Top Stories

Another potential heatwave in the extended forecast...

TONIGHT: Mostly Cloudy, Stray Showers, Muggy. Lo 70.

FRIDAY: Scattered Showers & T-Storms, Humid. Hi 85.

SATURDAY: Partly Sunny, Humid, Stray PM Storm, Hi 90.

The strong storms from earlier have dissipated and aside from a few stray showers, tonight looks mainly quiet. It will remain muggy with overnight lows only expected to fall around 70.

The unsettled pattern continues into Friday with a few showers likely ongoing early in the day, much like today! Throughout the afternoon, additional showers and a few storms will pop mainly east of the Susquehanna River. Much like today and yesterday, the nature of these downpours will be widely scattered, so many hours will be dry. Highs will again reach the mid 80s.

Saturday continues to look mainly dry but even Saturday afternoon, a stray storm may develop over areas east of Harrisburg. We continue with the theme of spotty showers or storms into early next week as a front remains stalled nearby. As another cold front approaches from the north next Tuesday and Wednesday, thunderstorm chances will increase before dry air finally builds in by next Thursday. A heat wave looks to be coming early next week as highs likely reach the low to mid 90s starting Sunday.
