90-degree heat returns Friday, humidity stays tolerable

Forecast

Hot and dry weather will set up again for much of next week across the area...

OVERNIGHT: Stray Showers End, Mostly Clear, Comfy. Lo 65.

FRIDAY: Hazy Sun, Hot! Hi 91.

SATURDAY: Mostly Cloudy, Stray PM Shower/Storm. Hi 88.

As of 11:15p, a few showers were still ongoing north of Harrisburg. These should wane as they move into Lebanon county over the next hour or two. Skies will turn mostly clear overnight with comfortable lows in the mid-60s. Friday will offer lots of sunshine which will help get us to our first 90-degree day in over a week!

Humidity will stay tolerable through the weekend, but become a bit more noticeable each day. An area of low pressure passing to our south will increase clouds for Saturday, but there won’t be much lift to get storms going locally. Aside from a stray storm Saturday and Sunday afternoon, the vast majority of the weekend will be dry with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees.

Next week will continue the heat wave with increasing humidity too. The heat will persist through nearly all of next week with highs in the 90s each afternoon. Some days temperatures will soar into the mid-90s with triple-digit heat index values. Rain chances look slim other than some stray storm chances thanks to the heat and humidity both Tuesday and Wednesday. Given the overall weather pattern moving forward, it’s going to be tough to see any meaningful rain over the next week or so.
