ONE MORE FAIR DAY IS IN STORE FOR THE COMMONWEALTH.

A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL LIFT OUT OF THE MID MISSISSIPPI VALLEY
INTO THE GREAT LAKES TODAY AND TONIGHT. THIS WILL BRING A WARM
FRONT AND THEN A COLD FRONT INTO THE STATE IN QUICK SUCCESSION ON
MONDAY.

HOWEVER...TODAY WILL STAY DRY AND PARTLY SUNNY FOR THE BULK OF THE
DAY. HIGHS SHOULD BE IN THE 60S FOR ALL BUT THE HIGHEST ELEVATIONS
IN THE LAURELS AND POCONOS. 

RAIN WILL MOVE INTO THE WESTERN PART OF THE STATE LATE THIS
AFTERNOON AND EARLY THIS EVENING...AND SPREAD TO THE COVER ALL OF
THE STATE DURING THE OVERNIGHT. LOWS WILL BE IN THE 40S IN THE
MOUNTAINS AND LOW TO MID 50S IN THE SOUTH AND WEST.

AFTER A BRIEF BREAK FROM THE RAIN DURING MONDAY MORNING IN THE
WEST AND IN THE AFTERNOON IN THE EAST...THUNDERSTORMS WILL FLARE
UP IN THE WEST AND PUSH TO THE EAST. SOME OF THESE STORMS COULD
GENERATE STRONG WIND GUSTS. THE REST OF THE WEEK LOOKS VERY MUCH
COLDER AND UNSETTLED.
