THIS AFTERNOON/EVENING: More Humid, Stray Shower Or T-Storm. Hi 88.
TONIGHT: Passing Shower Or T-Storm. Lo 68.
FRIDAY: Mostly Sunny, Breezy, & Less Humid. Hi 80. Winds: W 10-15 mph. Gusts to 25 mph.
Another tornado was confirmed today by the National Weather Service in York County from way back on August 7th. The tornado was a brief EF-1 in Blackrock, just north of the state line. That makes now a total of 3 tornadoes confirmed on August 7th with two in York County and one in Lancaster County.
We may see a few showers and storms this evening and overnight. Hopefully we don’t see a repeat of tornadic storms with this front. There is the possibility that storms maintain their strength has they head east of the mountains tonight and perhaps gain a little spin due to our local southerly winds. The threat is very low, however. A shower or two could linger tonight before the skies clear early Friday morning. Lows will be in the upper 60s.
The cold front tonight will provide a noticeable drop in humidity for Friday and into the weekend. It doesn’t get much better than this for a weekend in mid-August. Expect sunny skies, comfortable weather, and lovely conditions for outdoor plans. Saturday morning’s lows will likely fall into the 50s for many locations! The heat builds back in by Sunday, but the humidity stays low. Next week, the 90s return to start the week with increasing humidity. After the small threat of rain today, the next week looks dry. We will continue to monitor that situation too in case any (more pronounced) drought concerns return.
