A quiet but chilly start to the week ahead is expected – but a warm up is in store as we approach the Thanksgiving holiday.


A chilly start to the week with daytime high temperatures in the 40s.

FEELING MUCH COOLER:  Cooler air has invaded south-central Pennsylvania over the weekend. High pressure will nudge northeast on Monday providing ample sunshine, but under a cool west-northwest flow, we will be limited on afternoon high temperatures only in the low 40s. A weak cold front will arrive for Tuesday and continue to keep us on the chilly side… Early morning temperatures in the mid-to-upper 20s are expected with daytime highs in the mid 40s on Tuesday.


Temperatures warm by midweek with highs in the mid-to-upper 50s.

MILD INTO THANKSGIVING:  High pressure continues to build over the Northeastern US and keeps us dry and cool as we head into midweek. As the high shifts east, a return of warmer air from the south will bring moderating temperatures for Thanksgiving and again on Friday. Temperatures for Thanksgiving should make their way into the mid 50s. Early Bird shoppers will really enjoy a mild Black Friday starting with morning temperatures in the 40s, then afternoon highs reaching into the upper 50s!

A cold front is likely to bring the next chance for precipitation, in the form of rain showers for the start of the weekend.

Have a great week and a Happy Thanksgiving!
