Weather Forecast Discussion

Record-challenging warmth Thursday and Friday

Mild with periods of rain and a t-storm Saturday

TONIGHT: Partly cloudy with patchy late-night fog. Low: 41

THURSDAY: Areas of morning fog; otherwise, breezy and warm with a mixture of clouds and sun. High: 69

THURSDAY NIGHT: Rather cloudy and mild with a stray shower. Low: 50

Morning showers and clouds on Wednesday gave way to sunshine during the afternoon hours as highs reached the low 60s. Temperatures will remain mild overnight only dipping into the low 40s under partly cloudy skies. By daybreak on Thursday patchy fog may develop in some locations.

Temperatures on Thursday will sky-rocket to nearly 70 degrees and challenge record highs across the area. Record highs in Allentown and Reading are 71 and 72, respectively. Along with the record-challenging warmth look for a mix of clouds and sun. Thursday night there may be a few stray showers in the area as a weak cold front moves through.

A passing shower is also possible on Friday as a warm front lifts north through Pennsylvania. However, the bigger story on Friday will remain the extreme warmth as highs soar into the low 70s. Record highs on Friday may be out of reach though as most locations have records in the mid or upper 70s.

The mild air sticks around into the weekend as highs will once again be around 70 degrees on Saturday, but on Saturday those temps come at a price of rain. While rain is possible at any time on Saturday, the heaviest, steadiest rain will hold off until the afternoon and evening hours. In fact, some thunderstorms may get in the mix before the front passes through Saturday evening. Rainfall amounts will generally be between .25" and .75" from this event. In the front's wake, temperatures will tumble back into the seasonable mid 40s on Sunday. That alone is enough to give you a chilly based on what we've been experiencing lately. However, you factor in a brisk wind on top of those temps and it's going to feel like it's in the 30s (possibly 20s) most of the day.
