It looks like it’s going to be a great start to the week after a warm and sunny holiday weekend.
The National Weather Service indicated that it was 37 degrees as of 6:54 a.m. at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport. Morning commuters will probably need to grab those sunglasses to ward off the glare from the morning sun.
That sunshine will stick around for the remainder of the day, with the high reaching about 70 degrees. Clouds will begin to accumulate tonight, with the low dropping to about 45 degrees.
Periods of rain are expected after 1 p.m. on Tuesday. An 80-percent chance of rain is predicted, and between a tenth and a quarter of an inch of rain is possible. Tuesday’s high will reach the upper 60s.
Scattered showers will carry on into Tuesday night, with the low dropping to the lower 40s. Less than a tenth of an inch of rain is possible.
There will be a chance for sprinkles on Wednesday — otherwise, partly sunny skies are expected. Wednesday’s high reach the mid 50s. Clear skies are also predicted for Wednesday night, with the low dipping to the mid 30s.
