An arctic front not only brought white out conditions to Central Pennsylvania yesterday but a blast of arctic air. It was a frigid start to the day with temperatures dipping into the teens and single digits. Breezy conditions made it feel colder with wind chills in the single digits.
Unfortunately, temperatures did not warm up much today with highs only reaching into the teens and 20s. Fortunately, it has been the first sunny day the region has seen in a while. The overnight hours will remain dry with just a few patchy clouds. However, it will be another frigid night with temperatures ten degrees below normal. Lows will dip into the teens for the nighttime hours.
Conditions will remain dry for the end of the week and temperatures will be right around average. Periods of clouds and sun will be seen across Central Pennsylvania before some more cloud cover builds in late overnight. Highs will reach into the mid 30s during the day and dip into the 20s at night. The weekend will hang on to dry conditions which means anyone expecting to hit the road will have safe driving conditions for the holiday.
It will be warmer for the weekend with temperatures reaching into the 40s. However, Saturday will see a little more cloud cover with the region expected to see a partly cloudy sky. Highs will break 40 degrees for the day. Overnight lows will be around average as they dip into the 20s. Temperatures will reach into the low 40s on Sunday under a mainly sunny sky.
