This is what I have gathered from Winter Weather Week. Now, the weather forecast for today with meteorologist Maryellen Pann: Last night, we had clear skies that caused temperatures to drop into the 20s and low to mid 30s.
With a north wind today, it will be much chillier than yesterday and we will be slightly below average. However, as we move into the workweek, temperatures will gradually warm back up. Unfortunately, we are in need of some rain, but it looks like we will have to wait until late week for that chance to return.
There are a few clouds, especially to the south, according to the news eight storm team live radar network. Some weak energy trapped in the upper levels may produce passing clouds this morning, but it should be mostly sunny.
The forecast shows scattered clouds this morning and mostly sunny skies this afternoon, with highs in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees. Some areas further south may reach the low 50s this evening.
It will be a clear and crisp evening with temperatures falling to around 40 degrees. Overnight, temperatures will drop even colder than this morning, ranging from the upper 20s to around 32 degrees.
Areas of frost will be possible tomorrow morning, followed by plenty of sunshine with temperatures back in the mid 50s. If you’re looking to rake up some leaves, the next several days will be quiet with plenty of sunshine and slightly warmer temperatures as we head back into the workweek.
The York skycam shows the skies brightening up, with some clouds. Overall, it’s expected to be a decent day. Current temperatures range from 28 in Lewistown to 37 degrees in Chambersburg.
High pressure is in control in the Ohio Valley, causing a clockwise flow and bringing our winds from the north, which keeps temperatures cooler. The predictor shows passing clouds early this morning, but plenty of sunshine in the afternoon with a northerly breeze. Tomorrow, the winds will shift from the south southwest, allowing temperatures to get back up into the mid 50s with plenty of sunshine.
Tuesday will be similar, with slightly cooler temperatures due to northwest winds. We are dry until Friday when showers may move in the evening.
Before that, temperatures will warm to near 60 on Thursday and in the low 60s on Friday. The showers may linger into early Saturday morning, but most of the weekend is expected to be dry with slightly cooler temperatures in the mid 50s on Saturday and around 50 degrees on Sunday..
