Just when it was starting to become a bit dry for the area, with even a drought watch being issued for Lycoming County, the skies opened up this past weekend with plenty of rain.
In fact, the 1.97 inches of rain that fell between 7 a.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. Sunday ended up being a record, according to the National Weather Service.
"That is quite a bit of rain," National Weather Service forecaster Joe Ceru said from State College.
And it looks like wet conditions could be in store for at least the next few days.
A 30 percent chance of showers or thunderstorms is in the forecast for today and Tuesday with accumulations of less than 0.10 of an inch possible each day.
Otherwise, it will be partly sunny both days with highs in the mid to upper 80s.
Wednesday will present yet another day of partly sunny skies with a chance of rain.
Night-time lows through the period will be in the lower 60s.
Ceru said a wet weather pattern, which has settled over the area, also will mean humid conditions.
For the month of August, Williamsport already has received 2.48 inches of rainfall, he noted. That's 1.67 inches above normal.
"We were extremely dry in July, so this (rain) has been helpful," he said.
Thursday and Friday will be sunny with highs in the low 80s.
Night-time temperatures will dip into the upper 50s.
By the weekend, the wet weather could return. The forecast calls for a 30 percent chance of showers or thundershowers Saturday.
