A bit of a break

SHORT BREAK:  The break between the really wet days will tally up at two, counting Tuesday and Wednesday.  However, there still exists some chance for a bit or rain on both days.  Today, expect a warm day with a chance for some midday showers as some energy aloft passes.  We’re partly cloudy and breezy with highs in the upper 70s to near 80°.  Wednesday, we start and remain dry for a good chunk of the day.  Clouds will thicken and the chance for rain arrives late in the day as our next system extends its reach eastward to PA.  We’ll be warm with temperatures in the middle 80s.

Rain Chances

A few showers and a rumble are possible during the midday hours today.

THURSDAY STORMS:  A rapidly moving and strengthening storm system will race from the Midwest on Wednesday night to the Atlantic by Thursday night.  This low will bring clouds, rain, and thunderstorms to Pennsylvania for the day.  The low will pass over us Thursday and there’s enough energy with it that we may have to deal with a threat for some strong to severe storms during the day.  We’ll hammer out the details as we get closer to it.  We’re in the middle 70s for highs.


The track and strength of the low will determine where the greatest risk for severe weather will be on Thursday. As of now, the SPC has our area clipped with a slight risk for severe storms.

HIGH LIFE:  High pressure builds in beginning Friday, and it will stick around for a chunk of the weekend.  Friday, we’ll be breezy and mild with highs in the mid to upper 70s as sun returns to the picture.  Saturday will be a seasonably warm day with highs near 80° with plenty of sun.  Sunday looks to cloud up a bit more for Father’s Day.  For now, we’re looking at highs near 80°.  The models are now hinting at a faster system, which could bring the chance for rain to the picture later in the day.  We’ll need to watch.  That rain chance may linger into Monday with highs in the low 80s.

Have a terrific Tuesday!
