Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service State College PA
521 PM EDT Sun Jul 22 2018

A broad low pressure area to the west of the state will sit in 
place for most of this week. This stagnant pattern will make for 
numerous showers and thunderstorms each day, especially during the
afternoon and evening hours.

Areas that received rainfall greater than 3 inches overnight on
Saturday are especially susceptible to flash flooding over the
next couple days. Scattered showers and occasional thunderstorms
on saturated soils could lead to rapid rises in streams. An
unsettled pattern Will persist through the next several days with
lows in the upper 60s and low 70s at night and highs in the upper
70s and low 80s. 

Additional rainfall accumulations through Friday will approach 3
inches across a majority of eastern Pennsylvania.
