Mike Linden's Forecast | Soggy end to the work week leads to chilly weekend temps
Following a string of beautifully sunny and calm November days we head into Friday with overcast skies and a whole bunch of rain.
Keep in mind, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre is about 7" of rain off from tying the all-time precipitation record of 60" set in 2011, so, any rain we get from this point moving forward gets the region 'that' much closer to history.
Overnight and into Friday, rain showers begin to push back into the region around noon. Most of the rain early on looks to be light but the heaviest of it pushes into the region into the mid to late afternoon. Daytime highs will also be pushed back into the low 40s as there won't be much sunshine to go around. We're looking at about an inch or so of new rainfall throughout the day on Friday as the rain begins to taper off later Friday evening.
While the weekend looks calmer as the rain leaves us just in time, the cooler air behind the wet weather won't make for a beautifully warm weekend. Daytime highs for both Saturday and Sunday could struggle to break the upper 30s in some upper elevation spots. It's certainly starting to feel a little bit more like Winter by the day...
If you're heading out to any Veterans Day events keep that extra layer handy!
