The clouds are stubborn initially during the morning, but they gradually break later, leaving partly sunny skies during the afternoon.

Expect lows in the middle 60s to lower 70s. This is near, if not slightly above, average highs for this time of year! Wednesday continues the warmth and the high humidity levels. Record heat is very likely for Central PA. Expect afternoon temperatures in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees! The hot pattern finally shows some signs of breaking down Wednesday ngiht into Thursday. The next cold front drops down from the north. This brings the chance for showers, and perhaps a few thunderstorms depending on where the front ends up. It’s still warm and stuffy, with temperatures falling back into the 70s—perhaps cooler if the front dips far enough to the south!
