A beautiful sky today with plenty of sunshine and decent temperatures in the mid 40s. High pressure will pull away towards northern New England allowing some clouds to stream in ahead of the next system to approach the area. Tuesday will be a wet day once we get past the morning hours.
It will be a bright sky with a full moon. Clear skies will allow temps to drop into the mid and upper 20s tomorrow morning. Make sure you grab the umbrella heading out.
RAIN, RAIN AND MORE RAIN
A major storm moving through the Southern Plains will track towards the Great Lakes bringing a mix to the higher elevations and rain elsewhere. A another storm will develop near the coast and head our way keeping the threat for rain and snow showers around through Wednesday morning. Even though it will be dry for the commute out, it will be a slow roll in the rain coming home. It is possible for some areas to pick up an inch of rain by the time the system pulls away. Highs tomorrow will be in the upper 30s to the northwest and higher elevations, while elsewhere they should get to the low 40s. There could be a brief mix in the beginning but right now doesn’t appear it will last long with the exception of areas north and west of Harrisburg.
NOT MUCH SUNSHINE FOR AWHILE
Rain will end early Wednesday leaving the area with mostly cloudy skies. Wednesday night as the second system moves away and an upper level low moves in, rain and snow showers will be possible overnight into Thursday. The low parks itself over the area. This means the clouds hang around and the threat for rain and or snow showers will also continue through the day. Temperatures look to be a tad above or near normal.
CHILL FOR THE WEEKEND
By the weekend, a deep trough sets up over the east plunging colder air as far south as Florida. Highs will be back in the mid to upper 30s under partly to mostly sunny skies.
