While only one tornado warning was issued locally, many storms formed today that contained some broad rotation. Some pockets of wind damage with trees damaged were reported, but for the most part the bigger impact was heavy rain. A swath of heavy rain from Carlisle north into eastern Perry and northwest Dauphin Counties dumped up to 5-7 inches of rain. In addition, another heavy swath of rain from York to Lancaster along route 30 put down up to 5 inches of rain. This flooding rain along Route 30 did lead to some water rescues.

For the rest of tonight, high waters will recede and it will be drier in general through tomorrow. All active severe weather and flood warnings have been canceled or allowed to expire.

The remnant low exits Thursday, which means mainly dry weather albeit still mostly cloudy. For the weekend, we return to typical late summer weather with high humidity, afternoon temperatures nearing 90 degrees and a daily chance for a pop up shower or storm. The start of next week looks mainly dry, but the humidity is going nowhere anytime soon.
