Some patchy fog will form early Thursday with temperatures falling into the low and mid 50s across the region. High pressure played a part in our weather Wednesday, but it will have a more prominent role Thursday as it brings cooler and less humid air to the region. Thursday will start with a mix of clouds and sunshine, but turn to more sunshine later in the day. Some fair weather clouds will develop as we go into the afternoon with many if not all communities staying dry with high temperatures in the mid 70s for the Northern Tier and Laurel Highlands, but getting close to 80° for those of you in the valleys. High pressure will stick around into Friday, and we’ll start with temperatures in the low to mid 50s, and highs will reach the mid 70s to around 80°. The area of high pressure will begin to move off to our east as our weekend begins and a disturbance will pass to our south. Given this setup I cannot rule out a few showers sneaking in late Saturday. Some of those showers will move in Sunday with temperatures falling back into the 70s for everybody. Next week is looking unsettled, with the chance for showers and thunderstorms returning as we start the work week.
