Mainly cloudy through the end of week, but not much rainfall...

A backdoor cold front influence on Thursday will likely keep temperatures stuck in the low to mid 50s in eastern areas, and middle 60s in parts of Central PA toward the Harrisburg area. There still could be some isolated showers around, and favoring the morning hours for that activity. A mostly cloudy sky follows overnight, with lows dropping back into the middle 40s.

An in-between day on Friday with temperatures recovering a bit to near 60° but with overcast skies, and still a stray shower cannot be entirely ruled out, mainly later in the day. A cold front on the lead of a trough will follow Friday night with a few scattered light rain showers possible. Morning clouds to start Saturday, then partial clearing Saturday afternoon and turning breezy as that front clears, then turning cooler as a trough settles in over the remainder of the weekend. Dry conditions are expected to begin the new work week with  moderating temperatures well into the 60s. Another cold front crosses the region Tuesday night with showers, then early clouds Wednesday gives way to partial clearing in the afternoon.
