A warmer weekend is in store for Harrisburg, Pa., ahead of another batch of rain for early next week.

The typical high for the city this time of the year is 59 F.

High temperatures both days will be within a few degrees of 60 F.

In the wake of locally drenching rain and spotty thunderstorms from Friday night, stiff winds from the west and northwest will bring dry air into the region on Saturday. Just a couple of spots may get a passing shower on Saturday.

The nicer of the two weekend days will be Sunday with sunshine and less wind.

A new storm forecast to brew near the Gulf coast this weekend will swing northeastward early next week with a dose of drenching rain.
