Flash flood watch, heavy rain over southern areas tonight

*A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Franklin, Adams, and York Counties through tonight*

It has been a fairly humid week for Central PA and that will continue over the next two days. A frontal boundary to the south of Pennsylvania will guide waves of moisture northward into the viewing area both today and tomorrow. Expect occasional showers today with some of them on the heavy side. With easterly flow, temperatures will hold in the 70s for highs. Tonight will bring plenty of clouds and another potent wave of moisture with heavy rain possible after midnight and extending into early Friday morning. For the early morning commute between 4-7 AM we do expect the steady to heavy rain to continue.

Tomorrow could bring some peeks of sunshine as the clouds clear in the afternoon, and more storms will likely pop-up with an approaching front. Temperatures bounce back into the mid 80s tomorrow with plenty of humidity sticking around. Heavy rain is the main threat. A strong line of storms will form over western PA tomorrow afternoon, so we will need to monitor that line of storms for any severe weather arriving late in the day for us. We will keep you posted. In the meantime, 1-2″ of rain are possible through tomorrow, especially for areas that see multiple rounds of downpours both days. Neither day will be a complete wash, however, with plenty of breaks in the rain.

The weekend will bring some relief from the humidity with a breezy day shaping up for Saturday. Sunday looks even nicer with lots of sunshine and highs in the lower 80s! There is a chance for another front to bring a few showers by next Tuesday. We’ll keep you posted on the extended forecast and in the meantime, stay tuned for updates on the rain over the next two days too. Enjoy!
