TONIGHT: A Stray Passing Shower or Storm (Not a High Chance of Rain), Mild. Low 65.
MONDAY: Cloudy & Cooler, Scattered Showers Mainly West of Harrisburg. Hi 72. Winds: SE 5-10 mph.
TUESDAY: Clearing and Seasonable. Hi 80.
Today’s official hit 93°, one degree shy of the record high for the day! Dry air has won out in this weather pattern. The dry air helped to bring temperatures up to near record levels with all of this sunshine. It is also squashing shower and storm chances. There may be passing shower or storm, but the chances are low this evening and overnight.
Temperatures will drop into the low 60s tonight behind the front, which is still warmer than normal. However, a southeast wind develops for Monday and that will keep us cloudy for most of the day. Some scattered showers can be expected mainly west of the Susquehanna River as weak waves ride along the front which by then will be stalled over western PA. Highs will only make it into the low 70s locally which will be a big change from today.
We finally clear out Tuesday as temperatures turn more seasonable. By Wednesday, another cold front will approach. Ahead of it, temperatures will again soar into the low 90s with some storms expected by the afternoon. Thursday looks dry and not as hot, and the cooling trend then continues into the start of next weekend as some more widespread showers could be on the table by Saturday.
