Today will be iffy.
Friday night, most showers are done and there shouldn't be any big weather issues for Friday night plans. That said, we are not expecting a total washout. The humidity will increase as we approach Sunday.
A summer set-up of heat, humidity and scattered storms for Father's Day weekend! When you factor in the humidity, it may feel more like the low 90s.
Tuesday: Expect a partly to mostly cloudy, hot and humid day with a 30% chance of showers and storms and afternoon temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s. Winds will be southwest 8 to 15 miles per hour. Everyone else started in the upper 30s to mid 40s and turned in with highs in the 70s to near 80°. Temperatures should be dropping to around 70, the weather service says. Dew points throughout the day will rise into the low-70s with highs in the mid-80s. As of Saturday evening, York, Lancaster and Lebanon counties are in an enhanced risk for severe weather, a 3 on scale of 1-to-5. Low temperatures Tuesday morning will be in the middle to upper 60s.
Rain chances continue into the evening hours, but there will be a lot of dry time in between the showers. Saturday will start off dry, but by 3pm Saturday afternoon there will be a chance for a spot thunderstorm.
The high temperature is expected to reach 91 on Sunday and more than inch of rainfall is possible for many areas on Monday, according to the National Weather Service. The normal highs for June 21 and 22 are both 81 degrees. Highs in the upper 80s. Since parts of our region has already seen lots of rain this past week, the ground will still be very saturated which makes the flood threat even greater for those areas. Some of the morning activities at the Travelers' may be affected.
