Reported by Meteorologist Regina Miller
Temperatures will start to surge for parts of the region this afternoon. A front is draped across our region. It will be relatively cooler for northeastern zones, with the warmest air in areas along and west of the ridges of Route 219. Altoona falls right along the dividing line of the two zones and could go either way depending upon whether the southwesterly winds take over. West of the ridges and south of the front could top out around 80. To the north and east of the front, temps will likely be in the upper 60s to low 70s. There will still be a couple areas seeing a shower and thunderstorm Thursday. Everywhere should be in the warm air on Friday with highs well in the 70s to near 80. There will be a pop up shower or thunderstorm in some spots, but most areas and much of the time will be rain free. A slow moving front will bring more numerous showers and thunderstorms Saturday. Heavier downpours are possible. The front will still be close enough to bring the possibility of a shower or thunderstorm Sunday. Monday and Tuesday will be seasonably mild with the chance for a pop up shower or thunderstorm either day.
