TODAY: Clearing Skies, Warm and Humid. Showers Re-develop West to East after 6 PM. Hi 75. Winds: S 5-15 mph.
TONIGHT: Scattered Showers. Lo 60.
SATURDAY: Partly Cloudy, Stray Showers. Hi 78.
SUNDAY: Sunny & Pleasant. Hi 80.
A line of gusty showers and storms prompted a few severe storm warnings and even a tornado warning after 12:30 PM for Cumberland and Perry Counties. Now that line is far to the east of the Midstate. All watches and warnings have been allowed to expire or have canceled. Periods of sunshine will break back out and temperatures should rebound into the 70s. After 6-7 PM we do expect another round of showers and some thunderstorms, but these storms should be as strong as this afternoon’s. It will stay humid overnight with a few lingering showers into Saturday morning.
There could still be a stray shower or two on Saturday, but it now appears most of the day should be dry. And that means most of the holiday weekend should be dry. Sunday looks spectacular with lots of sunshine and highs around 80°. Monday will kick start a heat wave that will last through Wednesday. Monday through next Wednesday should be sunny, hot, and humid. It will also be dry! The unofficial start of summer weekend will certainly feel like it come Memorial Day. Enjoy it, everybody!
