The National Weather Service indicated that it was 68 degrees at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport as of 8:54 a.m. Some light drizzle and mist dampened the morning commute, and cloudy skies made it look like a particularly ominous morning.

Today’s high will reach about 71 degrees. That chance for isolated showers will carry on up until midnight tonight — after 1 a.m., patchy drizzle is expected. Tonight’s low will drop to about 52 degrees.
Patchy drizzle will greet morning commuters on Thursday between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. — otherwise, mostly cloudy skies are expected. The high will be in the upper 60s. Mostly cloudy skies will stick around into Thursday night, along with a chance of showers after 1 a.m. The low will drop to about 50 degrees.
That chance of showers will carry on into Friday after 2 p.m., but sunny skies are expected to return. The high will be near 71 degrees. That chance of rain will remain into Friday night before 8 p.m., with a low in the lower 50s.
