A Tornado Watch is in effect for Carbon, Columbia, Monroe, Montour, Northumberland, Schuylkill, Snyder and Union counties through the evening. Strong to severe storms are possible with heavy downpours, damaging wind, hail and a low-end chance of a brief tornado. The severe threat will taper off through the evening. However, a few showers and weaker storms could linger tonight. Lows will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
You can expect areas of fog and a lot of clouds Friday morning. Then, those clouds will break for some afternoon sunshine. It’ll be breezy and cool with highs in the lower to middle 70s. Some of the higher elevations could stay in the 60s. For sure, it will feel a bit like autumn!
Saturday morning will be chilly! With lows around 50, our normally cooler spots will be in the 40s. The rest of the day will be mild and nice. The afternoon will turn out partly sunny and temperatures should reach the lower to middle 70s.
For the second half of the weekend, we’re tracking another cold front that will give us the chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm. This is not going to be a steady all-day rain–great news if you have outdoor plans. Highs will be in the middle and upper 70s.
Dry weather will return on Monday. However, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday brings back the chance of a few showers from time to time.
