The extreme east and southeast are still cloudy this evening. These 
clouds will linger into late evening across eastern Pennsylvania, 
with mainly clear skies to the west. The clouds over the east will 
move out after midnight. 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 these will dissipate rapidly. An approaching cold front 
will push clouds along with scattered showers and thunderstorms into 
western Pennsylvania late in the day. High temperatures will range 
from the low 70s in the Poconos to the low 80s across much of 
western and central Pennsylvania.
