Sunshine and less humid conditions are in the offing for Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, this weekend, but not before more downpours drench the region into Friday night.

Clouds, high humidity and rounds of heavy rain and thunderstorms will rule through Friday evening.

The pattern will bring an ongoing risk of flash and urban flooding that can greatly slow travel and disrupt outdoor activities. Be prepared for direct and indirect flight delays Friday evening as the storms will reach from Boston to Atlanta.

A few communities can also be hit by a gusty thunderstorms into the evening hours.

For fans heading to baseball games in the evenings through Friday, have some raingear handy in case a downpour develops over the ballpark with little notice. Be prepared to take cover if storms approach.
