East Central PA Forecast

Basic CMYK

Our east central PA forecast region includes Allentown, Hamburg, Reading, Lebanon, Harrisburg, Pottsville & surrounding areas. Forecasts are updated daily M-F and Saturday that covers both weekend days – not Sunday.


Unsettled conditions for several days this week, possibly parts of the Memorial Day holiday weekend…

A cold front will slowly move through the region today, and cloudy skies this morning with occasional light rain showers will be around from time to time. Most of the shower activity will be done and over with by early in the afternoon. After that point, it remains mostly cloudy with temperatures reaching the middle to upper 60s today.

Partly to mostly cloudy on Tuesday with temperatures in the lower 70s. Clouds will increase later in the day, and then more showers arrive in the evening and continues into Wednesday morning with low pressure moving SE of the region. A 2nd area of low pressure moving though the eastern Great Lakes will bring more showers late Wednesday night and most of Thursday, before beginning to clear out Thursday night. Friday looks like the pick of the week, with partly cloudy skies returning. Although the forecast graphic looks ominous with showers late Saturday, Saturday night, and Sunday, this is right now erring on the side of caution given the holiday weekend approaching, and may not be as bad as indicated. A warm front will push through the region on Saturday night and Sunday, accompanied by showers; the extent of those showers are not clear at the moment. We will expect the worst as shown and hope for the best as we iron out those details in future daily updates.
