As far as Columbus Day weekends go, they don't get more sticky and summery than this one.
Rain will be heavy at times this morning from Nate for everyone in CNY.
Nate is now bringing heavy rainfall to Nicaragua and Honduras, as it scrapes along their coasts on a northwest track toward Cancun.
Nate is no longer considered a tropical system, but a large area of rain moved into Central New York Sunday night and continues Monday morning.
The first band of rain moves through this morning associated with a warm front.
The National Weather Service is forecasting up to three-quarters of an inch of rain throughout the day for the Harrisburg region.
New rainfall amounts of between a quarter to a half inch are possible in the city and to the west, less in South Jersey. By this afternoon, the steadier rain should already be departing to our northeast, though a few scattered showers still may linger.
Wednesday through Friday: Expect mostly sunny and warm days with no rain and afternoon temperatures in the mid to upper 80s. Look for temperatures again in the low or even mid 70s. As a result, a high chance of showers and thunderstorms will continue into Wednesday. It will be partly sunny and less humid.
It will be breezy and more seasonable Wednesday as highs will range from 60 to 65. Slightly cooler and less humid by Thursday heading into the coming weekend.
Last week was absolutely stunning - we had lots of sunshine with temperatures initially starting in the 70s, then warming into the 80s. That might sound cool, but with dew points in the mid 60s signaling some surface moisture, things may feel a bit sticky.
Tonight brings the chance of continued rain, particularly across the northern Upstate into western NC.
