Saturday rain showers and storms linger through the weekend

Saturday rain showers and storms linger through the weekend

Temperatures will top off this afternoon in the mid to upper 80s with the heat index at 90+ for most.

Throughout the rest of this next work week, scattered showers and storms will be sticking with us.

The combination of heat and humidity also means frequent and vivid lightning is likely in numerous storms.

Tomorrow night: Increasing clouds.

Monday's overall rain chance stands at 50 percent, according to the weather service.

The National Weather Service says rain has come to an end in the Lehigh Valley this morning, as the system that gave us a soggy Sunday finally moves out to sea. Gusty winds, hail, vivid lightning and very heavy rain are the main threats.

Monday we will continue the trend of wet weather with another 50% chance throughout the day.

The strong to severe storms will be moving through the mountains this afternoon into the evening hours. Otherwise we're mostly cloudy as drier air filters in and lows dip to the mid-50s to low 60s.

More storms will be likely on Wednesday.

Storms are possible again overnight tonight and into early Sunday with the best chance east of HWY 63 and north of I-70.

Meteorologists say temperatures on Tuesday will also be around 5 to 10 degrees warmer than today, with highs back into the mid 70s across the region.
