    After a period of dry air, showers and thunderstorms will survive the trip into Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, from the Midwest.

    There is a risk of downpours heavy enough to cause flash and urban flooding into Thursday night.

    The amount of shower and thunderstorm activity may diminish locally Friday into Saturday but is likely to continue south and west of the region.

    AccuWeather will also be watching for an uptick in tropical activity during the last part of August. September is typically the most active month in terms of tropical storms and hurricanes in the Atlantic Basin.
