Pennsylvania Weather Outlook
By: Kyle Imhoff, Assistant State Climatologist - 08/23/2019
Warm and unsettled weather will transition into drier and pleasant weather over the weekend.
Muggy and wet conditions will continue until a front passes through the state on Thursday. Any storms that develop during this time could have gusty winds, heavy downpours, and hail. After the front moves through, drier and cooler air will arrive for the
weekend. Getting the jackets out of the closet may be necessary as morning temperatures will be on the chillier side, dropping down to the mid 40s to mid 50s for much of the state on Saturday and Sunday. Afternoon highs will be primarily in the 70s with plenty
of sunshine -- a very nice weekend for late summer outdoor activities. The pleasant weather should continue into the early half of next week, though humidity levels will be on the rise and some showers may start to sneak in to the region by Monday or Tuesday.
Current long-range model guidance indicates a seasonal month of September with respect to temperatures. Some models are hinting at a rather dry middle to end of the month.
