Yesterday the high officially hit 80 degrees at Harrisburg International Airport and today the thermometers should go even higher. Expect mostly sunny skies on this Tuesday with record warmth likely. The record today was set over 100 years ago in 1908 when the mercury hit 82 degrees. That record will probably fall this afternoon as high temperatures today will be warmer than they were back on July 4th! Tonight will bring partly cloudy skies and very mild conditions with lows falling into the lower 60s. Tomorrow will be just as warm if not a bit muggy, but with more in the way of clouds. There could be a stray shower popping up in spots tomorrow, but most locations won’t see much if any rain on Wednesday.
Thursday also features the chance for some stray showers as a weak stationary front sits over top of the region. The best chance for showers looks to be Friday before skies clear and things turn blustery for the weekend. There are a couple of forecast models that linger the rain into Saturday, but for now we’re forecasting a dry and chilly weekend with highs in the upper 50s. A big change appears on the way for Saturday and Sunday with a chill back in the air. Until then, enjoy the mid October warmth!
