Some showers fell this morning but we quickly cleared out this afternoon as a warm front swept through the region. It’s warmer and a bit muggy out there now with temperatures in the mid 80s as of early evening. Overnight temperatures will slowly fall into the mid to upper 60s under partly cloudy skies.
A cold front approaches from the north Wednesday, bringing our best chance for rain this week. Showers and storms are expected after 2p, but latest trends suggest the heaviest storms could stay just west of the area as we remain stuck under a light east flow locally. We’ll keep watching but right now widespread severe weather is not expected, and as it stands, most storms will stay well west of Harrisburg. Any showers with this round should exit by early evening, although an incoming shortwave will bring us some more showers Thursday morning.
We slowly clear out Thursday afternoon with a bit less humidity. Temperatures stay a few degrees above normal though into the weekend as it turns muggy again. Highs will approach 90° by Sunday with a few isolated late-day t-storms possible. A better chance for storms will come next Monday with another cold front passing through, although latest timing suggests most rain will be limited to the morning hours.
Overall, expect more seasonable weather going forward as we turn warmer and more humid. No extreme heat is expected anytime soon as the hottest air stays over the central part of the country. In a nutshell, typical summer weather for Central PA is here to stay.
