Weather Outlook for Pennsylvania Brings Much-Needed Reprieve

Most reporting stations have reported above normal precipitation over the past 30 days in Pennsylvania. On Wednesday, all of the rains that fell early in the week will have moved out of the state. A mix of sun and clouds will dictate the weather through the early half of the weekend. Temperatures will generally be above normal, with afternoon high temperatures in the upper 70’s to upper 80’s through Saturday.

 

By Saturday afternoon, some showers and thunderstorms may start to creep into the state as moisture from what could possibly be an early season tropical cyclone moves northward over the eastern United States. As a result, the air will be very muggy as dew points reach into the 60’s. This tropical-like air mass will continue to bring scattered showers and thunderstorms and humid weather through the early half of next week. While some places could remain dry through next Wednesday, most areas will see measurable rainfall over the next 7 days. Current model guidance indicates a warm start to June with cooler conditions arriving towards the middle of the month. Precipitation is favored to be above normal for the next three to four weeks.
