We’re starting off in the upper 40s and low to mid 50s across the region today. Grab the sunglasses for today, but an umbrella may be a good idea as wall as a few stray showers will move over the region. Many locations will stay dry as temperatures remain fall-like, with a good breeze and highs only reaching the mid and upper 60s in the Northern Tier and Laurel Highlands, but getting into the upper 60s and low 70s in the valleys. Average high temperatures this time of year is near 80° across the region. A few clouds will be around tonight and into Friday, with temperatures dropping into the upper 40s in the Laurel Highlands and Northern Tier, and staying near 50° in the valleys. Friday will have more sunshine, but it will be another cool day with highs in the low 70s to mid 70s. High pressure will move over the region as we start the weekend, bringing sunshine for Saturday with temperatures closer to seasonal. The high will not stick around, moving to the east later on Saturday and into Sunday. Clouds will start to increase Sunday ahead of a disturbance that will bring showers and thunderstorms. We won’t cool down after that disturbance moves through as warm, humid air begins moving in. The first half of next week will have a mix of clouds and sunshine, but I am keeping my eye on the chance for a few showers developing each afternoon as temperatures get back into the low and mid 80s. Nights will turn muggy early next week as well, with low temperatures staying in the 60s.
