EVENING: Hot and humid. Temps in the upper 80s.

TONIGHT: Very warm and humid. Low 72.

THURSDAY: Hot and humid with hit-or-miss showers and thunderstorms. High 92.

Wednesday’s high of 95 degrees was only 1 degree shy of typing the record daily high. We remain very warm overnight with temperatures stuck in the 70s which is 10-15 degrees warmer than average.

Tomorrow will also reach the low 90s before there will be an increasing chance for showers and storms heading into the weekend. Some storms on our Thursday may be gusty as they pass through- a few severe thunderstorm warnings can not be ruled out. Rain has been limited for much of Central PA in August and early September, so any rain is certainly welcome to many. Storm chances will be hit-or-miss on Thursday and Friday, with slightly better chances for showers and storms on Saturday and Sunday. The weekend is not going to be a washout, but passing storms will be something we’ll need to watch if any outdoor plans are scheduled. Next week will begin unsettled too before some lower humidity and drier weather returns after Wednesday. Stay tuned!
