    Harrisburg: Drier Weather to Follow Flooding Downpours

    While drenching thunderstorms inundated the Northeast early in the week, drier weather will follow with cooler air and low humidity.

    Showers will linger into early Wednesday morning before drier air moves in during the afternoon for the Harrisburg area.

    Following the storms, conditions will clear and remain that way through the end of the week.


    The main focus of heavy rain will shift farther north, across New England during the day, bringing the threat for flooding with it, mainly in low-lying and poor-drainage areas.

    “An unseasonably cool air mass will be in place across the Northeast for the rest of the week with much lower humidity,” AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Carl Erickson said. “However, much of the I-95 corridor from New York City to the nation’s capital should have a dry day with comfortable temperatures and low humidity.”

    Cooler and less humid air will follow for Thursday and Friday with high temperatures below normal, in the upper 70s.

    “Harrisburg will have a nice day with more in the way of sunshine,” Erickson said.

    Looking into the weekend, sunshine will return with temperatures increasing slightly to the low 80s.
