Did you enjoy a day of Capri pants, flip-flops and short-sleeved shirts?
We hope so—because the National Weather Service’s outlook for the next few days looks far less sunny (both figuratively and literally).
What’s on tap for today?
Showers, for starts. Like, an 80 percent chance of them.
The National Weather Service website also indicates that the high will be near 51 degrees today with possible precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch. The temperature is expected to dip to 41 degrees overnight.
Sunday is expected to start a little warmer—48 degrees. But the National Weather Service said to expect more of the wet stuff.
Then Sunday is when things might start getting dicey.
Rain is likely before 2 a.m., then rain and snow is likely.
Yup, you read that right: Possibility of snow.
It will be cloudy, and the low is expected to hover in the 30s. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible, according to the website.
The rest of the week? So far, the seven-day forecast is dominated by the possibility of rain and snow.
In fact, The State Emergency Operations Center is monitoring Hurricane Sandy and preparing for a potential response.
Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency has been engaged with the National Weather Service, state agencies, and county emergency management agencies to prepare for this storm.
NWS has said that the track for this storm has Pennsylvania in its crosshair and the storm will significantly impact much of Pennsylvania.
