Pennsylvania Weather Outlook
By: Kyle Imhoff, Penn State Meteorology Department - 05/14/2019
A weak and moisture-starved front will remain near the Mason-Dixon Line during the day on Wednesday, as afternoon temperatures will reach the 60s with some 70s in southwestern PA. An isolated shower is possible during the day. A much stronger front will
approach the region on Thursday afternoon into Friday with widespread showers and thunderstorms. Saturday will be primarily dry but much cooler with morning lows in the upper 30s in the north/west to near 50 in the south/east and afternoon highs in the
upper 50s to upper 60s. A disturbance will bring periods of rain overnight Saturday and into Sunday with temperatures remaining rather chilly. Showers should exit the eastern half of the state by Monday evening as high pressure builds in. Current computer
model guidance indicates most of the state should see between one-half and two inches of rain for the period from Thursday evening through Tuesday morning. Temperatures will remain near or below seasonal levels through the middle of next week.
Long-range guidance has flipped on the signal for May from last week as rather cool temperatures are forecasted through the end of the month. Precipitation is favored to remain near normal levels through the middle of the month but may trend drier toward the
latter half of May.
