Rain moved through overnight and it’s still damp across the region this morning. The radar around 9am showed the steady rain pushing away:
Rain totals were pretty modest.
Clouds will break for some sunshine from west to east during the midday and afternoon.
Temperatures are as warm as they will be all day and we expect readings to be in the upper 30s by sunset.
Cold! For a change. Chilly northwest winds, clouds and even a flurry or two. Will feel like……December.
Even colder! The lake-effect machine will fire up as the cold air blows over the warm Great Lakes. Snow will accumulate several inches in parts of NW PA and SW PA and even parts of NE Ohio.
The cold air will get the boot after only visiting for a couple of days as a southwest wind develops. A nice afternoon with highs in the lower 40s.
The warm up will continue! But there will also be rain at times Monday through Christmas Day.
Temperatures will soar to 60 or so by Wednesday and Thursday. Christmas Day MIGHT be colder but might also be quite warm….right now I like a compromise with a forecast of 50-55. Balmy!
