Very warm this weekend, low humidity continues for Friday

Forecast

A passing shower or storm this weekend, but chances are low...

EVENING: Mostly Sunny, Warm. Hi 87.

TONIGHT: Partly Cloudy. Lo 55.

FRIDAY: Mostly Sunny, Very Warm. Hi 89.

SATURDAY: Afternoon Passing Clouds, Showers/Storms North of Midstate. Hi 89.

SUNDAY: Mostly Sunny, Stray PM Storms. Hi 90.

There is a weak front to our east that will lead to a drop in humidity/moisture this evening, but that is the only change weather-wise for the next several days. We will stay dry this evening and overnight. The drier air will contribute to a slightly cooler night with lows in the lower to middle 50s.

We are reaching the peak of the heat and even a little humidity heading into the weekend. Tomorrow will feel similar to today with highs in the upper 80s and plenty of sunshine, unfortunately meaning no rain in sight.

There will be a front that drops closer to the Midstate this weekend, but even then rain chances are very small. Saturday should stay dry and hot with highs close to 90°. The highest chances for storms will be north of our region over northern PA and New York. Sunday this slow-moving front and cooler air will begin to move into the Midstate meaning the chances for a few afternoon showers/storms should rise. Highs likely hit 90° if not slightly above for Sunday afternoon.

Cooler and drier air does arrive for Monday and Tuesday dropping high temperatures to the upper 70s and low 80s. Heat will recover quickly for the eastern US, and by Wednesday of next week we could hit 90° before the next wave of cooler air arrives. In general, we do not see a lot of rain chances heading through next week.
