TODAY: Sunny & Breezy. Hi 75. Winds: N 10-15 mph. Gusts to 25 mph.
TONIGHT: Mostly Clear, Comfy. Lo 57. Winds: N 5-10 mph.
THURSDAY: Partly Cloudy, Pleasant. Hi 75. Winds: NW 5-10 mph.
Lots of sun, low humidity and a steady northwest breeze is exactly what we need after 4 to 8 inches of rain that fell from the remnants of Ida on Wednesday.
Most of the local streams are cresting now, or will be this evening. The Juniata River near Newport crested just below flood stage and will begin to recede. The Susquehanna River at Harrisburg will be cresting tonight near 14 feet, which is also below flood stage.
High pressure will provide a stellar start to the Labor Day weekend with more sunshine and low humidity for Friday and Saturday. There will be a front on Sunday that could provide a few showers in the morning, otherwise the second half of Sunday will just feature mostly cloudy skies. We are back to pleasant conditions for Monday with a northwest breeze and lower humidity. Now that our 4th hottest meteorological summer on record is behind us, hopefully we can enjoy some late summer weather for a bit.
