WILKES-BARRE — After the record for coldest high temperature was broken on Thursday, some spring-like relief expected this weekend.
WNEP meteorologist Tom Clark said temperatures dropped to 12 degrees on Friday morning, just shy of the record low of 11 degrees set in 1993. Temperatures were in the mid 40s throughout the day on Friday, which Clark said was on par with the average temperature for the year.
Clark said the area will see a warm-up today with highs in the 40s that will be accompanied by a breeze. The relatively toasty temps will be short-lived, as Clark said the highs for Sunday will only climb into the 20s. He predicted that Sunday’s high would be at least 15 degrees colder than Saturday’s.
There is a possibility that the Wyoming Valley could see some snow Sunday night into Monday morning, but it looks like the impact will be negligible if it does happen.
“Right now, the model guidance is suggesting that we may miss it or miss most of it on Monday,” Clark said.
