Wet and Unsettled Through the Weekend

Over the hump and into Thursday, make sure you have your umbrella, rain slicker, poncho or whatever you use to ward off precipitation, handy today.  The remnants of Tropical Storm Karen will persistent throughout the day, with heavy periods of rain and showers possible, especially in the afternoon.  The "Weather in Words" today points to the forecast for the rest of the week.  While shower chances will be increased right through the weekend, we won't see any big accumulation at one time, meaning flash flooding chances remain fairly low.

Temperatures will struggle to get too much above the 60-degree mark, with highs in the lower 60's pretty much throughout the region.  Winds will remain relatively breezy as well, from the northeast at 5 to 15 mph.

The precipitation has been falling in sections of southern Delaware and New Jersey since yesterday afternoon, but overall, up to three inches over the next 5-days could fall over south Jersey and Delaware and about two-and-a-half inches throughout the Philadelphia metro.
