Showers and thunderstorms rumbling across the East Coast on Sunday could spell trouble for those with outdoor plans around Harrisburg.

A shower or thunderstorm will rattle the Harrisburg area Sunday afternoon, threatening to interfere with outdoor plans.

Residents should prepare to move indoors for a time if thunder is heard. Remember that you are then close enough to be struck by lightning.

Clouds will otherwise win out over sunshine to end the weekend, holding temperatures to the lower 80s. Even though summer heat will be absent, humid conditions will not be.

Beyond the weekend, a shower or thunderstorm will still be around on Monday, mainly in the afternoon, before a dry Tuesday unfolds. Patchy fog may slow down motorists during the morning hours.

Each day will be humid as temperatures gradually rise through the 80s.
