In the wake of locally severe thunderstorms Thursday afternoon and evening, much cooler air flows across the Harrisburg area and southern Pennsylvania to end the week.

Canadian air settled in over the region early Friday, with much lower temperatures and humidity, as well as a gusty breeze. Some people will feel refreshed, while others may mind the sudden chill. That breeze should prevent fog Friday morning.

The pattern into the weekend could yield some of the lowest temperatures of the season so far for southern and central Pennsylvania. High temperatures may fail to reach 70 degrees in some locations.
