TONIGHT: Mostly Cloudy, Muggy. Lo 70.
THURSDAY: Stray Showers, Humid. Hi 84.
FRIDAY: Cloudy, Stray Showers and Cooler. Hi 72.
A few storms develops Wednesday evening to provide some rainfall for roughly half of the viewing area. Highest amounts were focused across parts of York and Lancaster county where 0.5″ to 1.5″ of rain fell from the slow moving storms. The rest of tonight features mild and muggy conditions with a slim chance for a shower.
Thursday will feature muggy conditions again, but temperatures won’t be as hot. Highs will be in the mid-80s with stray showers as a front moves through. Dry air to the north will be fighting humid air to the south, so we don’t anticipate much of a rain threat on Thursday now. Dewpoints will drop from near 70° (that means humid conditions) to lower dewpoints in the mid-50s- much more comfortable! The best chance for widespread rain still comes on Friday as east flow sets up. This means a cooler and cloudy day. Rainfall amounts look light Friday with just showers for much of the day, but most backyards should at least see some rain. Highs will only be in the 70s.
At this point, most of the weekend looks dry. Saturday should be mainly pleasant with highs in the 80s under partly cloudy skies. A series of troughs swings through Sunday into Monday and that means a stray t-storm or two each afternoon. Tuesday should bring more pleasant weather and the humidity drops by then too. Next week does not look as steamy as this week has been. Relief is coming!
