Sunday remained mainly dry for most of us, but for a few sprinkles over the higher terrain Northwest of Harrisburg. The sun helped the temperatures soar into the low 90s for most. HIA in Middletown made it to 92 degrees – coupled with the high dewpoints, it was a steamy day. A few showers will develop Sunday evening, first over the higher elevations but eventually overspreading most of the commonwealth overnight. The slow moving cold front will stall over us Monday with multiple waves of rain riding along it.
Labor Day will be rainy. Off and on showers, some of them heavy, will be with us all day long. Guidance suggests there may be a few periods of steady rain by Monday evening, continuing through Monday night into Tuesday morning. Tuesday will be damp too with leftover showers, but the brunt of the rain will occur Monday and Monday night.
The rain will be slow to clear with showers persisting through Tuesday and potentially into Wednesday morning. We should finally start clearing out Wednesday into Thursday. Storm total rainfall looks to be 1-2 inches for most of us but a few areas can receive over 2 inches by Wednesday.
The front finally clears and the end of the week looks seasonable.
