TONIGHT: Cloudy, Passing Shower Late. Lo 63.
SATURDAY: Scattered Showers & T-Storms. Hi 72.
SUNDAY: Partly Sunny, Showers Late. Hi 76.
What a day! It felt like mid-summer out there with temperatures that neared 90 degrees in spots. Harrisburg’s official high was 86, not a record – but still abnormally warm for this time of year. It will be remarkably mild tonight with temperatures only dropping into the 60s. It will be cloudy, but mainly dry, with perhaps a shower or two late.
Saturday will finally offer the chance for much needed showers and storms. A few showers will be around during the morning, but the best chance for storms to develop will come by mid-day and continuing through the afternoon. Higher moisture from the south combined with weak steering could result in slow-moving downpours. Not everyone will get heavy rain, but pockets of locally heavier amounts are possible, so make sure to keep an eye to the sky and keep the ABC27 weather app handy. Any daytime storms could wind down by sunset.
It now appears most of Sunday will stay dry with a cold front not arriving until Sunday night into early Monday morning. Cooler air arrives for the first few days of next week. It will be breezy, cloudy, and cool with a warm-up again on tap by the end of next week. Highs by next Friday will bounce back into the low 80s.
