AccuWeather: Flooding Downpours, Spotty Severe Storms Today and Tonight

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect for the entire region through late tonight. Any storm that forms could bring a quick 1-3" rainfall that could rapidly flood roads and raise the levels on some flashy creeks and streams. As much as 2-4" has already fallen overnight into Thursday morning with more on the way, especially during the late afternoon and night time hours with any thunderstorms.

Today will feature mostly cloudy skies, periods of heavy rain in some areas and some strong spotty thunderstorms later in the afternoon. It's very warm and humid with a high of 89.

TONIGHT: More spotty downpours and thunderstorms roll through the region and don't die down until well after midnight. The big issues will be damaging wind gusts, an isolated tornado and flooding downpours. The low is 68.

FRIDAY: Clouds and a few early showers give way to a gorgeous day with some sun returning, a gusty wind and much lower humidity. The high is around 80.
