Drier, colder air returns

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Cold front approaches from the west and will cross the area later tonight.  Light showers and maybe a few pockets of heavier rain, will continue to fall into the evening and parts of the overnight.  Shifting winds will pick up out of the northwest shutting off the rain, however, it is possible with the winds crossing the Great Lakes, we could see a few snow flurries for areas north and west of Harrisburg.  Just a slight chance for snow flurries for the rest of the area.  Temperatures will still be fairly mild overnight as it will take awhile for the colder air to filter down into the Lower Susquehanna.  Lows expected in the upper 30s to low 40s.

Tomorrow, high pressure starts to build in decreasing the clouds in the morning and allowing for sunshine by the afternoon. Afternoon highs will top out in the mid 40s.

Much chillier tomorrow night as skies will be mostly clear with calm winds.  It will be a perfect setup for radiational cooling meaning lows will plummet into the mid and upper 20s.

We’ll get to enjoy several days of sunshine through Friday with highs running a bit above normal in the upper 40s to near 50 by Friday.

Next system arrives for Saturday and Sunday.  At this time, it looks to be an all rain event, as the low will track to our west through the Great Lakes.
