We see a brief warming trend through the end of the week!

HARRISBURG, Pa. — WARMING TREND: After a warmer high in the mid-70s, our stretch of mornings in the 30s and 40s ends Wednesday. Overnight lows dip into the low-50s, maybe a spot or two could touch the upper-40s with clear skies. Mostly sunny skies dominate a dry Wednesday with highs near 80. A few more clouds roll in Thursday, but otherwise rinse-and-repeat. Cloudier conditions roll in Friday with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the low-80s, but we stay dry through the remainder of the work week. Morning lows Friday just shy of 60° will be the norm.

Rain chances hold off through the first half of the weekend.

NEXT RAIN CHANCE: We're watching the slow-moving Tropical Storm Beta to pass to our south this weekend. We stay dry Saturday with highs in the upper-70s. Sunday is our next, low chance for a couple showers depending on Beta's path. Highs reach the upper-70s once again though, so stay tuned for updates. It would be a welcome shot of some rain as we've been in a pretty dry stretch. Most of Perry, Juniata and Mifflin counties remain in a moderate drought. We could see a couple more showers on a mostly cloudy Monday with highs in the upper-70s.

Tropical Storm Beta continues its slow march through Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi this week.

UPDATE ON TROPICAL STORM BETA: Tropical Storm Beta finally made landfall in southeastern Texas overnight into Tuesday morning, but high pressure over the East Coast will cause Beta to continually push slowly eastward. The storm isn't over northern Mississippi until Friday as it weakens into a tropical depression in the next 48 hours. As previously mentioned, depending on its path, we could see a few showers as it further weakens to a run-of-the-mill low pressure system. Stay tuned for updates.
