A dry, northwest breeze provided a much less humid Wednesday with a seasonable high of 83 degrees. It feels much cooler, but we are actually closer to our average high and low temperatures for this time of year. This month is expected to the second hottest August on record.
Don’t get used to the comfortable air though as warmer temperatures and slightly higher humidity will surge back into Central PA this weekend. Highs will be in the upper 80s to near 90° both Saturday and Sunday. While Saturday looks dry, there might be a few t-storms that develop Sunday afternoon. It still looks like we’ll see a better chance for t-storms on Labor Day Monday, although it certainly won’t be a washout. Overall, rain chances continue to look limited. Long-range models keep the region hot through early September.
