Very high rainfall has fallen over southern parts of our area over the last two days. While we've seen around 1.5" here in Philadelphia, parts of New Castle and northern Kent Counties have seen 4" to 7". Once you get to southern Kent County in Delaware, you have totals over 7" and one location in Sussex County, Delaware is measuring rainfall right around a foot! An areal flood warning for flooded roads and streams remains posted in Kent County until 6:30PM Peak wind gusts with this system have ranged from the mid 30's to mid 40's, but have now decreased as the strongest wind axis is up by NYC.

TONIGHT: The heaviest rain is now over for the area with lingering drizzle and mist expected to continue into the first half of the weekend. We will be on the lookout however for a period of some steadier rain late tonight into early Saturday as one more piece of upper level energy rotates through our area. It stays cloudy and cool, with a high of 69.

SATURDAY: A spotty shower isn't out of the question, but the day is mainly dry with morning clouds giving way to some peeks of sunshine, especially areas south (good news for NASCAR fans in Dover!) The high rebounds to 75.
SUNDAY: Clouds give way to more sun. Another spotty shower can't be ruled out, but most areas remain dry. The high improves to 75.

MONDAY: Partly sunny skies appear likely with a slightly warmer high of 77. A spotty shower still can't be ruled-out, but it's mainly dry.

TUESDAY: Look for a partly cloudy day with a high of 72.

WEDNESDAY: This looks like a partly sunny day with a seasonably cool high around 70.

THURSDAY: Another partly sunny day is in store. The high is 70.

FRIDAY: Sun gives way to increasing clouds with a high of 72.
