Pennsylvania will remain in the battle zone between two airmasses 
on Sunday as a frontal boundary remains draped across the 
commonwealth, separating cooler air to the north from warm, humid 
air to the south.

There could be a few showers overnight, and some thunder is possible 
across western Pennsylvania. Low temperatures will range from the 
mid 40s across the northern tier of Pennsylvania to around 60 
degrees near the Mason-Dixon line.

Sunday will see the frontal boundary shift to a northwest to 
southeast orientation, with warm and humid air pushing northward 
into western Pennsylvania along with a few showers and 
thunderstorms. Meanwhile, easterly flow on the cool side of the 
front will keep clouds and cooler temperatures in place for much of 
central and eastern Pennsylvania.
