Weather Forecasts

A stationary front is stalled just to the south of Pennsylvania and this will keep us unsettled as the week continues. Today we will have a mix of clouds and sunshine with an afternoon shower or thunderstorm possible for our southern counties. Our high temperatures on Thursday will be in the mid to upper 70s. Within a thunderstorm there could be downpours and gusty winds. The ground is very saturated due to this wet weather pattern we have been in. This could lead to minor flooding, if you are prone to flooding keep this in mind. Due to the rainfall, the National Weather Service has issued an Areal Flood Watch for Bedford and Somerset Counties until Friday at 10:00 PM.  Also, remember if you come across a roadway covered in water to turn around and take an alternate route. Thursday night our low temperatures will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Friday we will have another surge of moisture. It will be a rather cloudy day with scattered showers and thunderstorms. At this point, Friday looks to be the wettest day. Our high temperatures on Friday will be in the mid to upper 60s. It will be slightly cooler thanks to an easterly wind and the clouds.
