Drying out for the weekend...

EVENING: Showers ending, mostly cloudy.

TONIGHT: Mostly Cloudy, Staying Muggy. Lo 71.

FRIDAY: Clearing skies and breezy. Hi 86.

Today’s round of storm are now east of us, with only a few showers remaining. Any outdoor evening plans will have mostly cloudy skies with temperatures in the 70s. Tonight remains mostly cloudy and muggy.

Weak high pressure builds in Friday, bringing the return of dry weather. Humidity will only fall off slightly while highs remain a few degrees above average. As a weak front approaches Sunday, this may trigger spotty t-storms mainly south of Harrisburg. At this point, it appears most of the area will get by without any rain this weekend, but with the amount of heat and humidity in place, you can never completely rule out a pop-up t-storm.

Long range models are showing high pressure strengthening over the northeast next week which may lead to our hottest stretch of weather this summer. The remnants of likely Hurricane Barry may throw a wrench into this, but if we do receive any moisture it won’t be until the middle or end of next week. For now, only spotty shower or t-storm chances will exist. The pattern looks hot and mainly dry going forward. We’ll keep you posted.
