Tracking wind, showers, and a temperature tug of war

WINDY WEATHER: We’ve have some impressive wind gusts pop up in spots across Central Pennsylvania.  Harrisburg had peak wind gusts in the mid 50s last night and early this morning.  Unless it’s from a thunderstorm or tornado, we really don’t see wind gusts in the 50s in Central PA.  The windy weather will finally wind down a few hours after sunset.  More breezes return tomorrow afternoon, but we’ll keep those breezes at 10-20 mph.  The windy weather takes most of Tuesday off, but it returns for Wednesday through Friday.

Future Wind Speeds

Winds diminish shortly after sunset.

WET WEATHER:  Toward daybreak on Monday, a few showers arrive.  We’ll keep the clouds all day on Monday, and we’ll have a few showers through the afternoon.  Monday night, the skies clear.  Enjoy lots of sunshine on Tuesday.  On Wednesday, we start out with sun, but clouds increase and thicken all afternoon.  Look for cloudy skies and rainy weather on Thursday.  With luck, we’ll grab over a half of an inch of rain.  We could use a good soaker, because March’s rainfall tally ended up 2 inches below average.  We’ll keep the skies cloudy on Friday, but sunshine returns for next weekend.

Future clouds and radar

Showers sail over Central PA on Monday.

TEMPERATURE TUG OF WAR:  We had a high of 61 yesterday.  Today, we get stuck in the mid 40s.  Tomorrow, we get the mid 50s.  The showers end with a cold front tomorrow, so we get mid 40s back on Tuesday.  Then, warmer weather comes up from the south to give us mid to upper 50s for Wednesday and Thursday.  The rainy weather on Thursday also wraps up with a cold front, so we fall to the 40s for Friday and Saturday.

7-Day Forecast

Temperatures swing back and forth this week. For scale, we have average highs in the upper 50s these days.
