All severe weather watches and warnings for central Pennsylvania have been dropped, according to the National Weather Service at State College.

Lightning, hail, and high winds are the main threats. "Within these storms, expect some heavy downpours, strong winds and even some hail".

The temperatures are expected to be in the low 90s on Saturday, which could challenge the record high of 93 degrees set back in 1914. By the time you reach I-78 however and certainly north of there, we will likely stay in the cool, more stable air mass, and hence the severe t-storm threat is greatly reduced here. According to the National Weather Service, wind gusts of up to 60 miles per hour and hail are expected.

The rain could continue Sunday morning, Mother's Day, and again in the evening.

SUNDAY: Cloudy with occasional rain showers. Temperatures will range between the upper 60s to the lower 70s. Low temperatures should fall to either side of 50 degrees.

"Things will be active, but nothing severe is expected", he said. Have a fantastic Mother's Day Weekend!
