The warm weather pattern is continuing. Tonight will be partly cloudy and unseasonably mild for October with lows in the 60s, some places may have a tough time reaching into the 60s. There will be a few pockets of valley fog but it should not be too widespread. Wednesday will also be unseasonably warm and humid with a mix of clouds and sunshine. Highs will be well into the 70s to near 80.
A cold front will bring more in the way of cloudiness along with showers and thunderstorms on Thursday. Some of these could be heavy. Behind the front, cooler air will move in for the end of the week. The remnants of what is now Hurricane Michael will be passing to our south, and while it likely won’t directly bring us rainfall, it’s going to help pull in cool air behind the front later this week. Friday will be partly sunny, much cooler and less humid with highs in the 50s. Temperatures will drop into the 30s to the lower 40s by Saturday morning with frost possible in some of the coldest spots. Saturday will also be partly sunny and seasonably cool with highs in the 50s. It’s going to be a chilly late afternoon for Penn State’s matchup against Michigan State with a 3:30pm kickoff. A more widespread frost is possible Saturday night but most of us should avoid a killing freeze. We’ll have a mix of clouds and sunshine on Sunday, but the day may finish with a mostly cloudy sky. Highs on Sunday will be in the 50s to the lower 60s. The next front will bring more clouds than sunshine with the chance for showers on Monday with highs in the 50s to near 60. Showers may still be possible early Tuesday and some chilly air will return for the later next week.
