We won’t be breaking any high temperatures records here this week but for sure the high humidity will is making it feel hotter than it really is. The record high for today is 97 set back in 1932 and for tomorrow it’s 99 set in 1953. That was the year when the first 4 days in September were 95, 99, 100 and 91.
There is no chance of rain today and only a 10 percent chance tomorrow. On Thursday and Friday the chance will increase up to 30% and 40% when a ‘back door’ cold front delivers scattered showers and slightly cooler weather to end the week. These back door fronts sneak down from New England as a shallow push of cooler air from the east.
A ridge of high pressure will strengthen over PA this weekend and this will serve to stabilize the atmosphere keeping the probability of showers very low heading into Labor day.
A strong cold front will plow thru Tuesday evening from the west followed by a Canadian air mass in town for Wednesday and Thursday.
Today notice how hazy the sky looks. Satellite pictures do show a veil of smoke drifting over PA today from wild fires out west.
