Clouds remain with us and temperatures will be cool falling out of the low 50s to the mid 40s. Winds remain light to calm. Bundle up the little ones before they head out to Treat-or-Treat because they will get chilly! There could be a few drops in our western counties late evening but most of the area will remain dry.

Holiday Forecast
Heading to area football games or our game of the week between Lancaster Catholic at Cocalico, you will need warm jackets. It is possible there could be a spotty shower by the end of the game in our western counties but most areas will be dry with temperatures dropping to the 40s.


One system dives to our south helping to produce a few showers in the area. Morning lows will drop to the upper 30s to low 40s. Winds will be light to start the day.

AM Metrovision
Heading through the day, a developing coastal storm will strengthen as low pressure crossing over the Appalachian Mountains weakens and transfers its energy. What that means for us, the chance for showers and colder air slipping in with winds coming in from the north but more importantly, the winds will be increasing through the evening and especially overnight into Sunday. This will make temperatures feel much colder. Winds will be sustained in the evening out of the north 15-25 mph with higher gusts. High temperatures will be held in the upper 40s to near 50.

Wind Speed
A strong upper level trough swings in Saturday ushering in colder air. Increasing northerly winds will make highs in the 40s to near 50 Saturday feel even colder. As high pressure builds in for Sunday, the pressure gradient remains tight as the coastal low slowly skirts away. The strongest winds will be overnight Saturday into Sunday. A much colder start in the morning is expected for Sunday with lows in the low 30s. Highs will only warm to the mid 40s despite more sunshine and dry conditions. Monday morning will be the coldest morning with calm and clear conditions. Some areas could start in the upper 20s to near 30 degrees. We could be dealing with frost which could put an end to the growing season for some areas. With plenty of sunshine thanks to high pressure, temperatures will moderate to the middle 50s. It will be milder and continued dry for Tuesday and most of Wednesday with high temperatures warming to the low 60s. Shower chances return late on Wednesday as our next system comes in. Showers may be possible into Thursday with temperatures cooling a bit. Another trough swings in for Friday cooling our temperatures to the low 50s.
