Up and down we go. And we are currently on the way up.
It was a chilly morning around the state with most places starting out the day in the 30s. Those temperatures are recovering Wednesday afternoon with sunshine and a southerly wind. We will top out close to the average of 61 degrees Wednesday afternoon. At the same time, a cold front is passing just off to the north in Pennsylvania. Clouds will increase as we move through the day and then there could be a little drizzle or maybe a few showers tonight with that front so close. The front will slowly move away Thursday, keeping some clouds around. However, temperatures will keep on climbing. We will top out in the mid 60s Thursday afternoon. Then, we turn back down again.
Cooler air will move our way Thursday night as that front pulls away and a new one moves in. Rain will arrive overnight Thursday and continue into Friday, trapping the cooler air. Highs will take a big hit and only make it into the low 50s. The rain will continue on and off through Saturday before this storm gets out of here. Temperatures will start to climb Saturday but maybe only to near 60 degrees before another big warmup kicks in Sunday when highs jump into the mid 70s.
There is the chance for a late-day thunderstorm Sunday, but it looks like the next storm should hold off until Monday. It will bring rain with it, and eventually knock temperatures back down again. Welcome to spring!
