Winding Down The Rain

The bulk of the heavy rains have departed, with lingering showers and areas of drizzle. There is one batch of steadier rain down in South Jersey and Delaware that's pushing east and northeast.  This is in association with the mid level center of Andrea as it moves east northeast into the Atlantic.  The system is not tropical at this point but is producing some gusty winds right along the immediate South Jersey coastline.

Rainfall should gradually subside over the next couple of hours -- a couple of tenths of additional rain can't be ruled out...but thankfully the worst of the rains are over for the region for today and tonight.

Through 11 PM, Philadelphia has picked up 3.37" of rain, a record for today.  Much of the region has picked up between two and four inches of rain, with the lion's share of rain right along or just west of I-95 through the Philadelphia suburbs down into New Castle County in Delaware.

We'll post a more detailed recap of the rains on Saturday.
