When the sun goes down for the next five or six days, it’s going to get chilly.
The AccuWeather forecast shows sunny skies and low humidity through Wednesday. Then clouds and the chance of showers on the cusp of October and the 1st, which is Friday.
The forecast shows no significant rain, so the rainfall Thursday might have been the last for September.
Officially at Reading Regional Airport, the preliminary total of 1.19 inches of rain was the final total as well for Thursday. The monthly total was 8.18 inches, fueled by the Ida deluge of 4.95 on the 1st.
