TONIGHT: Mild and Humid. Lo 72. Winds NW 0-5 mph.
TUESDAY: Hot & Humid, Near Record Heat. Hi 96. Lo 72.
WEDNESDAY: Hot. Hi 96. Lo 72.
We smashed the record high in Harrisburg on Labor Day, topping out at 97 degrees! The previous record was 93 degrees set in 2015. Lows drop to around 70 tonight for what will be a relatively mild and humid evening.
We continue to heat up through Thursday when highs top out in the upper 90s. Record heat could be on the table as both Tuesday and Wednesday could reach 96°! A cold front this weekend will thankfully drop us down into the mid-80s by Saturday and low 80s by next week. That front will stall across the eastern part of the country from Thursday through next weekend and could offer not only relief from the heat but also some rain chances in the form of showers and storms. Stay tuned, we’ll know more specifics later this week. Until then, stay cool!
