Breezy and sunny Tuesday, eyeing late day Halloween showers

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Winds calm in the afternoon with highs just shy of 60-degrees.

BREEZY BUT QUIET: Temperatures start in the chilly 30s and low-40s area-wide. Clear skies allowed temperatures to drop more overnight with patchy frost possible. However, clearer skies will allow more sunshine and warmer afternoon temperatures. Highs reach the upper-50s to right at the 60-degree mark. Winds, while still breezy at times, will be significantly better than yesterday with gusts up to 15MPH.

A warmer Halloween evening ahead with low rain chances in our northwest counties.

HEADING TO HALLOWEEN: A switch to southwesterly winds gives us a big temperature kick for Halloween and Thursday. While morning lows start in the low-40s, we’ll get up to the upper-60s with mostly sunny skies on Halloween. Currently, a late rain chance still lies in the forecast. The best chance will be in our northwestern counties, areas including Lewistown, Mifflintown, Juniata, Newport and as far southeast as Duncannon. Take the umbrella out trick-or-treating just in case. The warm air continues for Thursday as rain chances take over with a passing cold front in the evening. Highs still make it well-above average in the low-70s area-wide.

Temperatures cool this weekend, but the majority of the Weather Smart Forecast is much warmer than average.

COOLER WEEKEND:  The front lingers over the area, but dries out. Friday still looks warmer than average, in the mid-60s. Lingering showers will be the trend through Saturday as temperatures dip back into the 50s. A drier, cooler and sunnier Sunday ends the weekend.

Have a great day!
