Tracking Memorial Day showers
TRACKING SHOWERS: Tonight, we’ll have some scattered showers. If you live to the south or east of Harrisburg–we’re talking Adams, York, Lancaster, Dauphin, and Lebanon Counties–you’ll get widespread scattered showers and some pockets of heavy rain. The rain ends around daybreak. So, we’ll have most of the morning dry. While we start the afternoon dry, we don’t stay that way. The breaks of sun with help scattered showers and thunderstorms fire off. Look for them to pass in the late afternoon and evening. Don’t change your outdoor plans. You’ll have dry weather for most of the afternoon. Just be prepared for a thunderstorm with heavy rain or some showers for 30 minutes. Then, you’ll get the dry weather back.
LESS HUMID: The rain on Monday ends with the crossing a cold front. The cold front will bring less humid air. Enjoy a break from the humidity on Tuesday and Wednesday. Then, we turn more humid Thursday afternoon.
SUNNY MIDWEEK: Enjoy partly sunny skies on Tuesday and mostly sunny skies on Wednesday. Look for highs in the low 80s. We start Thursday with sunny skies. On Thursday afternoon, clouds quickly increase across the sky. We’ll get highs in the mid 80s as warmer air comes up from the south.
SHOWERS NEXT WEEKEND: Showers will sweep over us Friday with another cold front. Cooler air behind the front brings us highs in the upper 70s on Saturday. We’ll also have partly sunny skies on Saturday. Right now, we got a good shot at partly sunny skies on Sunday. While one model wants to bring in rain on Sunday, the others don’t bring the rain in until next Monday. MaryEllen and Andrea will track this through the week and keep you updated.
