Pleasant 3-day stretch ahead, humidity returns by Sunday

Forecast

Another hot stretch is looming for next week...

TONIGHT: Mostly Clear, Comfy. Lo 63.

FRIDAY: Partly Cloudy, Pleasant. Hi 85.

SATURDAY: Passing Clouds, Seasonable. Hi 86.

What a July day Thursday turned out to be! A cooler northwesterly flow with lower humidity made for a delightful summer day. Highs barely hit 80°, and with dewpoints in the low 50s (meaning low humidity) the air was refreshing. The amount of smoke in the air was reduced as well, leading to more clear blue skies. With the drier air in place temperatures will drop to the low 60s on average, and plenty of readings in the mid-50s for the cooler valley locations.

More comfortable weather is in store for tomorrow. A few more clouds will be around as a weak front arrives from the north. Highs will be in the low to mid-80s with dry conditions. A quick cloud burst from the taller clouds is possible, but any isolated shower will be very brief.

Saturday continues to look pretty nice at this point, just a tad warmer. The humidity will increase this weekend, however, especially Sunday which is when some t-storms also return. A front may linger close by to keep storm chances going into next Monday too. It does appear next week will be hotter and more humid, so enjoy the break from the real hot stuff in the coming days! We could have a stretch of more 90° heat looming.

The York State Fair kicks off tomorrow and should have some pleasant weather for the opening two days. While the heat and humidity do return next week, it won’t be quite as tropical as some of the weeks we have had this July. We’ll keep you posted on the fair forecast daily heading into next week as you make your plans. Check back often!
