More rain expected this weekend

Remnants of 'Gordon' set to surge into the tri-state

Gordon has seen the Florida Keys and the Gulf Coast beaches, but who knew last week that his travels would take him directly through Ohio.

It was a washout across central IL the past few days as the remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon brought heavy rain and, in some cases, flash flooding to the region. Some areas could receive up to four inches of rain. "No one is going to get out of this without seeing some flooding".

(State College) - The National Weather Service in State College has once again issued a flood watch for the midstate and many other regions of Pennsylvania from this evening through Monday night.

Gordon is no longer a tropical system as it spins through central Arkansas, but it is responsible for the oppressive humidity area wide. Weather.com calls for the rain to begin letting up early Sunday morning, with the chance of rain diminishing to about 40 percent by the scheduled race time, and remaining at 20-25 percent through 11 p.m. ET.

Look for highs around 90 with a 30% chance of pop-up showers and storms. A few ripples could bring us light rain chances Sunday night and Monday night, but the overall trend is looking MUCH drier next week.

The weekend will be sunny and cooler, with highs in the mid- to upper-60s both Saturday and Sunday.

More rain further south and east by Monday morning. The current forecast has Gordon dumping from 4 to 5 inches across Columbus "from the entirety of the storm", with the bulk of it coming Sunday, Franks said.
