    Sunday Night: Thunderstorms, some severe. Heavy Rain.

    Monday: Windy and less humid, partly sunny with a chance of showers.

    Thunderstorms are expected to move back in this evening, some of which may be severe.  The biggest concerns will be high winds, heavy rain, and some small hail is possible.  Rain moves offshore by early morning but there is still a chance for a few showers or a thunderstorm Monday.

    Monday is a transitional day with sunshine, a few showers and very gusty winds.  This will usher in some cooler air and Monday night temperatures fall back into the 50s for most. 

PHILADELPHIA -

The rain started falling before Saturday morning in Philadelphia. Some of the heaviest rain will fall overnight, but there's now expected to be a second round of heavy rain on Sunday afternoon.

"Heavy rains will fall overnight, but there will be a second round of heavy rains Sunday afternoon," the weather service says.

As a result of these periods of excessive rainfall, there could be flooding in areas with poor drainage, urban areas and along small creeks and streams.

The flooding could continue for several hours after the rains have ended.

And out FOX Futurecast shows there could even be a little bit of mixed precipitation on the back end of this storm early Monday in our area...
