Monday's shining sun has taken a cloudy turn. Rain and cooler temperatures are coming. 

A flood watch has been issued by the National Weather Service Monday afternoon for the I-95 corridor and all the Pennsylvania suburbs north and west. The flood watch begins Tuesday evening through Wednesday night. Also, a coastal flood advisory is in effect from Tuesay at 7 p.m. to Wednesday at 3 a.m.

"This is a very significant storm with a flood threat that may bring multiple inches of rain," said NBC10 First Alert Weather chief meteorologist Glenn "Hurricane" Schwartz.

You can expect a slight chance of showers to start after rush hour on Monday.

Temperatures will drop to the mid-50s by Tuesday and thunderstorms and heavy rain are expected Tuesday night into Wednesday. The heaviest rainfall will come Wednesday night with 3 to 5 inches of rain in parts of our area. That rainy weather could last through Thursday.

A massive storm moved through 15 states from the Midwest to the east coast on Sunday. The storms brought fatalities. Two people were killed in Oklahoma due to the tornadoes. Heavy rains have caused property damage, flooding and power outages. The storm will bring the wet weather to the Philadelphia region starting Monday. 

But, we will dry out by the end of the week.
