Showers and thunderstorms will bring flooding downpours to places tonight, especially through the first half of tonight. Because of this, a flash flood watch is in effect into Saturday morning for Clinton, Centre and Huntingdon counties though we think there still could be flooding in some areas farther to the west of this watch area.
The showers and thunderstorms will shift to the east later tonight leaving us with leftover clouds and areas of fog. Lows tonight will be in the 50s which is way above average for this time of the year.
Behind this system, an upper level low pressure system will keep us cooler and unsettled through the holiday weekend and perhaps into the beginning of next week. Saturday will feature some breaks of sunshine through the clouds, especially in the morning. There will also be scattered showers during the afternoon into the evening hours. Temperatures on Saturday will still reach well into the 60s before these showers return. Easter Sunday looks like it will be the more unsettled day of the weekend with more clouds than sunshine and scattered showers. Highs on Sunday will be in the 50s to near 60. Monday will still bring clouds and sunshine with just the chance for a couple scattered showers. Highs will be in the 60s. Tuesday will still feature more clouds than sunshine along with the chance for a couple of showers. Highs will be in the 60s to near 70. We’ll have a chance for a shower or thunderstorm on Wednesday; otherwise, we’ll have a mix of clouds and sunshine with highs in the middle to upper 60s. Showers are possible on Thursday but it will stay mild with highs in the 60s to near 70.
