Showers will continue for the next few hours before tapering off tonight. Already seeing the back edge of the precipitation enter Franklin County. Because many areas have received over 2” of rain and an additional 1” or more is still possible in our eastern counties.
The National Weather Service in State College, PA has issued a Flood Advisory for Lebanon, Lancaster, Berks & Schuylkill counties until 3:45 A.M. Flooding of poor drainage roadways and small streams/creeks is possible as a batches of heavy rain continue to move over the advisory area. Remember not to drive through roadways that appear to be flooded.
Temperatures will be very slowly falling to the low 60s.
Morning fog and haze will start the day with morning lows still running above average in the upper 50s to low 60s.
We are looking at a mostly cloudy day. With the upper level low passing by just to our north it may trigger a few showers in the afternoon. Highs will warm to the mid to upper 60s.
The trend will be for drier air to move in for Friday and the weekend. It starts out chillier in the 40s to low 50s to end the week and with more sunshine, highs still rebound into the upper 60s. Upper level trough builds back in for the weekend bringing cooler air. Expect mid to upper 60s and partly sunny for Saturday with a few late day showers as a weak cold front swings through late. It will lead to an even chillier Sunday with lows near 40 and highs, despite more sunshine, only in the upper 50s.
Monday remains seasonal and dry but a deeper trough strengthens and moves in Tuesday into Wednesday and a low pressure system moves in at the surface both features will result in rain threat returning and even cooler temperatures with highs only in the 50s by Tuesday.
