Saturday: Mostly cloudy with a 10% chance of a spotty snow shower. High: 31, Low: 23
High pressure will remain over the area tomorrow, with a minor disturbance passing to our south. We’ll all stay quiet and dry, though most of Pennsylvania will have mostly cloudy skies while the rest of us are partly cloudy. Temperatures are still going to be cold, but they’ll start to improve tomorrow, as highs will get into the teens and wind chills will finally get back above zero briefly. Clouds begin to increase Friday night into Saturday, as a weak storm system approaches and a pattern change begins.
With the overall pattern shifting colder air to the western US with a ridge over the Southeast US, we’ll really start to warm up into next week. Starting with Saturday, we’ll get temperatures back to near 30 under mostly cloudy skies. The weak disturbance we’re expecting will bring a few snow showers to the north overnight Saturday, and then as temperatures warm this precipitation will gradually become a wintry mix for Sunday and cold air tries to hold on at the surface. Once this passes, a low will set up well to our west, pushing more warm air and moisture our way for next week. Expect cloudy skies with chances of rain showers pretty much every day with temperatures jumping into the 40’s. Finer details on which days will see more rain will be hashed out once this cold heads out of here.
