Moderate rain arrives overnight, but quickly exits Friday

Today's Forecast
Here is a look at your Friday forecast. Some early morning showers, but rapid clearing will lead to a decent afternoon. Happy Friday! – ssumner@localdvm.com

Overnight, steady to moderate rain will move into the region. A few rumbles of thunder are possible, and some gusty winds are possible, but no severe weather is expected. Rain amounts look to range from around a half-inch to near one inch, with isolated higher amounts possible. Friday, our weather will dramatically improve as the first of several front moves offshore by mid-morning. Mostly sunny skies and pleasant conditions are expected during the day, the air behind the front is not that cold. As a result, you can expect another mild mid-November day, as the thermometer holds in the 60s. A second front looks to cross the area Saturday and with this front, there will be lighter precipitation, but colder air around, especially out toward the Allegany Front, resulting in a coating of snow across the ridges of the Allegheny Highlands. More intermittent snow showers may linger over the highlands Saturday night, with dry and colder conditions expected further east. After a mainly dry Sunday, the last of several cold fronts move in overnight Sunday into Monday, and with chilly air already in place, Monday morning may bring a mix of snow and rain showers, so conditions on certain roads may quickly go downhill. By Monday afternoon, however, the front/disturbance exits to the northeast, and high pressure will once again bring us sunshine and dry weather later Monday. Temperatures will look to fall some over the weekend and into Monday but rebound by Wednesday with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s for most of the region.

Your Friday is far from a washout, but you may need an umbrella early in the morning, shades in the afternoon. Temperatures will cool slightly during the day but really get chilly Friday night. – ssumner@localdvm.com
