A few showers pushed in from the south Wednesday afternoon, after a dry start to the day. The rain and showers will continue to overspread the area tonight. In fact, that rain may come down pretty heavy at times overnight with a rumble of thunder or two mixed in, primarily to the south. Along with the rain, skies tonight will be cloudy while the winds pick up and temperatures will fall into the mid and upper 50s.
Periods of rain will continue through midday on Thursday, at which point we will see the rain taper back a bit during the afternoon and evening hours. Otherwise, Thursday will be rather cloudy and windy with high temperatures being held in the 60s, albeit mid 60s. There may be another more active period of rain late Thursday night into Friday, but things are expected to taper back again Friday afternoon and evening. By that time the heaviest rain will be behind us with rainfall totals ranging from .50" or less in parts of the area to 2" or more in others. The most likely locations for those heavier rainfalls totals will be south and west of the Lehigh Valley. Aside from the rain, the winds will remain strong on Friday as highs hit the mid 60s.
While there will still be showers around over the weekend the frequency of those showers will continue to diminish by the day. So there will be a couple of showers around on Saturday, but the shower activity will be more scattered on Sunday. Rainfall totals over the weekend will generally be less than .25". Highs on Saturday will stay in the 60s, but they will pop back into the 70s on Sunday.
