A front which has stalled to our south won’t move much over the next couple days. Clouds will mix with sunshine today, with more sun along I-80 than along the turnpike. A few showers will develop and move through, but these will mainly impact communities in the Laurel Highlands and southern valleys. High temperatures will be in the low 70s in the Laurel Highlands, but reach the mid and upper 70s in the Northern Tier and across the valleys. Through the evening and overnight hours a few stray showers will move through and some areas of fog will develop as temperatures drop into the upper 50s. Tuesday will start with a mix of sun and clouds, but clouds will increase as we go into the afternoon as the next disturbance moves along this front, bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms. High temperatures Tuesday will be in the 70s, but how far into the 70s will depend on if or when you see a shower or thunderstorm. With the showers moving through dew points will climb a little, making for some muggier nights with low temperatures in the low and mid 60s for the rest of the week. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will move through Wednesday with highs near 80°. The second half of the week will be warm and humid with a mix of clouds and sunshine, and highs will be into the low and mid 80s. Each day some showers and thunderstorms will develop, bringing the potential for flooding downpours. There will be communities that stay dry heading toward the end of the week. This muggy and unsettled pattern will last through the weekend and into next week.
