PENNSYLVANIA, USA — MEMORIAL DAY: It's a mild start to Memorial Day with temperatures starting off in the upper 50s for many. Skies stay partly cloudy as we continue to watch a storm system just to our south. A stray sprinkle is possible south of the turnpike today, otherwise we're dry and warming up! Expect afternoon high temperatures to be even warmer today with highs in the middle 80s - an appropriate start to the unofficial first day of summer!
WARMING UP: Temperatures continue to trend above-normal as many are back to work on Tuesday. Skies are mostly sunny with afternoon highs in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees. The average high this time of the year is 77 degrees. Wednesday is a similar day with a few more clouds passing through and we are dry for this period as well. We'll continue to crank up the heat through the end of the week with our first 90 degree day of the season likely by Friday!
NEXT WEEKEND: Temperatures look to stay on the warm side with 80s continuing into next weekend! Unfortunately, mostly dry weather looks to continue to persist with no big chances for rain on the horizon. We'll have to continue to monitor these dry conditions over the next week or two as our rainfall deficits continue to climb. For Harrisburg, the yearly rainfall deficit is climbing close to 5 inches once again.
