Up to 3 inches of rain is expected to fall on Schuylkill County through Thursday morning as remnants of what was Tropical Storm Fred plod up the eastern US.

National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Schuylkill County from Tuesday night through late Wednesday night.

Up to 3 inches of rain is forecast to fall, according to the weather advisory. But some localized areas could receive as much as 5 inches of rain and rainfall amounts will depend on the track taken by what’s left of Fred.

Heaviest rainfall will fall to the west of the storm’s track. Potentially severe weather is likely to happen along the track and just east of it.
