    Harrisburg: Typical August Warmth While Bertha Stays Away at Midweek

    While surf will build along the beaches during the midweek, Bertha will remain well offshore of the coast and east of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

    Temperatures will rebound to more typical August highs by Tuesday.

    Highs are forecast to be well into the 80s Tuesday. The average high for early August is 85 degrees.

    More humid conditions will contribute to higher AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

    Only very spotty storms are forecast for Tuesday.


    More numerous showers and thunderstorms are projected for Wednesday. Cloud cover an downpours will hold temperatures back this day.

    For those planning to spend time at the beach, Wednesday's storms will coincide when Bertha causes surf to build and raises the risk of strong rip currents.


    The showers and storms will not be associated with Bertha but rather a cool front approaching from the Midwest.

    In the front's wake, the door will open for less humid air to arrive for late in the week. Temperatures will be shaved by a few degrees.
