TONIGHT: An overall quiet and dry day thanks to broad high-pressure overhead. Pockets of mid/upper level clouds were present in the daytime hours with a gradual clearing cloud deck into the afternoon hours. Hazy and smoky conditions have returned to our region, this will mean a fiery sunset this evening and sunrise tomorrow morning! Make sure you send over any sort of weather of outdoors picture to our email to be featured during our Friday night photo segment. Temperatures this morning were down in the lower 50s with afternoon highs returning into the middle 70s. The wind had an easterly component to it, blowing around 5-10 mph. Tonight, we trend mainly clear with overnight lows dipping into the lower 50s. Winds will blow from the northeast around 5 mph. Skies will be clear to start with a few passing clouds into tomorrow afternoon.
WEDNESDAY: A mix of sun and clouds with temperatures ranging in the mid to low 70s. A seasonably cool air-mass arrives into our region, so if you are not one who likes the heat get outdoors and soak it up! Hazy/smoky sky conditions will linger overhead thanks to northerly winds in the upper levels of the atmosphere. Another fiery sunrise is expected for the area Wednesday morning. A few showers are possible across Central/Western PA, but our region will remain dry. Overnight lows into Thursday morning will dip into the mid to upper 40s, which is slightly cooler than average.
THURSDAY: Sun and clouds mix in with temperatures maxing out in the lower 70s to upper 60s. Another great day to be outdoors and cut the grass/weed the yard under not so warm weather. Winds will be noticeable and blow from the northwest around 10-15 mph. It will not be as breezy, but more so noticeable.
FRIDAY: Partly cloudy skies with temperatures maxing out in the middle 70s. It will be closer to a seasonal day compared to the last few days. Our upper air pattern will start to break apart into the weekend.
SATURDAY: A few more clouds in the skies as we head into the weekend. Temperatures will return back towards the 80-degree mark.
SUNDAY: A cold front is forecast to swing through our region with scattered showers embedded within the front. Temperatures will max out in the upper 70s. This could be our best chance to end the prolonged stretch of no rainfall measured. Shower activity is likely for the afternoon/evening hours.
MONDAY: Mostly cloudy skies with a few spotty showers possible, mainly in the morning hours. Temperatures will range in the middle 70s for daytime highs.
