Drier air is on the way
As of 5 AM, dew point temperatures have fallen over the north and mountains into the upper 40s to low 50s, and that wave of refreshment is on track to continue to the southeast through the day. Most of the state feels the drier air by early afternoon. It appears to be late afternoon for relief to arrive in southern most York County.
With the increase of the breeze from the north / northwest, the down sloping wind direction keeps southwestern areas on the warm end of temperatures, with far northwestern areas of The County the coolest.
With a mainly clear sky, temperatures fall into the 40s and 50s Friday night. Estcourt Station in the far northwestern tip of The County may see its temperature dip into the 30s.
Saturday sees an increase in warm air aloft which adds clouds to the middle and high levels of the atmosphere. Generally, a mix of sun and clouds can be expected with light wind, with below normal temperatures.
Saturday night appears partly cloudy with overnight lows in the 50s.
A warm front works into the region for Sunday, which may bring some scattered shower activity to the north and mountains. The cloud cover keeps western, eastern and northern areas in the mid-60s for highs. Sunnier southern areas are expected to reach the low 70s.
Next chance for severe weather is Monday as a cold front works into the region. This is timing dependent. Temperatures and humidity appear on track to climb back up to uncomfortable levels. Drier air sweeps back into the region in the wake of the frontal passage on Tuesday.
