    After Friday's severe soaking, a welcome drier stretch of weather is on tap for Harrisburg.

    A cloudy, damp and drizzly Saturday night in Harrisburg will give way to a dry end to the weekend on Sunday as high pressure builds southward.

    There will still be more clouds than sunshine around, but umbrellas will not be a necessity.

    Monday and Tuesday will feature partly sunny skies and highs in the upper 60s.

    The dry spell will be welcome after Friday's rain in Harrisburg totaled 5.72 inches, triggering flash flooding and shattering the day's long-standing rainfall record of 1.47 inches from 1905.

    Friday's rain also pushed the month's total to 10.48 inches, as of Saturday afternoon, making this October the city's wettest on record. October 1976 and its 9.87 inches previously held that distinction.
