An area of high pressure is moving into the region, but it is bringing a few clouds with it as we start Friday. Many locations are starting in the upper 40, but temperatures will rebound into the upper 60s and low 70s for the Laurel Highlands and Northern Tier this afternoon, in the low and mid 70s for the valleys. Winds will be light this evening and into Saturday. This combined with a clear sky will set up for another chilly night. Some locations in the Northern Tier will be close to 40° as we start Saturday. The high pressure will not settle over the region, rather continue moving off to our east as Saturday starts. As it moves east the warm and humid air will start moving in. Saturday is looking quite nice as sunshine will mix with clouds and high temperatures in the low and mid 70s. Clouds will increase late Saturday and into Sunday as a disturbance moves into the region. We’ll have showers and rumbles of thunder Sunday with highs in the mid 70s to around 80°. Sunday will mark the beginning of an unsettled pattern that will last through at least the first half of the week. Monday will have a mix of clouds and sunshine with a few showers or thundershowers developing and highs in the upper 70s and low 80s. Tuesday has a better chance for showers and thunderstorms with highs in the 70s to near 80°. The warm, humid air will stick around into the second half of the week, but with the mix of clouds and sunshine a few showers and thundershowers will develop each afternoon. Highs will climb into the mid 80s for the second half of the week, and overnight lows will stay in the 60s.
