    Another line of storms moved through our region Saturday leading to heavy rain, isolated flooding and possibly two house fires in Berks County.

    Firefighters battled two separate house fires in Lower Heidelberg Township, Berks County. The owner of one of the homes told NBC10 a lightning strike caused the fire. No injuries were reported in either fire.

    Isolated flooding was also reported in parts of Kent County, Delaware.

    We’ll see dry conditions and plenty of sun Sunday while temperatures remain in the low to mid 80s. During the work week ahead, conditions will remain mostly dry. Chances of rain are low but possible Monday night into Tuesday. Then, sunshine takes over the region through Thursday.
