Dry and seasonable start for PA deer hunters, plan for rain and wind next week


For the first time in Pennsylvania Game Commission history, PA rifle deer season begins on Saturday, Nov. 28 this year, and thanks to a bill passed by Governor Wolf last year, hunters can continue their pursuit on Sunday, Nov. 29, allowing for two additional days before the traditional Monday opener.

Weather-wise, conditions will be suitable for many hunters who plan to sit all day in the woods. A weak cold front will bring a brief period of clouds Saturday morning with just a very low chance of a sprinkle. We begin the day near 40 degrees before sunshine arrives later Saturday morning to push our afternoon temperatures to a seasonable 52 degrees. Winds will average 5 to 10 mph out of the northwest.

Sunday begins clear, cold and frosty with temperatures around freezing. Sunny skies will last for much of the day before clouds develop Sunday evening ahead of a large system lifting out of the Gulf of Mexico.

Monday begins with a strong southerly breeze as rain develops throughout the morning and becomes steady, and possible heavy Monday afternoon. Tuesday and Wednesday will be colder and breezy with more showers possible on Tuesday. Much of next week will be chilly with daytime highs in the 40s.

Enjoy the weekend weather and stay safe this weekend!
