Harrisburg: Summerlike Warmth to Slip Away at Midweek

The summerlike warmth basking Harrisburg will slip away by midweek as cooler air makes a comeback.

Another very warm day will unfold on Tuesday ahead of an approaching backdoor cold front, which is a front that advances from the northeast.

Temperatures will rise into the middle and upper 80s, falling just short of Tuesday's record high of 90 F from 1944. It will remain sticky, setting the stage for the front to trigger showers and thunderstorms.

In the wake of the front, shorts and sunglasses will likely be replaced with spring jackets and umbrellas on Wednesday.

Wednesday is shaping up to be a damp and cooler day with a few spotty showers. Temperatures will still reach the middle 70s.

A slight rebound in temperature will occur Thursday ahead of a front from the Midwest heightening concerns for late-week heavy rain.

The front, combined with embedded tropical moisture, will bring the risk of flooding downpours on Friday.

Fresh cool air following the front and a slow-moving storm system set to take shape over the Northeast or just offshore will prevent a repeat of the summerlike warmth next weekend or early the following week.
