The heavy rainfall that pummelled Lycoming County Saturday won't be back, but light showers are expected to continue throughout the week, according to Craig Evanego, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in State College.
Evanego said the Williamsport area received 2 inches of rain Saturday, and while the forecast for the upcoming week doesn't show any signs of heavy winds or flooding, it also doesn't contain much sunshine or warmth.
"It looks like a fairly unsettled week," he said. "There's a chance of showers almost every day."
Today will start out sunny, but rain is expected to return in the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 50s.
"We're looking for just a light west wind becoming southerly in the afternoon," Evanego said.
Winds will blow at 5-10 mph and showers will continue through the evening, with temperatures hitting the low 40s.
"Tuesday there's still a good chance of showers around, maybe even a few thunderstorms," Evanego said.
Temperatures will range in the low 50s throughout the day.
"It looks like a continued chance of showers and thunderstorms into Wednesday," he said.
Things finally will warm up a bit Wednesday, with temperatures entering the low 70s, and rain may finally taper off a bit on Thursday.
"Thursday may be a quieter day. Thursday should be partly sunny and cooler, with highs in the upper 50s," Evanego said.
Those planning to plant trees and engage in Earth Day activities Friday may enjoy a dry afternoon, but the rain showers will not hold off for the Easter weekend.
"Friday, we cloud back up and there's a chance of rain late in the day," Evanego said.
Friday will bring highs in the upper 50s.
Easter weekend weather looks to be less than ideal, with showers forecast to likely continue through Saturday and Sunday."It's just going to be off and on showers through a lot of the week," Evanego said.
