The cool, less humid air that moved into Harrisburg and southern and central Pennsylvania Tuesday will stick around into Saturday.

Most days will be sunny. High temperatures around the metro area will be in the 70s with nighttime lows in the 50s to near 60 for outdoor activities and ball games.

The rural areas can get even cooler at night.

Some early-morning commuters from the suburbs along the Turnpike, I-81, 283 and other rural routes may encounter patchy fog and slow travel.

The next chance of rain is not until Sunday, when a reinforcing cool front arrives from the northwest. A few spots may get a shower or thunderstorm on Sunday, but most of the time through Sunday will be rain-free for outdoor plans. Sunday will also be warmer and a tad more humid.
