Scattered rainfall to continue across Delaware Valley Tuesday

Tuesday night will bring some more scattered showers Tuesday afternoon and evening as the National Weather Service has allowed Flash Flood Watches for most of the area to expire early. 

After a wet morning, most of the heavy rain has moved on. However, you can expect more leftover showers to pass through during the afternoon commute. The rain should let up by this evening, leaving cloudy skies and cooler temperatures behind. 

Tuesday’s storms prompted Flash Flood Warnings for parts of Philadelphia and the surrounding counties, as well as a Tornado Warning in Cape May County. 

The Flash Flood Watch was originally scheduled to remain in effect until 8 p.m. Tuesday as spotty showers linger overnight. Rain will continue in the forecast Wednesday, with showers expected all day. 

Parts of the area could see between one and two inches of rain per hour, which is needed desperately due to drought conditions. 

Temperatures are expected to stay in the 70s Tuesday and Wednesday before returning to the 80s Thursday. 

Looking ahead, after significant rainfall Tuesday and Wednesday, the rest of the week is set to be sunny, warmer and dry.
