Henri, which is now a remnant low continues to push east and away from the area this evening. A weak disturbance rotating on the back side of the storm has lead to a few storms, mainly east of Harrisburg. We’ll continue to watch these through about sunset before the activity diminishes. Widespread severe weather is not expected, but one or two storms could be strong with gusty winds the primary threat.

The main weather story this week will now turn to the heat and humidity. Highs will climb into the low to mid 90s from Tuesday through Friday, with heat indices by the end of the week potentially approaching triple digits again. Tuesday and Wednesday will be mainly dry days as a ridge of high pressure builds overhead, but some storms are expected by late-week as a front approaches from the north.

The weekend looks unsettled at this point with lots of humidity and scattered showers and storms thanks to a front that will stall nearby. Highs should drop back down into the 80s by then, but no break from the humidity is expected anytime soon.
