However, the rain is setting up quicker than first believed and farther to the south, reducing flooding threats to the county, tweeted Eric Horst, Millersville University Director of Weather Information. Storm chances start to drop off this weekend; even still, there's the risk for pockets of heavy rain and flooding concerns. Similar rainfall is expected throughout the state, but Baltimore and Washington, D.C., could get five or more inches. Often during heavy rainfall, water pools quickly on a roadway surface.

Lehigh, Northampton and Warren counties are forecast to see from 1 inch to 1 3/4 inches of rain through Sunday, the National Weather Service said Thursday.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop on and off throughout the day. At high speeds, even a small amount of water can cause you to lose traction and ultimately control of your vehicle. An additional 1 to 2 inches is expected at night.
