Shower/Storm Late. Temperatures Dropping Into the 70s. Winds: W 5-15 mph.

OVERNIGHT: Scattered Showers. Lo 64. Winds: 5-15 mph.

THURSDAY: Scattered Showers & T-Storms. Hi 75. Winds: W 10-15 mph. Gusts 25 mph.

We made it into the upper 80s today, easily making it our warmest day of the year thus far! A very warm night is expected with overnight temperatures only falling into the 60s. A few showers or possibly even a storm will try to move in after sunset, but activity should remain spotty at best locally. Most organized showers and storms should stay to our north and west tonight, but a better chance for rain will come overnight and first thing Thursday morning.

Thursday looks like an activity day with off and on rain along with a few thunderstorms possible. Showers early in the day should give way to a lull around mid-day before more rain and some thunderstorms move in by evening. Severe weather is not expected but if we see any prior clearing to further destabilize the atmosphere, strong winds will be possible. With the numerous clouds and showers around, highs Thursday are only expected to top the mid-70s, which is still well above normal for this time of year.

Aside from a stray shower, Friday should be dry as the front pushes east of Pennsylvania. Cooler and drier air will build in its wake, along with gusty winds. Sustained winds of 20-30 mph and gusts over 40 mph can be expected. Saturday morning will start off cool and breezy with lows near 40, but by Sunday afternoon, temperatures will recover nicely back into the upper 70s. Showers and a few storms can be expected Monday and Tuesday next week as the next slow-moving front approaches. While this weekend will start off cool and breezy, much of the next seven days will be dominated by above normal temps!
