A few showers did develop across the region this afternoon, but the vast majority of communities have been dry as high pressure continues to pump in warm, humid air into Western and Central PA. An area of low pressure will move past us to our north this afternoon and evening, and could help generate a few showers or thundershowers later this evening. The greatest risk will be for communities north of I-80, but locations to the south could hear a rumble of thunder this evening as well. Another mild night is ahead as temperatures will stay in the 60s during the early hours of Wednesday. A cold front associated with that area of low pressure will slowly move into Pennsylvania Wednesday, allowing for some showers and thunderstorms to develop, mainly for the evening. The warm, humid air will continue moving into the region Wednesday, and with a mix of sun and clouds temperatures will get close to 90 in a few spots east of I-99. The Laurel Highlands and Northern Tier will get into the low and mid 80s during Wednesday afternoon. Any thunderstorms that develop Wednesday afternoon and evening will have enough energy to last into the early hours of Thursday. The cold front will move to our south Thursday, but there will still be the chance for a few showers or thunderstorms going into the weekend. Temperatures will start falling as we go toward the weekend, with highs in the upper 70s or low 80s by Sunday.
