TONIGHT: Partly Cloudy, Muggy, Stray Evening Shower Northwest. Lo 72. Winds: Light.

WEDNESDAY: Breezy & Much Less Humid. Hi 84. Winds: NW 10-20 mph.

What a scorcher today! We made it to 92 degrees, only 5 degrees away from a record high. With plenty of humidity in the air, tonight will be very warm with temperatures only dropping into the 80s this evening and mid-70s overnight. There can be a stray shower over parts of Mifflin or Juniata counties this evening as a line of storms passes by to our northwest, but most areas will stay dry.

Our best (and likely only) chance for rain this week will come tomorrow…and with some luck, it could bring parts of the area a healthy dose of rain. An incoming cold front combined with plenty of heat and humidity will lead to scattered storms by the afternoon. Guidance as a whole has been quite bullish on rain potential, with locally heavy rainfall (1″+) possible where storms train over the same areas. Widespread severe weather is not expected, but locally strong wind gusts are possible. The main time-frame for storms looks to be from mid-afternoon through early evening before drier air moves in Tuesday night.

Much more comfortable air moves in for mid to late week as highs drop into the low to mid-80s and overnight lows finally dip back to near 60°. With Canadian high pressure sitting on top of us, mostly sunny skies can be expected through at least the start of next weekend. The high shifts east by Saturday, allowing humidity to surge back north along with at least a stray storm by Sunday. Right now, it does appear we’ll have storms to dodge for Labor Day, although it certainly won’t be a washout.
