TONIGHT: Partly Cloudy, Few Showers/Storms Mainly Early, Warm & Muggy. Lo 74.

FRIDAY: Scattered Showers & Storms. Hi 91. Winds: Light Southwest.

SATURDAY: Scattered PM Storms. Hi 90. Winds: Light Southwest.

As expected, today was the hottest day of this heat wave with an official high of 95 degrees at Harrisburg. With the increase in heat and humidity also came scattered storms, some of which produced very heavy rain along with locally damaging wind gusts. Most of the activity will shut off this evening, with the only intense weather still located over southern York and southern Lancaster counties as of 6:30p. We’ll allow for a shower or two overnight, but Friday morning should start off quiet…just very warm and muggy.

Friday and Saturday still look to feature scattered t-storms, and while not everyone will get rain, those that do find themselves under slow-moving downpours could get a lot of rain in a short period of time. The atmosphere will be loaded with moisture and with very weak steering flow aloft, this is something to watch as mentioned above.

Storm chances look more spotty Sunday and Monday but will ramp back up late next Tuesday and into Wednesday as the front nears. We finally put an end to this spell of heat and humidity next Wednesday night/Thursday as drier and more seasonable air moves in.
