Don't be a baby. Grab some boots and come outside.

That was FoodStruck's on-the-spot slogan when a torrential downpour came to dinner at its outside eating event on Oct. 11 in York City, on the second day of a storm that dumped about 9 inches of rain in York County.

"It was raining really hard, and we made the decision that we were going to do (the event) rain or shine," recalled Meagan Feeser, an FoodStruck organizer. "And 1,700 people still came out."

Rain again: Foodstruck could be facing rain again Friday as both the National Weather Service and AccuWeather.com are calling for showers throughout the day.

FoodStruck will run, rain or shine, from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday on North Pershing Avenue, between West Market and West Philadelphia streets.

The second installment of FoodStruck will feature various types of menus offered by 27 food trucks from several places, including York, Lancaster and Philadelphia.

Up to 5,000 people are expected to attend the event, said Feeser, of Manchester Township.

"We're telling people to bring an umbrella and dress for the weather," she said. "We'll have some tents up. We're not too worried about the rain. That's not anywhere near what we got last year."

Despite the rain forecast, the weather between Friday and Monday will be above the 61 degrees. That is normal for this time of year, said John Dlugoenski, an AccuWeather meteorologist.

Some rain showers are expected throughout the day Friday until about 10 p.m., though the high temperature is expected to be 65, he said.

The overnight low will be in the mid-40s, said Tony Mach, meteorological technician with the National Weather service.

'Nice weekend': Both Mach and Dlugoenski said Saturday will bring in some nice sunshine. Dlugoesnki said the temperature could reach 71 degrees, while Mach settled in the high 60s.

"It looks like you're going to have a pretty nice weekend," Mach said.

While Sunday will bring in a high of 77 degrees, Monday is expected to be two degrees warmer and possibly hit the 80-degree mark, Dlugoesnki said.

However, the weather will cool down to the 50s on Tuesday and Wednesday, Mach said.
