East Central PA Forecast

Basic CMYK

Proud Sponsor of the East Central PA Forecast Region


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. 


Yesterday’s cold front breaks the heat and humidity today… above normal temps next week…

We lower the humidity behind the front on Friday for a day with a northwest wind, but still remaining very warm… and then continuing in the upper 80s to near 90°F again the weekend under mostly sunny skies. A weak/dry frontal passage will occur Saturday night, lowering temps slightly for Sunday, but not much.

The humidity will increase some over the weekend, but not at oppressive levels until we get to Monday and Tuesday of next week. Took out the chance of a thunderstorm both Monday and Tuesday, as both days look to be less than a 20% chance, but that storm cannot be ruled out with higher instability and “airmass” storms a possibility.
