In wake of a weekend with low humidity and below-average temperatures, heat and humidity will make a return in a big way this week to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
"The hottest weather of the year will spread from the Ohio Valley to the mid-Atlantic states Tuesday into Wednesday," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson said.
Temperatures will reach the lower 90s F on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The high humidity accompanying the heat will push AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures in the 95 to 100 F range during the afternoons.
Harrisburg has not reached 90 F so far this year. The latest in the summer season the temperature hit 90 for the first time in the Harrisburg area was on July 30, 1917.
Limit your outdoor activities and seek shade or air conditioning when possible during the peak of the heat. Keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
Relief will also come from some cooling showers and thunderstorms which will be most prevalent during the afternoons and evenings Tuesday and Wednesday.
A high pressure system over the Southeast will be responsible for the upcoming hot weather. The extreme heat will gradually fade later this week as this high begins to weaken.
