Weather Outlook for September 1


Posted: September 1, 2015

The month of August was very dry across the state of Pennsylvania. Most of the western and central Pennsylvania saw just half (or less) of their usual monthly rain totals. The upcoming seven days will continue to be dry with little in the way of widespread, organized precipitation.

Temperatures will be well above normal for the first few days of meteorological fall, with afternoon temperatures climbing into the low 80’s to low 90’s through Friday. There is a chance (<30%) of showers and thunderstorms each day through the end of the week, though the majority of the state will remain dry on any given day. High pressure will keep things dry through the early part of next week with temperatures remaining above normal. The next chance for precipitation will not be until later Tuesday into the day on Wednesday as a front will approach the area. Some portions of the state may not see measurable precipitation before the middle of next week.
