Umbrellas can be left at home around Harrisburg, Pa., through Wednesday.

High pressure will promote a dry stretch of weather in Harrisburg through Wednesday, unlike what was occurring one year ago as Sandy barreled onshore.

The arrival of fresh cool air will hold Tuesday's high to the upper 50s underneath a mixture of sun and clouds. It will turn noticeably warmer Wednesday with highs reaching the upper 60s.

A shower or two from another storm will graze the city on Thursday with steadier rain likely to follow Thursday night. Any lingering rain Friday morning will taper off by the afternoon.

AccuWeather.com meteorologists are monitoring the potential for gusty winds to accompany Friday's showers.

Thursday night's soaker should hold off until after trick-or-treating hours as long as the storm delivering the rain does not reach the Northeast quicker than currently expected. Even if the steadiest rain waits until Friday, a stray shower should still be around Thursday evening.

Ahead of the late-week storm, mild air will be drawn into the Northeast and boost temperatures in Harrisburg to around 70 degrees for both Thursday and Friday.
