Saturday will be the better day for weekend outdoor activities around Harrisburg with a shower or thunderstorm set to return on Sunday.

Instead of umbrellas, residents and visitors will want to grab sunglasses and apply sunscreen before heading out to enjoy Saturday's rain-free and partly sunny day.

Anyone who opts to wear long-sleeved shirts and light jackets in the early morning will be changing or putting the jackets away by the afternoon with temperatures set to rebound to the 80-degree mark.

Low humidity will make the day even more enjoyable to be outside.

An increase in clouds Saturday night will be a sign that the pleasant weather starting the weekend will not last.

A more humid Sunday will then unfold as a storm system dropping down from Canada pushes a shower or thunderstorm through the city.

While Sunday will be far from a washout, any shower or thunderstorm threatens to briefly interfere with outdoor activities and sporting events.

A shower or thunderstorm will still be around early next week. Depending on the exact track of a storm moving in from the Midwest, AccuWeather.com meteorologists will be monitoring the potential for a period of numerous drenching thunderstorms to move through and heighten the flood risk.
