Monday is the first day of deer hunting season in Pennsylvania and will mark a transition toward more unsettled weather for the commonwealth and other states in the Northeast.

About three-quarters of a million hunters will be roaming the woods of the Keystone State.

While fresh snow makes for easy tracking, there will not be any snow on the ground in Pennsylvania for the first day of the season.

With a slow-moving storm brewing near Tennessee holding up cold air, temperatures over Pennsylvania will be quite mild, with highs Monday will in the 50s in the north to the middle 60s in the southeast.

There will be a couple of showers in the central counties of the Keystone State on Monday. However, drenching rain will affect some of the northwestern counties. Rain could hold off all day in the southeastern counties.

Winds on Monday are tricky and will depend on what part of the state you are in and the time of the day. In most cases Monday, winds will start the day light and variable. During the afternoon, most areas will have southeast winds kicking up to 10 to 20 mph or higher.

Tuesday could bring more substantial unsettled weather with areas of drenching rain. That rain could turn to wet snow later in the day in some of the western counties of the commonwealth. It is possible there is some snow on the ground in these areas by Wednesday as a result.
