Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Enjoy a couple of partly sunny days with seasonable temps in the 70s today and tomorrow!  A weak system to our south will graze parts of our area with clouds and a few showers tonight and early tomorrow morning, especially south of the Scranton area, into the Poconos and Lehigh Valley.  If those showers poke into our area, they will end up dissipating into the later morning and afternoon Wednesday, allowing for more partly sunny skies and temps settling in the 70s.  By Thursday, a more vigorous system will arrive with downpours, t-storms and on/off showers through the day and night!

The deep system responsible for those showers will be pulling away on Friday, leaving our area with some breaks of sun, cool temps in the 60s to near 70 degrees and a few lingering showers.  Yes, I know….MEMORIAL WEEKEND—It’s on my mind too!  Saturday looks pretty good with temps in the 70s to near 80 degrees and with ample sunshine!  Another trough and energetic system will be arriving for Sunday and Monday with more scattered showers and t-storms along with clouds, sun peeps and temps again suppressed in the 70s—that’s it!  Despite the weather—-go for the RIDE (see quote)!
