Heavy Rain Expected in Schuylkill County Saturday

1-2 inches expected today

This week started out with some very light snow flurries for a few days. And now, it’s ending with a drenching rain.

National Weather Service says we’ll get about 1-2 inches of rain, mostly before 4 p.m.

This map NWS put together shows closer to 2 inches and more in some areas of the coal region:

The rain will move out by the late afternoon and replaced by some more cold air at night. These early Spring nights this year have been rather cold. That doesn’t look like it’s changing in the week ahead.
