Turning less humid, staying mainly dry through Friday

Top Stories

Closing in on the hottest July ever...

THIS EVENING: Partly Cloudy, A Stray Shower. Temperature Falling To 80 By 10p.

TONIGHT: Mostly Clear, Muggy. Lo 70.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly Sunny & Hot. Hi 92.

Still watching for a stray shower early this evening, but most places will stay dry as a weak front limps through. Skies should gradually clear tonight, with overnight lows dropping into the upper 60s to low 70s.

The humidity will drop by Wednesday and beyond, but highs will hold close to 90° each day. Drier air will win out for most of the remainder of the week, but recent guidance suggests an area of low pressure could spin up over the Mid-Atlantic early Friday. At this time, most of the moisture appears to miss Central PA to the south, but we’ll keep watching trends to see if any showers move north.

The weekend will continue to be hot and a tad more humid. Saturday may actually have highs just shy of 90°, while Sunday will have the next best chance for storms. There are indications that a broad trough will setup over the northeast early next week, which could mean increased chances for rain in our area. No matter what, this July will likely end up as the hottest month ever recorded in Harrisburg weather history. Stay cool and stay safe!
