Local Forecast Discussion

Tonight: Rather windy with periods of rain, some heavy. Low: 54

Friday: Cool with on-and-off rain and drizzle and a gusty breeze. High: 60

Friday Night: Cloudy and breezy with showers around. Low: 56

With the drastic variation in rainfall totals over the last day or so it's almost impossible to put a range down that seems logical. There were parts of the viewing area as little as .10", while parts of southern New Jersey saw well over 1" and parts of Delaware received over 6" of rain. Patterns like the one we're in now and will be in through this weekend tend to play out that way with heavier bands of rain training over the same area for an extended period of time, while just 10 or 20 miles away they may see little or nothing. 

With that said, there will be another enhanced period of rain around tonight. What that means is there will be more activity and some locations may get hit fairly hard by the rain. This period of rain may extend into Friday morning, but during the afternoon and evening hours on Friday we should see the rain taper back a bit. Overnight lows will fall into the mid 50s tonight as we continue to deal with a steady wind.

As mentioned earlier, Friday may begin with a few steadier pockets of rain, but again the frequency and activity is expected to tone down as the afternoon and evening roll around. Otherwise, Friday will be rather cloudy, windy and damp with highs only topping out near 60 degrees, which is roughly 10 degrees below average for late September.

There will be some showers around this weekend and maybe even another enhanced period of rain Saturday night into Sunday. However, each day we will see some improvements. So there will be a few showers around on Saturday and perhaps that period of rain at night, but Sunday the showers are expected to be more scattered. Along with that, the winds will die down over the weekend as temperatures rise back into the mid 60s on Saturday and then low 70s on Sunday. As for putting a number on the rainfall amounts, they will vary greatly across the viewing area, but most of the viewing area will see rainfall amounts in the .50" to 2" range. However, there will be locations that could see more than 2" and those areas will mainly be south of Allentown.
