Unseasonably warm, humid weekend in Lancaster; remnants of Hurricane Nate arriving Monday


A weak cold front will approach New England from the west and that means there will be a slight chance for a shower, perhaps even a thunderstorm in the late afternoon or evening. A warm front just to our north over the southern tier of NY early Saturday morning will continue to lift north today, keeping our area squarely in the warm sector for yet another day.

Additional rain chances look likely Tuesday and Wednesday as a cold front swings into town.

Saturday: A 40 percent chance of showers.

There will be no direct local impacts for Jacksonville, Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia though deep tropical moisture to the east of Nate will result in some heavy bands of rain & storms, especially Sunday.

Sunday Night: Partly cloudy - low around 59. There will also be a mix of sunshine and clouds with warm temperatures. The increased clouds coupled with moist southerly winds will make for a rather warm and muggy Saturday night, with relatively mild lows in the mid to upper 60s. The same front that passed the region Thursday will head back north as a warm front this weekend. Mostly cloudy - high near 80. Expect highs in the low 70s all of those days.

Friday: Showers with highs in the upper 60s.

7-Day Forecast: An unstable weather pattern with stick with us for the next few days as temperatures will continue to remain in the low 80's. The National Hurricane Center has the track for Nate shifting slightly away from southwest Louisiana, making our forecast better.

Mostly clear, with a low around 38.

By Monday, the high will be near 76 as remnants from Hurricane Nate move through the Lancaster area. "CT could see up to 1-2" of rain if all the ingredients come together. As that high slides to our north, it will push down cooler air, so we'll get highs in the mid 70s on Wednesday.
