Another Inch of Rain in the Forecast for Friday Night

Another round of rain ready to drench Schuylkill County.

Now that you’ve had a chance to dry out after the heavy rain earlier this week, here comes another round of heavy rain.

It looks like the rain will be moving in after the sun goes down on Friday and when the rain does arrive, it could be significant. Up to 2 inches is possible. One bright spot, no irony intended, is that while it’s raining, temps are going to rise to Spring-like levels.

But when this latest storm system moves out of the area, that’ll be the end of the warmer weather.

Next week, we’re looking at overnight lows in the teens. And the chance of snow on Tuesday is growing ever so slightly every day. Stay tuned on that.
