It’s a good thing swimming pools around Lancaster County have just opened because the week ahead will be unseasonably warm and muggy.
And that’s not good news for area farmers, where a deficit in precipitation around the county is making it hard for newly planted crops to shoot upward.

Autumn today, winter tomorrow.
Monday should see afternoon highs of around 57 degrees, which is probably enough to clear away the remaining shreds of snow.
