Weather Forecast Discussion

Areas of fog overnight, some dense

Rain returns Sunday and into the early work week

OVERNIGHT: Plenty of clouds with spotty drizzle. Areas of fog, some dense. Low: 41

SUNDAY: Morning fog, cloudy with a little rain and drizzle, mainly in the afternoon. High: 52

SUNDAY NIGHT: Rain becoming steady towards dawn; becoming windy. Low: 40

 

***A DENSE FOG ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FOR LUZERNE AND PIKE COUTNIES UNTIL 1:00 AM, AND FOR THE REST OF THE VIEWING AREA THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING***
 

It was a cloudy day Saturday, but we were mild with highs above average in the upper 40s. A decent amount of fog formed across the area and we'll continue to see that overnight, so be cautious for reduced visibilities into Sunday morning. With an abundance of low level moisture, there may also be some spotty drizzle. Expect plenty of clouds to stick around too as low temperatures only drop into the low 40s overnight.

A complex area of low pressure systems will begin to affect us on Sunday. The initial area of low pressure will move into the Ohio River Valley, but will quickly transfer its energy over to a coastal low that will strengthen as it moves up the East Coast on Monday and Tuesday.

As a result, we'll see some intermittent rain and drizzle as early as Sunday morning, but will primarily see the rain during the afternoon and at night. The rain will then continue through Monday and into Tuesday morning before tapering off. The rain will be heavy at times with total rainfall amounts around 0.75" from this event, but some locations may end up with 1.50" or more. There is also the possibility for localized flooding.

The other effect from this will be increased wind speeds as this coastal low strengthens. Wind gusts of 30-40 mph will be possible on Monday. In fact, the winds might be strong enough Monday afternoon into Monday night to pull some colder air down from the north, which in turn could result in the precipitation changing over to wet snow in the higher terrain and places like the Poconos. Please stay tuned for updates on this complex situation. As a result, we'll see some intermittent rain and drizzle as early as Sunday morning, but will primarily see the rain during the afternoon and at night. The rain will then continue through Monday and into Tuesday morning before tapering off. The rain will be heavy at times with total rainfall amounts around 0.75" from this event, but some locations may end up with 1.50" or more. There is also the possibility for localized flooding.

As for the temperatures, look for highs to top out  in the low 50s on Sunday before retreating to the low 40s on Monday. Highs will bounce back into the upper 40s on Tuesday and into the low 50s on Wednesday.
