HOT & STICKY: A third day of 90s is in store for the Lower Susquehanna River Valley Thursday, making it an official heat wave. After a muggy and warm start with an isolated shower or two leftover, sunshine breaks out. This quickly boosts temperatures, with highs in the lower to middle 90s. A stray thunderstorm or two is possible later during the day, but most should stay dry. More thunderstorms are expected during the evening as a cold front tries to cross through the region. Overnight lows are warm and soupy in the 70s.
WEEKEND OUTLOOK: The heat and humidity continue into the first half of the weekend. Friday highs are in the lower 90s, and then in the lower to middle 90s on Saturday. A few showers or a thunderstorm is possible Friday, but expect plenty of dry time. There is also the chance for a few thunderstorms later during the day on Saturday with the next system. Cooler and less humid air works in on Sunday. It’s sunny, with temperatures still above seasonable averages, in the middle 80s.
NEXT WEEK NOT AS HOT: Plenty of sunshine remains for early next week. The humidity is back to comfortable levels Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures still run a bit above seasonable averages for this time of year. Expect afternoon high temperatures in the lower to middle 80s. Temperatures warm back up through the middle of the week, with highs in the upper 80s. A shower or thunderstorm is possible.
Have a great Thursday!
