Weather Outlook for December 2, 2014


Posted: December 2, 2014

Mild temperatures and more precipitation in the forecast.

Cold high pressure will be gliding across southern Canada as a stream of generally weak disturbances from the Pacific pass by to the south or west of Pennsylvania during the next several days. As a result, clouds will dominate the skies with only Thursday offering a break with some sunshine. Temperatures will average near to slightly above seasonal levels due mainly to nighttime cloud cover keeping readings above average. A few showers are expected during the first half of Wednesday and another round of showers is expected this coming weekend, though the southern counties are favored for the rain. A push of polar air early next week (probably Tuesday) will bring chillier conditions, lake effect snow showers and some sun east of the Appalachians. Overall, the middle of December should be influenced more from the Pacific than the Arctic, so expect milder than average temperatures and more frequent showers until just before the solstice.
