STORMY EVENING WILL LEAD TO A LESS HUMID, DRY FRIDAY
FLASH FLOODING is a concern with storms already training over the same locations. 1 to 3” already has fallen and more continues to fall.
Areas affected: Carlisle, Gettysburg, Hanover, Aspers and surrounding locations. Please move to higher ground immediately if water starts to rapidly rise. Quick reduction in visibility, as well as, quick ponding on roads and poor drainage areas very likely as storms continue to produce torrential rainfall. More storms are just west ahead of the actual cold front. Storms will be with us through the evening. You can also expect frequent cloud to ground lightning and damaging winds.
The front will not push east until after midnight, at which time, drier air slowly spills in ending the rain threat by Friday morning.
Humidity levels will fall significantly ending the week on a more comfortable note. Clouds will be slower to scour out but skies should brighten nicely through the day. Highs will be close to seasonal highs in the low 80s.
LITTLE LEAGUE WORLD SERIES
If you are heading to Williamsport to watch the local team, Red Land from York County play, you will be treated to great weather for baseball. They start at 8pm under the lights. You may need a light jacket by the end of the game. It will be less humid and feeling so much nicer then recent nights. Good luck team and have fun!
LESS HUMID AND DRY FOR THE WEEKEND
As high pressure builds in, a north-northwest breeze keeps it feeling comfortable into the start of the weekend. Highs will be seasonal in the low 80s. The high adjust further to the east over New England setting up the winds more out of the east-northeast. This will result in more clouds for Sunday. The humidity will go up slightly but shouldn’t be too much of a factor. High temperatures warm to the low 80s.
COOLING DOWN NEXT WEEK
The next cold front comes in late Monday. There is not a lot of moisture accompanying this system so only an isolated chance is expected for showers and thunderstorms. We get a short-lived boost in the temps to the mid 80s but they cool down as an upper level trough settles in over the area from Tuesday and beyond. Temperatures will run in the upper 70s to around 80 giving us a break from the summer weather.
