Near-record highs on Saturday; soggy and cooler for Easter Sunday


Saturday's highs look to be in the mid-60s up to 70. This is due to an uncertainty in the positioning of a slow moving frontal system which is battling against the high pressure to the east.

For Thursday, that means clouds accompanied by a few morning sprinkles or showers, and then just clouds in the afternoon, with daytime highs in the mid-60s.

More rain is possible in central Pennsylvania through Easter, but the wettest weather will be in New England.

The heaviest rain is expected to be finished by Sunday, but some showers could persist and dampen outdoor activities.

A Flood Watch has been issued for areas west of the 495-corridor and into southern NH for the heavy rain and the likelihood of minor to moderate river flooding for the first half of the weekend.
