In the wake of heavy rain and a gusty thunderstorm from Monday, much cooler weather will follow for the balance of the week around Harrisburg.

Much cooler and less humid air is in store for the region Monday night through Friday, marking an end to nearly a week with daytime highs in the 80s.

In many cases daytime highs the rest of the week will be 20 degrees lower than last week.

Normal high temperatures are in the middle 60s with night time lows in the middle to upper 40s. Temperatures will average near to slightly above normal.

Lingering moisture, some of which is associated with Tropical Rainstorm Karen will be watched for possible impact later in the week.
