Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop over southern Pennsylvania once again, the weather service said. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain in areas that are already saturated. 

“Just an inch of rain in one hour may be enough to cause flash flooding in the watch area,” the service reported.

Thursday’s forecast in York calls for cloudy skies, with high humidity and a high temperature near 83 degrees. The chance of precipitation is 70%, with rainfall amounts between a tenth and a quarter of an inch, except higher amounts are possible in thunderstorms.
