Meteorologist Kristin Emery says a warm front lifting through our region will trigger numerous showers and thunderstorms through the rest of the evening and into the first half of Sunday. Any of these thunderstorms could produce locally heavy downpours which could cause isolated flash flooding in saturated areas that have already received rainfall this past week.
The severe threat will diminish with sunset and into Sunday morning.MORE NEWS: Penn State Suspends More Than 100 Students For Missing Required COVID-19 Testing
