TONIGHT: Periods Of Rain, Heavy At Times. Lo 70. Winds: Light East.

TUESDAY: Early AM Rain, Occasional PM Showers. Hi 78. Winds: Light East.

WEDNESDAY: Cloudy, Patchy Drizzle. Hi 72. Winds: Light East.

Steady rain continues in spots this evening as more showers and downpours lift in from the south. Areas north and west of Harrisburg saw rain first this morning, and now more of us are cashing in on much needed rain. As an area of low pressure develops along the stalled front, expect additional rounds of rain through tonight, which could be heavy at times. Steady rain will continue through at least 6 or 7a…be aware of this if heading out early. Storm total rain through tomorrow morning will be 1-3″ for most areas. Flooding concerns aren’t great, but where training cells set up, there can be isolated issues…but for most of us, it’s just beneficial rain!

Steady rain will taper to a few showers by late Tuesday morning and afternoon. There will be more dry periods and with some luck we may even see the sun peak out briefly. However, another round of east flow for Wednesday means more low clouds and patchy drizzle. With the stubborn clouds, highs will struggle to get out of the low 70s, something that we haven’t done since early June!

We finally return to more seasonable conditions Thursday as the front pulls away. Dry weather will carry us through the start of the weekend with highs back in the low 80s. The next slow-moving area of low pressure will head our way early next week, but it may take until Monday or Tuesday for us to see any showers.
