A sharp cold front slicing slowly through the Northeast will bring a band of heavy rain from New York state southward to Pennsylvania and Virginia on Saturday.
A few cities and towns most at risk include Syracuse, N.Y.; State College, Pa.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; Hagerstown, Md. and Charlottesville, Va.
On average, rainfall of 0.50-1.00 inch will fall as the front crawls across the region, but a few spots could have locally as much as 2.00 or more inches.
Those who are headed out to Penn State vs. Kent State on Saturday afternoon will certainly need to have the ponchos with them. The heaviest rain looks like it will fall either just before or around kickoff at 3:30 p.m.
The same can be said for the 12:30 p.m. kickoff at Lane Stadium where Virginia Tech will take on Marshall.
Motorists traveling the New York Thruway or Interstate 80 in Pennsylvania will need to be on the lookout for blinding downpours and water ponding on the roadway. Slow down and keep a few car lengths back from the vehicle in front of you to allow for a safe stopping distance in case you hydroplane.
Some poor drainage flooding and flooding of more urban areas is possible, especially in areas where persistent thunderstorms occur.
The rain will move into New England on Saturday night, and then linger across Massachusetts and Maine for the early part of Sunday before departing on Sunday night.
Tropical Storm Neoguri has quickly weakened as it made landfall over Japan, but it still poses dangers to the nation with heavy rain and possible mudslides.
Days after Neoguri takes a curved path over Japan and into the northern Pacific, much cooler air will drive southeastward across the Midwest and into the Northeast.
Pockets of potentially flooding rain, hail, and unseasonably cool air will not be quick to leave central and eastern Europe.
