    Harrisburg: Heat Takes a Hike; Saturday May Be Unsettled

    In the wake of the hottest weather of the year so far, more seasonable temperatures have returned to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Thursday and will hold through the weekend.

    Temperatures during the middle of June tend to range from a low in the middle 60s F to a high in the lower 80s.

    The heat from Tuesday and Wednesday will break on Thursday in the form of episodes of rain and thunderstorms.

    Enough dry air may push in from the north and east on Friday to keep rain away and allow some sunshine.

    However, a zone of clouds, showers and thunderstorms will stretch from the Upper Midwest to the Ohio Valley and South Saturday and Sunday.

    There is a good chance that this zone will bulge to the northeast on Saturday. If so, the risk of clouds and wet weather will return to Harrisburg and vicinity.

    Temperatures hit 90 for the first time this year on Tuesday around Harrisburg. On average the first 90-degree temperature occurs during late May.

    High temperatures will be within a few degrees of 80 this weekend. Which side of 80 will depend on sunshine versus showers.

    The details on the weekend forecast will unfold over the next couple of days.
