Weather Outlook for Week of April 10, 2018

Temperatures will warm considerably between Wednesday and Friday across the state. The northern half of Pennsylvania could see off and on rain showers on Thursday into early Friday as a couple of quick-moving disturbances move through the flow. By Friday, most places will see afternoon temperatures in the 70’s, with the exception of far northern Pennsylvania that will remain in the 60’s. A very strong storm developing in the Plains will result in a potent cold front approaching the region later Saturday into the day on Sunday. The front will slowly work its way through the state Sunday into Monday with showers and thunderstorms bringing the potential for heavy downpours, frequent lightning, and some gusty winds during this time. Any showers and storms will wind down by later Monday evening, with a few scattered rain/snow showers in northern and western PA on Tuesday. Temperatures will cool down to below freezing across much of the state by Tuesday morning and afternoon highs only reaching the 40’s and lower 50’s on Tuesday and Wednesday. Current model guidance continues to indicate cooler than normal conditions through the end of April. Rather wet weather will persist for the next two to three weeks.
