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 

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.

Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today

Killer frosts were reported in the Deep South. The frost was quite severe
around Huntsville AL, and highlighted a backward spring in the South that
year. (David Ludlum)
An unusually strong occluded front swept out of the Gulf of Alaska and
produced the first April thunderstorm of record at Fairbanks. Pea size hail
fell northeast of Fairbanks from thunderstorms whose tops were less than
8000 feet. (The Weather Channel)
Severe thunderstorms associated with an intense cyclone spawned a total of
forty-seven tornadoes in two days from Louisiana to Upper Michigan. The
tornadoes killed 16 persons and injured 259 others. (Storm Data)
