Our next system approaches slowly Wednesday resulting in clouds building through the day. While it’s dry most of the afternoon, a few late showers are possible. Highs are still mild in the lower and middle 70s.


Upper-level changes to the flow result in a couple of gray, gloomy, and wet days to end the week. A far cry from what we have experienced lately but welcomed.


We will watch for flooding as bands of rain rotate across the area from Wednesday night into the rest of the week.  Models are coming up with 1-2 inches of rainfall for parts of the Susquehanna Valley by Thursday night.  Isolated areas may pick up much more.


Flash flooding is a concern if heavy bands of rain set up over the area. If you live in a flood-prone area or low-lying area, keep alert to Fox43 and keep an eye out for rising water. Be prepared to protect yourself, family and belongings. This is a good time to download the Fox43 weather app to track the rain and stay alert with the latest warnings. The clouds and showers keep temperatures in the 60s both Thursday and Friday.


The system is very slow to lift out of the area. Clouds are pesky for Saturday and a small shower chance lingers. With little sunshine, temperatures struggle to reach 70, leaving plenty of areas stuck in the 60s. We should see some improvement Sunday with drier conditions and more sunshine, however, an isolated shower can’t be ruled out. High temperatures are milder, climbing to the lower and middle 70s.



More sunshine and drier conditions return for Monday and Tuesday. Morning lows are cool in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees to begin the week. Clouds give way to plenty of sunshine during the day, resulting in rebounding temperatures to the lower 70s. Ample sunshine and dry conditions continue Tuesday with highs in the 70s.
