As a storm system drifts slowly northward along the Atlantic coast, periods of rain and drizzle will affect the Harrisburg area through Friday, but dampness will linger this weekend.
Rain from the coastal storm has been funneled northwestward across south central Pennsylvania since Thursday. As of 8:00 a.m. EDT, Friday, about 6.5 inches of rain has fallen at Capital City and Harrisburg International airports with nearly 4.5 inches falling at York and just over 3.5 inches at Lancaster.
Additional rounds of heavy rain will occur into Friday night.
Enough rain has fallen to cause flash and poor drainage area flooding, as well as significant rises on small streams. These will remain concerns through Friday night.
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 could linger Saturday 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 and New Jersey.
