Your Eyewitness Weather Forecast

Heavy rain is in the forecast this week!

A strong southerly flow is in place across the eastern United States. This flow has a tropical connection (Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico) and will push a lot of moisture into Pennsylvania. Tonight through Thursday will turn out awfully muggy with off and on rain and thunderstorms. At times, this rain will be heavy. Each day, highs will be near 80 and lows will be around 70.

It's hard, if not impossible, to pinpoint the exact location of the heaviest rain each day. If too much rain falls in a short amount of time in one spot, it can lead to flash flooding. Main concerns are roads, streams, creeks and areas of poor drainage.

We'll be keeping a close eye on the Susquehanna and Delaware River systems. Right now, some minor flooding is possible. This is not a guarantee, but you should monitor conditions if you live near either river.

Towards the end of the week, a couple of cold front will attempt to change our weather pattern. Thursday and Friday will stay muggy with some showers and storms possible. However, it could be less wet than the first part of the week.

As we head towards next week, our *early outlook* is calling for a drop in the humidity and the rain to ease up across the area.
