High temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday state-wide will rise into the low-mid 90’s while low temperatures will drop in to the 60’s, with some areas in the far southeastern part of the state not falling below 70 at night. Showers and thunderstorms ahead of the aforementioned cold front will approach the northwest part of the state on Thursday afternoon/evening. The remainder of the state will see the chance for showers and thunderstorms overnight Thursday night through mid-day on Friday, with any lingering activity over southeastern Pennsylvania exiting the region by Friday evening.
After the front passes through the region, the weekend will be dry with seasonal temperatures and much lower humidity levels. The threat for rain does not disappear for long, however, as another disturbance will approach the region overnight Sunday into the day on Monday bringing with it the chance for showers and thunderstorms for the early part of next week. Temperatures will be near, or slightly below, normal levels for the early-middle part of next week as the predominant flow during this period will be out of the northwest.
