Not much change in the forecast or forecast track of Hurricane Isaias. Showers will continue overnight and become steady by Tuesday morning. The heaviest rain will occur mid morning to mid afternoon, with the axis of heaviest rain along and east of I-83, where 2-4″ inches of rain may fall, most of it Tuesday morning and early afternoon. Further west toward the ridges and valleys, lighter amounts are expected, but a beneficial rain is still in the cards it seems. A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for the entire Midstate except for Mifflin and Juniata Counties. The bottom line: eastern counties have the highest chance of seeing the highest rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches. Rainfall may range from just a half inch to 2 inches west of Harrisburg. Tropical moisture exits early Tuesday evening and overnight with clearing skies and more comfortable temperatures heading into Wednesday.
Seasonably comfortable conditions will hold on through Thursday, and with a stalled front nearby, we may see additional chances for showers both Thursday and Friday. Temperatures this week will be more seasonable than recent times, with highs on average in the mid-80s instead of the 90s! Enjoy the rainfall – but if it does cause any problems on local waterways, we will be monitoring for you. Stay tuned!
