Big changes headed our way tonight as the next front moves into the area. A cold front will push out the warm weather we’ve enjoyed, to bring in a far cooler air mass for the rest of the week. A few showers will be likely moving through as the sun sets and temperatures start to fall. A few rumbles of thunder are also possible, with most thunderstorms weakening before they reach NEPA. Lows will fall to the mid 50s tonight, after showers die out around midnight.
Friday will stay cloudy after the cold front, with a decent temperature swing back down to low 60s for highs. A stray shower or two will be possible heading into the weekend, as moisture continues to stream off the Great Lakes. Lows will fall into the mid and low 40s for the weekend. Saturday and Sunday warm to the upper 50s with more clouds than sun once again. It will feel like fall for the next week, but it won’t be very full of sunshine.
By Monday we see our next system approaching which will mean a rainier forecast. Showers will be likely for Monday and Tuesday, with highs back in the mid 50s underneath overcast skies. Heaviest rains may be around on Tuesday, but much of the week will have possible rain. Lows will stay in the mid and low 40s for the week.
