Central Pennsylvania got the much-needed rain forecasters called for on Monday.
The Harrisburg area saw 1.44 inches of rain Monday as of 5 p.m., said Dave Martin, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in State College. Other areas in the midstate got more than that, Martin said, noting the relatively dry year for large parts of Pennsylvania.
Conditions are expected to warm up and dry out Tuesday, but not before some fog overnight. A dense fog advisory has been issued for much of Central Pennsylvania, including Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Schuylkill, and York counties. The fog is likely overnight and though mid-morning Tuesday.
Martin said conditions will be warm, dry, and pleasant through the weekend, keeping with the trend of above average temperatures. He added that locals should expect lots of sunshine, good for pleasure activities or work outside in the yard.
