    Harrisburg: Storms to Wait Until After the Weekend

    By by Alex Sosnowski, senior meteorologist.

    Showers and thunderstorms will soon return to the Harrisburg area but not until after the weekend.

    Dry and warm weather will instead hold through Sunday, creating another great day for those with outdoor activities.

    Temperatures will approach 85 F as some residents may also notice an increase in humidity.

    At Long Pond, Pennsylvania, for the Pocono 400 on Sunday, sunshine will throttle the temperature to near 80 F after a traditional cool early June start. Thunderstorms building to the west in the afternoon should hold off until after the race.

    If it is the beach you had in mind on this great weekend for swimming, remember surf temperatures are in the mid- to upper 60s and can pose a risk of cold water shock for some individuals.

    Get your fill of sunshine and outdoor plans in this weekend, as much of the new week is likely to be unsettled with showers and thunderstorms around on a nearly daily basis.
