Summer heat holds through Thursday, slim rain chances


Nearing 90° by Wednesday-Thursday...

EVENING: Clouds and Sun, Comfortable. High 78F.

TONIGHT: Increasing clouds. Low 62F.

TUESDAY: Morning Clouds, Afternoon Clearing & Warmer. High 80F.

Tuesday will start off with low clouds that will be stubborn to break, but by the afternoon the sun should make a return. This will allow temperatures to recover back to 80 degrees.

The warm up continues Wednesday as an upper level high builds overhead. Temperatures are likely to reach or potentially even exceed 90 degrees. This is not a record but over 10 degrees above the seasonal norms. A stray storm is possible north of Harrisburg late in the day Wednesday, but the high should keep things capped overall. By Thursday, the heat will continue with a slightly better chance for a shower or storm during the evening.

A big change will be felt by Friday as an east wind ushers in low-level clouds. This should hold temperatures in the mid to perhaps upper 70s. An approaching front Saturday will spark some afternoon thunderstorms, but even then rain is not a guarantee. Sunday appears to be the drier of the two days this weekend with highs a few ticks above average in the low 80s.
