The extreme east is still cloudy tonight. These clouds will linger 
into the early morning in the Delaware Valley, with mainly clear 
skies over the rest of the state. The air mass is quite humid and 
with clear skies, areas of fog are likely to form. Low temperatures 
will be in the 50s statewide.

Thursday will be generally sunny and warmer, as a southerly flow 
develops. There may be some fog and low clouds early in some 
valleys, but this will dissipate rapidly. An approaching cold front 
will push clouds along with scattered showers and thunderstorms into 
western Pennsylvania late in the day. These showers will push across 
the rest of the commonwealth Thursday night. High temperatures will 
range from the low 70s in the Poconos to the low 80s across much of 
western and central Pennsylvania.
