"We're in for some extreme summertime conditions", said National Weather Service at State College meteorologist Charles Ross. Overall a nice weekend for mid-July with temperatures pretty close to normal for this time of year.
In the Harrisburg area, today will be mostly sunny with a high near 88. As of now it appears remnants of Tropical Storm Barry move into the region Tuesday and Wednesday. Right now it looks like this storm will bring flooding rainfall to the MS and Ohio Valley, however Kansas will remain on the dry side of this tropical system. Scattered rain showers and a few storms will be possible for Sunday but mainly in southern portions of Kentucky with a stationary front kicking up some late day storms.
On Monday, expect sunny skies and a high of 87 and a low of 67. Heat indices will approach the risky category and heat advisories may be needed towards the end of the week for parts of central and eastern Kansas.
