Pennsylvania – As we’ve had above-average temperatures for the past few months, you’re likely to not spend quite as much on heating costs this fall.

The founder and president of Accuweather, Dr. Joel Myers, says that heating costs are running only about half of what they normally are in the Northeast.

However, a brief period of cooler weather is on the way. By this Wednesday, high temperatures could be in the low 50s or even the upper 40s. Those cooler temperatures will likely last until at least Oct. 30.

Temperatures are expected to rise again in early November, meaning that once again people won’t have to spend as much on heating costs.

As for what to expect for this winter, most long-range forecasts (including the Farmer’s Almanac) say that northern states such as Pennsylvania should get ready for more precipitation than usual.
