TAPERING AND COOLING: Early morning rain showers will shut off around daybreak as fog, mist, and clouds linger early. We start out very mild with temperatures holding or rising just a bit to the upper 40s and near 50° in spots. However, colder air slides into the state on some stiff northwesterly winds later in the day. We expect temps to begin to fall through the afternoon under mainly cloudy skies. On a positive note, we’ll scour out the weekend fog. Expect temps to be in the middle 40s by late afternoon and low 40s this evening. A few showers may slide in after dark, but won’t last long. A flake or two can mix in as well. Tonight, we’re cloudy with lows in the middle to low 30s.
QUICK SHOT: Another system will graze us to our south late Tuesday into Wednesday. So, we’ll start Tuesday on a cold note and end with highs only reaching the low 40s under mainly cloudy skies. Then, some moisture glides in from the south in the evening hours. We’ll start with some rain showers. As temps fall in the overnight, we’ll mix in or turn to snow. This precip ends during the late morning on Wednesday as some rain. Limited accumulation is anticipated at this point due to the changeover. We’ll need to monitor this forecast closely.
TRANQUILITY RETURNS: Once the precip ends Wednesday, we’re looking at the edge of some cold air sliding into PA for the remainder of the week. Skies should clear out a bit as colder air dives into the commonwealth. We only hit the upper 30s Thursday, and the mid 30s Friday. The core of the coldest air will stay to our north though. By the weekend, we begin to see the cold air retreat a bit, and temps rise back into the low 40s.
Here’s to a marvelous Monday!
