Despite a damp start to Sunday, the weekend is still shaping up to end on a comfortable note around Harrisburg.

Sunday will start with numerous clouds over Harrisburg as a cold front swings though.

A shower or thunderstorm will also pass through during the morning, but would only briefly interfere with any outdoor plans or those heading to church services.

Due to the spotty nature of the showers and thunderstorms, some parts of the city and surrounding areas will even escape the rain.

Any umbrellas that were needed in the morning (though remember to never use an umbrella during a thunderstorm) can be put away for the afternoon. The rain chance will be over and some sunshine will return to close out the weekend.

As high heat and humidity stays absent and temperatures instead rise into the lower 80s, the weather Sunday afternoon will be just as ideal as Saturday was for outdoor activities and sporting events.

This includes for those heading north to Williamsport to watch the Little League World Series.

The dry weather will persist through the start of Monday before a shower or thunderstorm returns from Monday afternoon through Tuesday as a storm system tracks from the Ohio Valley to the mid-Atlantic.

AccuWeather.com meteorologists are concerned for a narrow band of heavy rain to accompany this storm into the mid-Atlantic and will be monitoring the potential for that band to renew the flood danger around Harrisburg.
