    Heavy rain and flooding hit parts of the area on Monday, officially kicking off a wet week for the region.

    A flash flood warning was issued for Southeastern Montgomery County and Northern Philadelphia County and remained in effect until 8:15 p.m.

    The heavy rain caused flooding in small creeks, streams and roads throughout Philly and Montgomery County. Route 202 northbound in Upper Merion was closed due to the flooding but has since been reopened.

    Stranded drivers were stuck in flood waters in Norristown and other parts of the area.

    More rain will continue overnight into Tuesday and fog will move in, leading to low visibility during the morning rush.

    While the rain will start to clear on Wednesday, the wet weather will return on Thursday and Friday. We won't start to see the sun again until the weekend.
