    Harrisburg: New Week Brings Surge of Heat, Humidity

    By By Kristina Pydynowski, senior meteorologist

    The absence of high heat and humidity around Harrisburg will not last into the start of the new week.

    As the area of high pressure that kept humidity low through the holiday weekend departs, the door will open for yet another surge of steamy air into Harrisburg for the new week.

    Temperatures will return to around the 90-degree mark both Monday and Tuesday. With higher humidity in place, AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures will soar well into the 90s.

    Such heat and humidity will prove challenging and hazardous for those with respiratory issues and those engaging in manual labor. Be sure to take the necessary steps, which includes drinking plenty of water and wearing light clothing, to stay cool.


    Spotty cooling thunderstorms dotting places toward State College and Altoona in the afternoon will spread to the Harrisburg area Monday afternoon.

    The thunderstorm chance will encompass all of the capital region on Tuesday, potentially causing some disruptions to outdoor activities.

    Another unsettled day with a lingering shower or thunderstorm will unfold on Wednesday as a cold front is slow to push to the east. Drier air in the front's wake should work in for the latter part of the week.
