Temperatures continued to climb above average throughout the week and temperatures today made it feel more like spring. Highs were incredibly mild sitting around 60 degrees which is 30 degrees above average for this time of year. Some spots even broke 70 degrees. Even though it has been mild it was a little dreary with the region under a mainly cloudy sky. Some patchy drizzle or a stray light shower also began to push in during the afternoon hours.
The system that is bringing severe storms, ice, or snow to a good portion of the United States will move through Central Pennsylvania tonight. Therefore, it will remain cloudy tonight and showers will become steadier during the overnight hours. A rumble of thunder also cannot be ruled out. It will remain mild with temperatures staying fairly steady in the 50s. A wind advisory will also be in effect early Sunday morning as winds will be capable of gutsy up to 55 MPH.
Showers and mild conditions will carry over into Sunday. However, as the system pulls away showers will taper off and cloud cover will break up. The rest of the day will be mainly dry with some sunshine seen. Temperatures will start off in the 50s early Sunday morning then gradually lower into the 40s throughout the day. The overnight hours will be fairly quiet and dry with lows dipping into the 30s.
It will be a nice and dry start to the work week. Periods of clouds and sun will be seen Monday and temperatures will remain above average. Highs will sit around 50 degrees and drop into the 30s overnight. Highs will once again hit 50 degrees Tuesday and it will be mainly cloudy. There will also be a slight chance for some patchy drizzle or a stray shower as the next system moves in late.
The region will hold onto the chance for showers Wednesday. Shower activity will be rather hit or miss and temperatures will reach into the 50s for the day. Precipitation looks to carry over into Thursday. Scattered showers will kick off Thursday before mixing will some flurries later in the day.
