After a cool and damp Friday in Harrisburg, Pa., a dry and mild weekend is in store.

A damp breeze off the ocean will generally keep temperatures in the lower 50s on Friday.

The typical high for the area this time of the year is 58 F.

According to Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson, "The easterly flow setup on Friday is very common for the mid-Atlantic during April into May."

In addition to low clouds, drizzle and cool air from the Atlantic, remnants of thunderstorms from the Midwest will reach the area in the form of rain. It is possible the storms survive the trip into the cool air to bring downpours with thunder and lightning Friday night.

Dry air is projected to sweep in over the weekend on brisk winds from the west and northwest.

High temperatures will generally be in the upper 50s to the lower 60s Saturday and Sunday.
