The high pressure positioned to the north of Pennsylvania is allowing for a light easterly wind from the Atlantic. This helped bring overcast skies to the region yesterday and will once again produce a thick layer of clouds to start this Wednesday morning. However, the sun should break through these clouds sooner to bring plenty of sunshine near lunchtime. This will also occur tomorrow with early clouds and plenty of afternoon sun. In fact, it will feel a tad summer-like tomorrow and Friday afternoon after cool starts with highs in the mid 70s to close out the work week! The rest of the week will be dry, except for a few light showers overnight Friday from a cold front passing through the Commonwealth.
Hurricane Matthew will be a major hurricane as it affects the eastern coast of Florida and has an impact on the Carolinas Thursday and Friday. It is looking less likely, however, that Matthew will have much of an impact locally. The latest track keeps the storm well south and east of the region. There could be a few showers from that cold front overnight Friday and Saturday, but that same front will help push Matthew away from Central PA. Other than some clouds and stray showers Saturday, the weekend forecast has improved. Sunday should be dry with clearing skies and early next week looks pleasant as Matthew cycles offshore. This is still a variable forecast so we will keep you posted, but at this time, impacts from this major storm look minimal here.
