Weekend weather: Rain, rain, rain and did we mention … rain


You often get a little ... summer wants to show up and winter wants stay on ... "We will do the best we can to have signs up as they need to be, or even close roads as they have to be, but we can't be everywhere all of the time". There is a slight chance we see some showers on Sunday, but it's looking unlikely.

After a cool start in the low to mid 40s, temperatures will climb into the mid 60s for the afternoon with a NE wind 5-15 miles per hour. Then Tuesday, we have a light rain and snow mix for a large part of the state.

As the summer approaches, cool fronts tend to begin stalling either just north or right over the top of our area. Please make sure to secure anything that could blow away down or bring it inside. South wind 5 to 10 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 20 miles per hour.

Thursday: Sunshine and blustery. Which is great news for the Altoona Curve home opener.

I hope the alliteration gives you a chuckle, because this wild weather is no laughing matter.

A cool night is on tap tonight as lows fall into the 40s north and 50s south. Thursday will also be a very windy day making it feel colder.

Winds will be gusty on Thursday, but not as strong as on Wednesday. Temperatures have dropped into the mid-20s.

A second storm system will move in for Friday. Cloudy skies with occasional showers will dominate the afternoon before rain and snow turn into all snow late Friday night. "Mostly cloudy with scattered rain or snow for lower valleys and snow is likely above 6,000' with 1" - 3" possible at pass level.

Friday morning will be below freezing everywhere.

Brisk and chilly with sunshine and some clouds. "Wednesday's highs are expected to be in the 50s". Highs on Saturday will be in the lower 70s. Sunday we will have high temperatures in the mid to upper 40s.

On Friday, the NCM added that, "The amount of clouds will increase over some eastern, coastal areas and islands". Highs are held in the middle 40s. Highest temperatures of 8 to 10 degrees in moderate, southeast winds which will freshen later in the day.
