    Drier and warmer weather is in the offing for Harrisburg through Memorial Day.

    A dry and mostly sunny Sunday will replace the damp start to the weekend on Saturday.

    A surge of warm air will blast the region Sunday, pushing temperatures to near the 80-degree mark. Low humidity will compliment the weather.

    As Memorial Day comes around, high temperatures will top out in the mid-80s with plenty of sunshine and continued low humidity.

    Folks heading to local parades or out of town to nearby Boalsburg, which has claims to be the birthplace of Memorial Day, should expect a beautiful day for festivities.

    However, sunscreen is encouraged for anyone outside for extended periods of time.

    Shower and thunderstorm chances will return on Tuesday as the warmth holds and humidity increases.

    A reduction in the heat should come by Wednesday.
