A push of cooler and less humid air is settling over Harrisburg, southern Pennsylvania and northern Maryland for the balance of this week.

Several days of bright sunshine are in store.

The push of Canadian air will end the daily risk of showers and thunderstorms experienced during the holiday weekend.

Many people will be able to turn off the fans and air conditioners with temperatures in urban areas dropping well down into the 50s at night.

Many rural will have night time temperatures dipping into the 40s.

Each day Wednesday through Friday will bring bright sunshine and a cool breeze with highs generally in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees.

Beginning Wednesday, the only potential, weather-related travel problem would be patchy early-morning fog for long-distance commuters over the river valleys. Some major highways that could be impacted by isolated fog patches include the Turnpike, I-78, I-81, I-83, and Route 322.

For those hitting beaches this week, the afternoons will still be warm enough to swim, but bring a sweatshirt or jacket for the evenings and mornings.
