Continuing The Tropical Muggies
Scattered showers and storms will be with us today as the front moves through, with any of the storms producing heavy rains that could lead to localized flooding and ponding of water on roads. A flash flood watch remains out for the region until 8 PM for the potential of heavy rains causing some additional flooding problems. Rainfall in Philadelphia yesterday ranged from three inches at the Airport in Southwest Philly to over five inches in Northeast Philadelphia, with a two-day total of six inches in Northeast Philadelphia. It won't take much rain to get local streams and streets to become a water hazard.
These showers and storms will be more prevalent from late morning through early this evening as the front approaches and crosses...until then, it will be humid with a few peeks of sunshine through clouds. Highs will reach the middle 80's this afternoon before any thunderstorm activity begins to cool us (slightly).
