More cool air is headed back to Harrisburg, York, Lancaster and Lebanon, Pa., but there is good news for those who want summer warmth to hang on.

At least two more waves of cool air will roll into the region. One will arrive Sunday and stick around into Monday. Another wave is due in late next week.

In between the cool waves, folks who like warmth and humidity will be satisfied as well with steamy air quickly to return by midweek. Good days to head to the beaches, if possible include Monday and Tuesday.

The passage of a cool front Sunday may bring a stray shower in the morning.

The next front may bring spotty showers and thunderstorms later Wednesday into Thursday. The thunderstorms on Thursday may turn severe.

The vast majority of the time will be free of rain for outdoor plans, high school and college football, farming and construction activities.

The weather at Washington, D.C., Monday evening for the Eagles/Redskins first game of the 2013 regular season should be mainly clear and comfortable with temperatures falling through the 70s.
