Drier and cooler weekend ahead
OVERVIEW: The front has pushed to our east and we continue to dry out. Cooler air is ushering in as we head through the evening and overnight. A slow moving upper trough will drift our way then to the east over the next several days. At that time, we’ll enjoy a brief return to warmer air but with the milder air will come unsettled weather.
CREEKS AND STREAMS: We continue to see rises along the creeks and streams, specifically, Sherman Creek in Shermans Dale and Yellow Breeches in Camp Hill, both of which are above flood stage. They should crest this evening before falling overnight. Expect moderate flooding to continue. Areal FLOOD WARNING continues until the water levels fall below flood stage.
EVENING FORECAST: Skies try to brighten up but the clouds hold strong with only peaks of sunshine. Temps will fall from the low 60s to the middle 50s around 10pm.
OVERNIGHT: Disturbance rotating in from the Midwest may trigger an isolated shower after midnight tonight but it will encounter much drier air as our dewpoints have come way down. Lows will be much cooler in the low to upper 40s.
WEEKEND OUTLOOK: Upper level trough and energy keeps the clouds around mixing with sunshine. Temperatures will be noticeably cooler in the mid to upper 60s both days. Some upper level energy swinging in may trigger an isolated shower either day but most of the area remains rain free.
NEXT WEEK: Starting cool and still a tad below normal but with more sunshine on Monday. We get back to the low 70s by Tuesday with increasing clouds. With temperatures warming, we start to see the rain threat go up especially late Wednesday into Thursday as the next frontal systems slide in.
Have a good weekend!!!
