The coastal storm that funneled heavy rain into Harrisburg and south-central Pennsylvania Thursday into Friday will continue settling south on Sunday.

Rain trended lighter and more intermittent on Saturday, but the overall weather will remain damp.

As of noon Friday, rain from the coastal storm brought about 7 inches at Capital City and Harrisburg International airports with nearly 6.75 inches falling at York and close to 4.5 inches at Lancaster.

While the storm near the coast is forecast to retreat southward over the weekend, it may be difficult to get rid of all of the moisture in the lowest layers of the atmosphere.

As a result, clouds, spotty light rain and drizzle will linger Saturday afternoon and Sunday.

For folks who have time off and are heading to the beaches, plan on indoor activities as conditions will be stormy from the Outer Banks to the Delmarva Peninsula, but some improvement is forecast for the New Jersey shore Sunday into Columbus Day.
