What to Know

  • The NBC10 First Alert Weather Team has issued a First Alert from noon to 8 p.m. for the potential of flooding.

  • Heavy rain and downpours will begin to roll in around lunch time Monday and continue through the early evening commute.

  • Less than an inch of rain is expected but with the saturated ground, localized flooding could occur.

Heavy rain will once again inundate the Philadelphia region on Monday afternoon bringing the potential for flooding during the evening commute.

The NBC10 First Alert Weather Team has issued the First Alert for the whole region so you can be aware of that potential flood threat.

While there could be a few showers Monday morning, most of the morning commute should be quiet and cool.

Heavy rain and downpours will begin to roll in around lunch time Monday and continue through the early evening commute. Less than one inch of rain is expected.

While this would not normally produce flooding, this time the ground is saturated from Saturday's rain and can not handle much more rain so any additional rain may trigger more flooding.

In addition to fresh water flooding, coastal flooding is possible down at the shore for Monday's morning high tide cycle, which takes place around 10 a.m.

Stay with the NBC10 First Alert Weather Team for additional updates on Monday's heavy rain and flood potential.
