We woke up to a bitterly cold Groundhog Day! Most of our communities started out in the low to mid 20s. The River City dipped down to a morning low of 27° under mainly cloudy skies. The mercury is expected to climb a bit higher later today. Tuesday's anticipated peak temperature of 38° with thick cloud cover and breezy conditions. Expect gusts to reach the mid 20s, which will make it feel more like the upper 20s and lower 30s.
Even though the morning weather conditions in Punxsutawney, PA was filled with snow showers and plenty of cloud cover, Punxsutawney Phil still happened to see his shadow... and you know what that means?! Six more weeks of winter! We all know he is not a certified meteorlogist, but we will be feeling every bit of winter by the end of the week!
Tomorrow we'll be waking up to lows in the 20s with gradual clearing. Wednesday afternoon will probably be the pick of the week. We'll see plenty of sunshine and highs in the low to mid 40s. Thursday will bring about rain chances and highs near 52°, but the mild weather won't last into the weekend ahead. Be prepared for some of the coldest temperatures we've seen in two years.
