MORE WARMTH: Warmer air continues to stream in on the tails of southwesterly winds today. Expect the clouds to outweigh the sunshine today. Temperatures will vary a bit again today, with the north and eastern areas seeing low to mid 40s and the south and western areas making it into the 50s. The latest trends keep us mainly dry today and this evening! Tonight, we drop to the low 40s and upper 30s with some fog in play.
WEEKEND WARMTH & WETNESS: The warm air continues to pump in over the weekend. Saturday, highs top out in the mid 50s. Sunday, we’re approaching record territory with highs in the middle 60s. The record in Harrisburg for Sunday is 64°-1949. A stationary front to our north wiggles south and a strong low pressure system grows stronger over Texas on Saturday. So, a few showers are possible especially in the afternoon and evening Saturday. Then, the second system over Texas marches into the northeast for Sunday. This will bring us some spotty rain showers for Sunday, especially into the afternoon and evening hours. The rain stops overnight, and so does the warm air! All this warmth as winter begins on Saturday at 12:11PM. Go figure!
HOLIDAY WEEK: Temperatures will fall through the day Monday as cold air fills in behind Sunday’s frontal system. Highs will be in the upper 40s by daybreak, falling into the mid 40s by afternoon under mostly cloudy skies. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day both look mostly sunny, dry, and seasonably cold. Highs will be in the middle 30s on Eve and upper 30s on Christmas. Enjoy!
Make it a superb Friday! Have a spectacular weekend. I’ll be in for Andrea Saturday night at 10PM. See you then!
