A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for northeastern Pennsylvania this evening. A strong cold front is moving across the state, which will continue to fire up scattered showers and storms. This time, storms have the potential to produce heavy rain, gusty winds and a lot of lightning.

I expect the rain and storms to end before or around midnight. Then, the rest of the night will stay mostly cloudy and somewhat warm with lows in the middle 60s. It'll stay muggy, too, for the better part of the night. In fact, it'll probably take until morning for the humidity to really drop.

Tomorrow's big weather story is all about the cooler and less humid weather! Any morning clouds will give way to sunshine by the afternoon. With lower humidity and highs near 80, it'll certainly feel more comfortable than the past couple of days. There will be a gusty wind along with this refreshing air mass.

We'll wake up Friday morning with temperatures in the lower 50s. Some of us could even be in the upper 40s! Then, another mostly sunny afternoon will send highs to near 80, if not a touch warmer. Here's more good news as we end the work week: the humidity will stay low.

Things will start to change for us this weekend! Saturday will end up a little bit warmer. I'm expecting those afternoon numbers to reach the lower and middle 80s, but the humidity will remain manageable. As the next system starts to get closer, it'll spill more clouds across our skies during the afternoon.

By Sunday, the humidity really goes up. With our next big storm system getting closer, we'll stay on the warm side of it for the second half of the weekend. Sunday will give us, once again, highs in the middle 80s. At the same time, you can expect more clouds with a better chance of showers and thunderstorms. Sunday doesn't look like a wash out, but keep checking back here if you have outdoor plans.

We'll stay on the warm and humid side of this storm system for Monday. Since it'll be moving across the Northeast for the early part of the week, we'll keep the clouds along with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Rather than highs in the middle 80s, I think Monday afternoon will give us highs in the lower 80s.

Another big change will happen with our weather Tuesday and Wednesday! You can forget about the heat and humidity. Highs will be in the middle and upper 70s. In the morning, we'll be in the middle and upper 50s. This is great sleeping weather, but it sure won't feel like a typical late-July afternoon. Clouds will mix with some sunshine both days. Plus, we can't rule out a passing rain shower.
