ANOTHER COLD NIGHT
The chill continues! Temperatures will dip again to the upper teens and low 20s despite clouds around. Average is 25 degrees and we’ll be running a bit below the next couple of mornings.
QUIET, DRY STRETCH
Thursday will start out with some clouds and perhaps light snow north and west of Harrisburg, and a few flurries elsewhere, as a quick moving clipper system skirts by. We’ll see more sunshine heading into the afternoon. Highs will be milder in the upper 30s. The fast front will knock temps back down for Friday. Plenty of sunshine Friday with high pressure in control but temperatures only warm to the mid and upper 30s. A nice start to the weekend with sunshine, highs in the mid 40s and high pressure in control of our weather before the next system arrives.
A developing southern stream system rides up the coast. The westward extent is still in question but the temperature profile supports rain showers. It does turn colder Sunday night into Monday as the next cold front slides in producing flurries and much colder air as we round out 2013! Temperatures will get to the low 40s Sunday but drop quite a bit for the start of the week. Brisk winds Monday will make highs in the low 30s feel more like the 20s.
COLD END TO 2013
New Year’s Eve will be even colder. After morning lows in the teens, highs will warm to the upper 20s but it will be dry for bringing in 2014! During the evening as you head out to bring in the new year, be sure to bundle up because temperatures will drop from the upper 20s to the low 20s heading towards midnight.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
2014 could arrive with some light snow. It looks like a clipper type system New Year’s Day may bring a few light snow showers and certainly keep temperatures on the cold side with highs only in the mid 30s.
