The National Weather Service is calling for showers and possibly a thunderstorm in the Lehighton area. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. Chance of precipitation is 80%.

Next Saturday, August 25 Mahoning Valley Speedway stock racing presented by Lehighton Ford will be headlined by a $2500-to-win Modified feature.
