    Late-Summer Heat Follows Cool Start for Harrisburg

    Cooler air moved in to start the week in Harrisburg, but a surge of heat is on the way.

    The cooler air that moved into the region was a result of a cold front swung through late on Sunday.

    More fall-like temperatures spread across the Northeast, dropping the city's high to 74 degrees Monday. Some spots in northern New England even struggled to climb out of the 60s.

    However, things will heat up again Tuesday as the cool air slides off into the northern Atlantic. This will allow warmer air to push up from the South.

    Temperatures will swing to 10 to 15 degrees above average for a brief period.

    From Tuesday through Thursday, temperatures will peak near 90 degrees in the urban areas with RealFeel® temperatures near 100 degrees for a few hours.

    The next cool front could bring thunderstorms to the area on Wednesday night and Thursday. Some storms on Thursday could be strong, perhaps severe.
