2+ Inches of Rain Likely in Schuylkill County Thru Tuesday

We could use it, just not all at once.


After a bone dry summer and even being placed under a Drought Watch, Schuylkill County is about to get a big, soaking rainfall.

Forecasters believe around 2 inches of rain will fall on Schuylkill County through Tuesday. Some areas of the coal region could see nearly 3 inches of rain before mid-week.

A Flood Watch was issued early Monday morning Schuylkill County through Tuesday morning.

The greatest risk from this expected rainfall is from flash flooding. People and motorists in flood-prone areas should be alert.

According to National Weather Service, steadier rain is expected in Schuylkill County after 2 p.m. Monday. The heaviest rain should fall on Monday night with rain showers lingering around the area through much of the early part of the day on Tuesday.

A widespread 2 inches of rain is likely through early Tuesday but more is possible in localized areas.

Temperatures during this time will not go above the mid-70s during the day but lows will only bottom out in the mid-60s at night.

This will be Schuylkill County’s best chance for rain over the next week. Another round of rain and showers isn’t expected until at least Sunday next week.
