Weather GraphicA weak disturbance is throwing some added clouds our way early this Wednesday morning.  The moisture associated with this disturbance doesn’t look to hold together long enough to make it into our neck of the woods.  Overall we will begin with some added clouds especially in our western suburbs but as high pressure builds in overhead skies will turn mostly sunny with highs around 50 degrees.

Thursday clouds will be on the increase ahead of an area of low pressure and its associated cold front.  Rain and showers will develop Thursday afternoon and continue overnight.  The rain may end as a brief period of snow as temperatures fall toward the freezing mark.

Northwesterly winds will kick in behind this system producing blustery winds and colder temperatures Friday into the weekend.  Additionally, Lake Effect snow showers/flurries will develop and a couple of them could make the trip into Central PA at times Friday and Saturday.

Long range weather guidance wants to bring yet another system our way just in time for Christmas.
