COLD AND BREEZY
It’s a fairly cloudy and cold start across the Lower Susquehanna River Valley on this Friday morning. There are even a couple flurries out there, but the clouds are expected to break during the morning as high pressure works into the area. It’s still a bit breezy this afternoon with more sunshine. Highs are in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees, making for a seasonably cold day. Through the night, the clouds clear even, and this allows for a frigid night. Overnight low temperatures fall into the lower to middle 20s.
The weekend continues to look quiet, seasonable, and uneventful. Clouds are expected to build through the day Saturday after some morning sunshine. A system crossing well south of the area Saturday night into Sunday is responsible for the clouds. It’s a quick mover, so the clouds exit swiftly, allowing sunshine to return to the area on Sunday. Highs are in the middle to upper 30s Saturday, and in the upper 30s to lower 40s on Sunday.
ACTIVE PATTERN NEXT WEEK
The atmospheric pattern becomes more active next week, but it looks to bring rain chances to the area as opposed to snow chances. On Monday, a few showers will be possible for the area as a weak coastal system drifts nearby. A developing storm system for the middle of the week looks to bring a good soaking to the region, and will put a damper on holiday travels for many. Tuesday, some showers are possible, but the day should not be a washout. However, Wednesday, Christmas Eve, mild temperatures and a good soaking rain are possible. Temperatures will be running above seasonable averages in the upper 40s Tuesday to the lower 50s on Christmas Eve. Christmas Day looks quiet. Colder air plunges in behind Wednesday’s storm, bringing plenty of clouds and a few flurries. Highs are near 40 degrees.
Have a great weekend!
