Some morning clouds, and even a few light rain showers across 
Central and Western Pennsylvania this morning, gave way to mostly 
sunny skies. This was accompanied by unseasonably warm temperatures. 
Highs ranged from the lower and middle 60s in the west and north, 
into the lower 70s across the south and east.

A mild night is in store for tonight, with lows mainly in the 50s. A 
few colder spots across the north will dip into the upper 40s. While 
most areas will remain dry for the rest of the night, there is a 
good chance of showers, and maybe even an isolated thunderstorm 
across the northwest as a weak cold front dips into that portion of 
the Commonwealth.

Another warm, and generally rain-free day is tap for Friday, with 
highs in the lower to middle 70s statewide.
