A few storms develop this afternoon with highs in the upper-80s.

HARRISBURG, Pa. — HUMID, FEW STORMS: We're just as muggy and a few degrees cooler this afternoon, but plenty hot and humid still for our Wednesday. Partly cloudy skies roll in for the afternoon with highs just shy of 90° for most. A couple afternoon showers, maybe a rumble of thunder develop and last into the evening hours due to a stalled front nearby. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH has been issued for York and Lancaster counties from Noon until 11PM Wednesday as showers develop and move slowly. That front will stay with us through the rest of the week and into the weekend, bringing us multiple rounds of shower chances in the next several days. Overnight lows dip into the low-70s.

Another round of showers and storms develop Thursday.

MORE STORM CHANCES: Shower chances increase slightly Thursday as we lose a couple of degrees for our high temperature. Mostly cloudy skies dominate the day with afternoon showers and storms once again. Not everyone will see them, but we'll have one or two more than we will Wednesday. Highs only reach the low-to-mid 80s. We stick with the mid-80s Friday with more shower and storm chances as well to finish the week.

Storm chances persist into the weekend.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK: Shower and storm chances persist this weekend, but Saturday is by no means a washout. Highs reach the mid-80s with partly cloudy skies. Afternoon showers and storms once again develop, but currently Saturday looks like the driest day of the next few days. Sunday, though, has the chance of being the wettest. Mostly cloudy skies develop with highs struggling to hit 80°. Shower chances currently look a little more scattered with current guidance, but there's a big difference in modeling of the path of the stationary front that could make Monday a little bit wetter. Stay tuned as we get closer to time. Temperatures rise just a bit into next week.
