WARMER & UNSETTLED END TO THE WEEK: A warm front has cleared the region to the north, setting Central PA up for a milder and unsettled Friday as a cold front approaches from the west. Temperatures haven’t dropped much through the night, with haze and some light showers likely. Temperatures begin in the middle 50s to lower 60s. As the cold front approaches during the afternoon, it brings a return to showers and thunderstorm chances. It should allow some warming to take place too. Temperatures reach the middle to upper 70s depending on the timing of shower or thunderstorm activity that starts to pop up during the afternoon. Some thunderstorms could produce some stronger wind gusts, but the severe weather threat is low overall. Damaging winds and areas of flooding are the primary concerns with any strong to severe storms that manage to develop. Clouds clear through the night, and temperatures cool behind the front. Lows dip into the upper 40s to middle 50s. Humidity levels lower too.
