EVENING: Mild and muggy. Temps in the 70s
TONIGHT: Increasing clouds. Low 68.
SATURDAY: Warmer and more humid. High 88.
Tonight will be stellar for Friday night football with just a few clouds late and overnight temperatures dropping into the upper 60s. Humidity will start to creep back in and that will carry us through the holiday weekend. Saturday will feature highs in the mid to upper 80s but more clouds than sun at times should keep us from reaching 90.
A cold front approaches the area Sunday…bringing at least a low chance for pop-up storms by the afternoon but mainly north and west of Harrisburg. Most of the day will be dry though. By Sunday night and Monday, the front stalls nearby as an upper level low begins to spin up and that means our best chance for rain over the next 7 days. Labor Day certainly won’t be a washout…but plan for occasional showers throughout the day.
Depending on how slow this feature spins up, we may deal with drizzle and stubborn clouds through Tuesday and possibly early Wednesday. We’re still favoring a drying trend toward the middle and end of next week though with highs back in the mid-80s.
