BREEZY & WARM WITH A FEW SHOWERS: Shower chances are expected Friday as the next cold front crosses through Central PA, but quite the warm day is expected before a chill returns for the weekend. It’s still quite mild to start, with morning temperatures in the 50s to lower 60s. Isolated showers are possible, especially west of Harrisburg. As the cold front slowly drifts east through the day, showers linger through much of Friday. Even a few rumbles of thunder are possible later during the afternoon. This does not stop temperatures from rising even higher. Expect readings in the middle to upper 60s! Some spots could even tough 70 degrees! It’s still quite breezy too, with wind gusts as high as 20 to 25 miles per hour! Conditions dry out through the evening fast, and temperatures take a huge tumble the rest of the night. They turn chilly again, with readings falling into the upper 30s to lower 40s.
WEEKEND OUTLOOK: The weekend turns chillier, but the luck of the Irish should keep us dry for St. Patrick’s Day festivities! Saturday is breezy with plenty of sunshine.
