Clouds Continue Monday

Clouds streamed into our skies on Sunday ahead of a big batch of showers down to our south.

Even though the showers stay to our south for your Monday, we’ll still stay rather cloudy.

If you look at a satellite picture of Pennsylvania anytime on Monday, you’ll see a sharp cut-off between a cloudy southeast part of the state and clear northwest part of the state.

So, if you live in north and west of Harrisburg—particularly in Juniata and Mifflin counties—you have the best shot of seeing sun break through the clouds in the afternoon.

With similar weather to Sunday, we’ll copy Sunday’s high in the upper 60s.

The moisture to our south slides off the coast during your Monday afternoon, so the clouds will scoot away after sunset.

Because of the skies turning clear, we’ll drop to the mid 40s.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, enjoy all the sunshine. The sun will help lift the temperature to low to mid 70s both days.

On Thursday, the low 70s continue, and we’ll have partly sunny skies.

Though, the computer weather models we use to forecast show a small piece of energy just south of us. The one shows clouds developing over us while the other one shows some isolated showers. I want to see more updates from the models before I sign off on any of that. So, just expect partly sunny skies on Thursday and know that we’ll keep you updated.

Now, we do get clouds and showers on Friday. The showers take over Friday afternoon, so expect wet football frenzy weather. The clouds will hold the highs in the upper 60s.

After morning clouds and some showers on Saturday, sunshine breaks through the clouds in the afternoon as highs back down to the mid 60s.

Then, a more seasonal 60 follows on Sunday with partly sunny skies.

By the way, The National Weather Service (NWS) will share winter weather preparation information all this week.  After all, we’ve have pretty snowy weather in October before, so it’s time.

It’s worth taking a glance at some of their recommendations.

I learned some things.  For instance, did you know: If you are having trouble seeing due to weather conditions, pull over to the side of the road and stop your car until visibility improves. Turn off your lights and use your parking break when stopped so that another car won’t mistakenly follow your tail/brake lights and end up hitting you.  CREDIT: NWS.

When it comes to driving in winter weather, despite having an SUV, I try and never drive in it.  In fact, I will drive to the station early or the night before and sleep there just so I’m not out in Winter Weather.  I will also not leave the station until it’s over.  In my mind, it’s not worth the risk.
