FREEZE WARNING for the entire area from 2am to 9am Saturday morning. Be sure to protect tender vegetation and crops or they could be damaged. Also, bring in any sensitive plants.
It will remain breezy through the evening but the winds are expected to die down overnight. Skies are mostly clear as high pressure builds overhead. The combination of the clear skies and winds easing up will lead to a very cold night, perhaps even record breaking. Lows expected in the upper 20s to near 32. The record at the Harrisburg International Airport is 30 set in 1956.
We may have a few clouds in the early morning hours then plenty of sunshine to start the day but the clouds start to increase later in the afternoon and evening. Isolated showers in the evening will be possible as a low pressure system slides by to the south. It may produce a few showers overnight into early Sunday, especially in southern counties. Highs will be a few degrees warmer in the upper 50s but still well below average. Overnight, a few showers may be possible; lows will be milder with the clouds near 40.
Sunday will start out with clouds and perhaps a lingering shower or two. Skies are expected to brighten a bit heading through the day. They will not totally clear as the upper low that was in control of our weather the past couple of days starts to move west over head bringing a return of the clouds and cooler air especially into Monday. Highs will be cool in the upper 50s to near 60. Monday we remain in the upper 50s with a few drops possible. Rain chances look slim but an isolated shower will be possible. Tuesday, the low starts to lift out again allowing for temperatures to warm up a bit more into the low 60s. Still could see an isolated drop or two but most of the day will remain dry. Best day right now of the week looks to be Wednesday as ridge builds in briefly and brings more seasonal temperatures in the mid 60s under partly cloudy skies. Thursday our next system moves in with showers then we are cooler Friday as another trough settles in briefly.
