Breaking News: Parents of James Holmes speak out, say he ‘is not a monster’ and should be spared from death penalty

Sunshine continues through end of the week

THURSDAY SUNSHINE: After a few days of clouds for many, high pressure builds in as a coastal system off the Carolinas pulls out to sea, leaving central Pennsylvania with plenty of sunshine to go around for all!  Highs today top out in the middle 40s, enjoy!  Tonight, we’re clear and cold with lows in the middle 20s.  A great night for viewing the Geminids meteor shower!  Grab the coats!

Sunshine continues Friday with highs near 50°.  Dry and cool weather will greet you to start your weekend Friday evening.

WEEKEND CHANGES:  A system develops in the Midwest on Saturday.  For us, we’ll see a few extra clouds slide in across the state ahead of the next system.  Highs will hit the upper 40s and we’re still dry.

Sunday, the system races toward Pennsylvania.  This will increase the clouds and throw some widely scattered showers into the state.  Highs only reach the middle 40s.

NEXT WEEK SHAKE-UP:  As our first system slides out of the commonwealth we’ll be left with some lingering sporadic showers on Monday with highs in the upper 40s.

A low pressure system will be developing over the Deep South.  This system will quickly move northeastward Tuesday into Wednesday.  We’ll see something out of this storm, but the tricky part is the track.  A western track keeps us mostly rain, while an eastern track brings us snow.  Anything in the middle could bring a mix or changeover.  Right now it’s too early for details, but just be aware of some sloppy weather for the middle part of next week.

Have a great Thursday!
