A familiar pattern will return this Wednesday and Thursday and will bring above average temperatures back to Central Pennsylvania.
We had a hot and humid end to summer and beginning of fall. High pressure would sit over Bermuda and pump the hot and humid air from our southern states up the east coast. A cold front then would help that high pressure move the hot and humid air into Central Pennsylvania.
That same pattern will set up Wednesday through Thursday of this week and bring warm air back into Central Pennsylvania. Wednesday’s highs will be in the mid to upper 60s with a few cities and towns reaching the lower 70s. That will be 10-15 degrees above average for this time of the year. Rain will arrive late Wednesday afternoon but the temperatures will remain above average.
Thursday will be just as warm as Wednesday. The cold front will stall just to our west and that will allow the winds to continue to come out of the south and southwest and allow the warm air to continue to move north. Rain will fall throughout the day but it will be a warm rain.
