Weather Outlook for April 12, 2017


Posted: April 12, 2017

A period of dry weather with seasonal temperatures will precede more unsettled weather toward the weekend.

The remnants of a weak cold front in the form of a few lingering showers will exit eastern Pennsylvania by Wednesday evening. Temperatures will be cooler than the very mild start to the week behind the front with highs generally in the 60’s and lows in the upper 30’s and 40’s. Some parts of northern PA may dip below freezing on Friday morning. Thursday and Friday will be primarily dry under the influence of high pressure, but a disturbance will approach the region by Saturday bringing more rain showers to the state. Some places may remain dry on Sunday though more showers will overspread the area by the afternoon/evening hours. No organized, widespread rains are expected heading into early next week but the chance for at least some showers in parts of the state will persist through the middle of next week.
