Well, it rained! Amazing! Haven’t seen too much of it this month. In fact, in places like Reading, Allentown, and Altoona had received less than ¼ inch of rain, and Williamsport, Philadelphia, Scranton had received less than ½” of rain for the month prior to this rain. Much of the state was very dry. So this rain was very, very beneficial for everyone.
And as good as this rain has been … the pattern continues. Let the endless summer weather continue, and the dryness start again. Yes, our afternoon temperatures should soar to and above that 80-degree mark once again through the end of the week; however, a major, albeit short-lived, change is coming over the weekend.
A major shot of very chilly air will side swipe us Sat – Mon. Highs on Sunday and Monday may only be in the mid 60’s. It will try to warm up again afterwards.
Outlook for rain? Maybe Saturday as front drops south out of Canada. Other than that, it will remain dry.
*Please note the temperatures are given for population weighted towns, which are mainly in the valleys. So ridges and cooler locales just adjust temps down a couple of degrees.
