Drier and milder start to the week with much lower rain chances

Clouds are slow to break during the afternoon. Expect temperatures in the lower to middle 70s for most spots once the clouds clear.

 

 

Monday is a bit on the mild side for this time of year.

MUCH DRIER START TO THE WEEK:  Central PA gets a needed break from rain after a good soaking over the weekend. The day starts with plenty of clouds and a few hazy spots, but overall no weather troubles. It’s a bit humid, with temperatures in the lower to middle 50s. The clouds start to break during the afternoon, and by the latter portion of the day, there’s plenty of sunshine. Winds are light, with temperatures reaching the lower to middle 70s throughout the area. Skies are partly to mostly clear through the night. Expect lows in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Tuesday is even warmer ahead of a weak cold front. Most of the day is dry under partly cloudy skies. However, a couple late day and evening showers or thunderstorms cannot be ruled out. Most should stay dry, with the best chance along the northern half of the region. Temperatures reach the middle 70s to near 80 degrees.

 

 

Rain chances start to increase again for the middle to the end of the week.

TURNING CLOUDIER & MORE UNSETTLED:  The front stalls nearby across the region, and an east flow starts to build through the middle of the week. It’s enough to bring plenty of clouds for Wednesday, and perhaps a few showers. Temperatures are much cooler, but close to seasonal averages for this time of year. Expect highs in the middle to upper 60s. Thursday looks fairly cloudy with a better chance for a few showers. Temperatures are in the lower to middle 60s. Another cold front approaches for Friday, and this brings a return to more widespread showers and thunderstorms. It should allow some warming to take place too. Temperatures reach the lower to middle 70s depending on the timing of the next cold front.

 

 

WEEKEND OUTLOOK:  The weekend looks 50/50 at this point. Saturday could bring a few clouds to start, but there should be plenty of sunshine for the afternoon. Temperatures are in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Sunday turns more unsettled. Expect plenty of clouds and the chance for showers. Temperatures turn cooler, with readings in the lower to middle 60s.
