Strong and persistent winds remain the focus of the forecast along with the cold air that has settled across the Midstate. Today, we have a stronger breeze than yesterday morning, so already the wind is having an impact making temperatures in the 40s feel more like the 30s. The winds will finally relax later tonight, but before that happens high temperatures will be near 50F with only peeks of sunshine between all of the cloud cover.
More clouds arrive tomorrow in advance of moisture coming up from the south. The daytime hours on Sunday will be dry, but heading into Sunday night and early Monday morning a few stray rain or snow showers will be around. Temperatures will be slightly above freezing, however isolated colder valleys or typical cold spots across the area may see some slick conditions develop. Precipitation amounts will be light and hopefully temperatures do stay above freezing to avoid small icing concerns. We will be watching this forecast closely.
The weather pattern stays active into next week with multiple chances for showers and cold air waiting to push into the Northeast. A system moves in from the southwest Tuesday afternoon with a better chance of delivering a more sizable amount of rain. Rainfall amounts appear to favor an average of a half inch based on the latest forecast guidance.
Another storm system is poised to push through the eastern US late next week, followed by significantly colder and windy conditions Thursday and Friday. The cold airmass is likely to be the coldest so far this fall with highs only in the 30s and low in the 20s.
