EVENING: Clouds increase, mild. Temps falling into the 70s.

TONIGHT: Scattered showers. Bouts of heavier rain for York, Lancaster and Lebanon counties. Low 67.

WEDNESDAY: Early morning showers, sunny by noon. Less humid by evening. High 77.

Clouds are increasing this evening as a cold front brings showers into the Midstate overnight. I expect two waves of showers to develop. The first wave will produce rain mainly east of Harrisburg. Lancaster, Lebanon and York counties have the greatest chance of rain from the first wave. The second wave arrives early Wednesday morning, mainly in the form of scattered showers. Some areas west of Harrisburg may receive less than a tenth of an inch of rain, while areas east of Harrisburg could add up to a half inch, possibly over an inch of rain for isolated areas.

Tomorrow morning starts off cloudy with some leftover showers. By noon, the front begins to exit and skies will clear for the afternoon as dry air finally arrives. Wednesday evening will feel much more comfortable with lower humidity. Highs tomorrow will be in the upper 70s and tomorrow night will be much more refreshing.

Thursday, Friday, and the weekend look fantastic with highs in the 70s, lows in the 50s, and plenty of sunshine to help make outdoor plans pleasant for the end of the week. Hurricane Lee is forecast to remain offshore as it tracks into the northern Atlantic over the weekend. Even though it will be to our east, there could still be breezy conditions on Friday and Saturday with northerly wind speeds between 5-10mph. The brunt of the storm could affect New England through the weekend.
