    Drenching Rain to Soak Harrisburg Through Midweek

    A slow-moving storm has the potential to unload several inches of rain on the Harrisburg, Pa., area through midweek.

    The same storm responsible for severe weather and tornadoes over the Central and Southern states will send periods of rain through the mid-Atlantic and into the Northeast.

    While the rain will alleviate brushfire conditions, it can bring problems on the other end of the spectrum, such as travel delays from flash and urban flooding, as well as poor visibility.

    During Thursday, the flow will become more west to southwesterly. From this direction, the chilly flow from the Atlantic Ocean will be turned off. However, eventually cooler air from the Midwest will filter east of the Appalachians this weekend.

    The reversal of the winds will not end the chance of rain. The pattern could allow locally heavy, gusty thunderstorms to come calling on Thursday.

    Spotty showers from the ancient storm over the Midwest will settle over the region this weekend.
