Rainy day around the region for most of Monday
PHILADELPHIA (WTXF/AP) - Heavy rain has moved in to the Philadelphia region from both the northwest and south, and it'll continue moving east, down the Jersey Shore.
FOX 29's Sue Serio explained the rain is from two different systems just in time for the morning commute. She adds, we need the rain but the timing is very inconvenient.
Along with the rain will be thunder and lightning.
The day is starting out very muggy and humid.
The high temperature may reach 80 degrees Monday.
We may see a little sunshine at times, but there will be chances of rain and thunderstorms all day.
That means being extra careful on the roads.

Also, the National Weather Service confirmed Saturday's strong storms in western Pennsylvania spawned at least two tornadoes.
The first touched down about 6:30 p.m. near Scandia, a village in Warren County, about 65 miles southeast of Erie. The small tornado was on the ground for about two miles and its path was about 40 yards wide. The National Weather Service categorized it as EF1, with winds between 100 and 110 mph.
The other twister touched down about 10 miles east of Slippery Rock about 7:50 p.m. The weather service says a trained spotter saw that twister, which was moving about 30 mph. An estimate of that tornado's strength was not immediately available.
There was no major damage associated with either tornado.
