“A beautiful holiday weekend is in store for Harrisburg,” AccuWeather.com Meteorlogist Brian Edwards said. July Fourth will feature cooler conditions than recent days with much lower humidity and a good deal of sunshine, he said.
This will prove pleasant for those who have scheduled picnics, fireworks and a day at the amusement parks in the local area.
High temperatures will be in the upper 70s. Saturday and Sunday will both be beautiful with sunny skies and it will turn progressively warmer, Edwards added.
Highs on Saturday in the low 80s and on Sunday into the upper 80s.
It'll turn hot and humid on Monday with a partly sunny sky and a high near 92.
For people heading to the beaches, surf will build Thursday and will be rough Friday into Saturday. There is a chance of coastal flooding on Friday as Arthur makes its closest approach.
