Some Rain later tonight into Thursday Evening ! A general 1" to 3" of rain can be expected !

Yeah folks !

We'll get some good rains but I think only 1"-3" across much of the Del Valley. 1"-2" amounts will be most common east of PHL and 2"-3" in the NW suburbs ! Some small creeks and rivers could get to the threshhold of localized flooding in some areas, during Thursday afternoon and early evening.

Points North and West towards LNS, RDG, ABE, The Poconos and NW NJ > 2" to 4" will be more common mainly due to upslope conditions and extra orographic lift. These areas will have the best chance for some localized flooding problems.

For the Delaware Valley, The heaviest rain will fall tomorrow afternoon into early evening in a 4-6 hour period, on the pivot and boot from the trough.


I don't expect any widespread flooding from this event in the Delaware Valley !

Most of the heavier rainfall amounts will fall to the west of the Delaware Valley later tonight into tomorrow, while we have showers and periods of rain here, during that time. Once again our heavier rains fall tomorrow afternoon into the early evening hours in a 4-6 hour period.
