Much of the time this week will be free of rain and will bring some sunshine to the Harrisburg area, compared to recent days.

The storm that brought the flooding rain late last week is still lurking along the coast and a front is approaching from the Midwest this week.

However, the storm is much weaker and will get kicked away at midweek by the front from the west.

The result will bring some sunshine most days of the week through Friday, as well as temperatures averaging 5 to 10 degrees above normal.

Typically daytime highs are in the middle 60s with nighttime lows in the middle 40s.

The greatly weakened storm passing by offshore and the front swinging through can produce a couple of showers from Tuesday night into Thursday, but the odds are against lasting rainfall and greatly against flooding problems.
