Forecast Discussion:

The next chance of rain arrives Friday with muggy conditions returning. The chance of rain, and perhaps a storm, is 90%. Any storms that develop in the afternoon could produce gusty winds and could possibly turn severe. The severe risk Friday is MARGINAL, the lowest on the risk scale of severe weather. Northeast PA is in SLIGHT, which is the next step up. There is a small risk of flash flooding if any training storms, or heavy downpours, occur. The potential of 2-3″ of rain locally exists inside these areas. FLASH FLOODING AND SEVERE WEATHER IS NOT GUARANTEED.
