Tired of the Heat? Weekend Cool-Down to Sweep In

STATE COLLEGE PA – A slow-moving cold front that’s been responsible in recent days for heavy rain and flooding across Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky is headed toward Pennsylvania (at top), forecasters at AccuWeather Inc. in State College predicted Wednesday (Aug. 10, 2022). It seems likely, they said, to usher in a new local weather pattern different than the swelter to which we’ve become accustomed.

Tired of the Heat? Weekend Cooldown to Sweep In

Surprisingly cooler air is on the way, according to their predictions. Not chilly but, by Friday night (Aug. 12), September-like. Temperatures may fall (above) into the upper-60s, not the upper-90s. Think of it, AccuWeather said, as “a taste of fall, which is a little over a month away.”

AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Carl Babinski acknowledged “the first half of the week brought stifling heat and humidity to much of the Northeast. The cold front will continue to progress toward the south and east.” The cool-down, he added, should start in the Midwest and New England, then “expand southward” daily until it arrives here as the weekend starts.
