THIS EVENING: Break in the Rain, Mild and Humid. Temperatures in the Low 70s.

TONIGHT: Scattered Showers & Storms. Lo 70.

MONDAY: Scattered Showers & PM Storms. Hi 82. Winds: Light.

A period of rain this afternoon created some heavy rain for areas west of Harrisburg including McConnellsburg and Newville where some brief flash flooding was reported too. Now for this evening we are in a relative lull in the rain locally, but more showers and storms are developing to the west and southwest. These areas of rain are likely to move in tonight.

As a warm front moves through the region tonight, we expect a better chance for showers and storms. Severe weather is not expected, but heavier downpours are possible. Even into early Monday morning, we can’t rule out some storms as the warm front stalls over the area. Another round of scattered showers and storms is expected for the afternoon as the cold front swings through. Tonight and Monday won’t be washouts, but it is our best chance to cash in on rain this week. Average rainfall looks to be a quarter to a half inch.

A stray shower is possible Tuesday afternoon as the main trough swings through. Otherwise, the rest of the week is looking fairly quiet. There are still signs of some moisture sneaking in from the south for the end of the week, but it still doesn’t look like we’ll have much lift to get things going. It will be heating up though with highs pushing into the upper 80s to near 90 degrees by Thursday. Just a reminder that it’s still summer!
