Relatively Quiet Evening Ahead
After the earlier shower activity that moved through, sunshine has taken over the region. There are a couple of leftover showers in spots -- one to the south of Lancaster, a second across Western PA in a scattered line -- but the balance of the state is dry as we work into the evening hours.
We should be more dry than not this evening at this point -- the showers in Western Pennsylvania could move through here after 9 PM with some isolated thunder and it's possible as the frontal boundary slides southeast towards us a few more showers try to fire up across Eastern Pennsylvania. That said, the threat for showers is isolated in nature as of now and short-term modeling keeps that threat rather isolated and limited in scope.
The showers to the west of Altoona seem to have the most pop going for them but looking at coverage geographically there doesn't seem to be a very widespread concentration -- hence, we're thinking isolated showers, perhaps a rumble of thunder at this point and through the evening hours.
If anything drastically changes, we'll give you an update.
