In the wake of heavy rainfall and flooding incidents, spotty showers will keep Harrisburg damp at times during this first weekend in May.
The storm spanning April 29 and 30, 2014, unloaded between 1 and 7 inches of rain on the region.
On Wednesday, the storm dropped 2.58 inches of rain on Harrisburg International Airport. Comparatively, Hurricane Floyd delivered 3.15 inches of rain on Sept., 16, 1999. Harrisburg has received 5.91 inches of rain during April 2014.
Additional showers are forcing residents and visitors to keep an umbrella handy this weekend as a storm system tracks across the Northeast.
The good news is that the light and spotty nature of the showers will allow for some breaks of dry weather and will prevent any flooding problems. However, the showers can still put a damper on outdoor plans.
Gusty winds may prove to be another annoyance to residents and visitors on Sunday.
Amid the shower activity, temperatures will still manage to climb into the 60s.
The shower chance will end by Monday, setting the stage for a stretch of dry weather through Wednesday.
Partly to mostly sunny conditions will prevail daily these days with temperatures rising to within a couple degrees of normal. A high around 69 F is typical in early May.
Not until late in the week will warmer air surge across the mid-Atlantic and return 80-degree warmth to Harrisburg.
