*Flood Watch in effect for Lebanon, Lancaster counties through Monday morning, Flash Flood Warning Expired in Eastern Lancaster County*
Periods of heavy rain started our Sunday, but overall the rainfall rates did decrease as the day went on. The damp air was locked in though, and periods of light rain continued with a few heavier pockets over eastern Lancaster County. This did prompt a Flash Flood Warning in eastern Lancaster County with standing water on roads near East Earl reported. Those higher water have since receded. Overall tonight will feature more areas of light, steady rain, but the flooding threat has diminished. The heaviest rain should stay to the northeast over northeastern PA and southeastern New York.
Overnight, the storm will continue to move northwestward toward Albany NY, which means rain may continue to pivot into our area through Monday morning. The storm will begin to pull east by then, with just a few pop-up storms Monday afternoon. When all is said and done, parts of York, Lebanon, and Lancaster counties could see 1-3″ of rain, with lesser amounts further northwest/west.
Once we get past Henri, the story this week will be the heat and humidity again with highs back into the low to mid 90s for mid-week. Rain chances look quite spotty as a ridge of high pressure takes a stranglehold of the mid-Atlantic. Summer ain’t going anywhere anytime soon!
