Play video Weather across the Northeast is discussed in the above AccuWeather.com video.

Just when it was starting to feel like the dog days of summer again, fresh cooler and less humid air will settle over the Harrisburg area into the weekend.

The weather will still be warm enough for swimming, but it will be more bearable for those without air conditioning.

After a winter with above-average heating bills from the Midwest to the Northeast, the weather will continue to work toward keeping cooling costs down through the end of July.

While temperatures will climb back into the middle to upper 80s for Saturday, humidity will remain low as dry weather holds. A spike in humidity will return the chance for a thunderstorm on Sunday.

Additional showers and thunderstorms will follow for Monday before yet another dose of Canadian air arrives next week.
