Our Futurecast model shows the potential for more locally heavy rainfall Thursday afternoon. The yellow and red colors on the radar indicate this.

An upper level area of low pressure slowly exiting the Mid-Atlantic is expected to churn more showers our way Thursday afternoon.  Coverage will be scattered during the afternoon hours, with more locally heavy downpours possible.  A Flash Flood Watch still remains in effect for Snyder, Northumberland, Cumberland, Perry, and Dauphin counties until 8 P.M. as a result.  A few thunderstorms are possible, but any storms look to stay below severe limits at this point in time.  The activity begins to wane during the late day hours.  Sunshine will be limited this afternoon.  Locations that see more clouds and shower activity only reach the 60s for high temperatures, whereas locations that stay drier and sneak in more sunshine reach the upper 60s to lower 70s.
