EVENING: Sunny and Brisk, Winds NW 5-10mph, Temps In The 40s.
TONIGHT: Clear & Chilly. Lo 35. Winds: W 5-10 mph.
TUESDAY: Sunny, Mild, & Breezy. Hi 67. Winds: S 10-15 mph. Gusts to 25 mph.
After a gusty and colder Monday, we are finally starting to see the winds decrease this evening. Do not expect the winds to be completely calm with winds still between 5 to 10mph overnight. A sunny and chilly start Tuesday morning will lead to areas of frost and freeze which is still quite common this time of the year, but for anyone that got a head start to putting plants outdoors, it may be best to cover them or take them indoors.
Plan for lots of sun for Tuesday and we will be milder with highs in the upper 60s. A southerly breeze develops into the afternoon with wind speeds of 5-15mph. This southerly breeze is in advance of a storm that will bring periods of rain on Wednesday and Wednesday night. Rainfall amounts near a half inch will be common as the rain wraps up predawn Thursday morning. We also believe there will be some wet snow just before the storm exits. A slushy accumulation on the grass is possible in some areas by Thursday morning, especially north and west of Harrisburg. Thursday and Friday will be significantly colder and windy with highs only in the mid 40s! The cold air begins to exit for Easter weekend with Easter Sunday featuring lots of sunshine with an afternoon high near 70 degrees.
