The first significant rain in weeks brought a Flood Warning to Philadelphia and flood advisories to surrounding areas Monday morning.

The National Weather Service issued the warning for parts of Philadelphia, especially the area near the Frankford Creek Monday morning.

"Rainfall totals in excess of one inch will cause minor flooding along the Frankford Creek in Philadelphia," said the weather service.

Up to an inch or more of rain could fall as thunderstorms and heavy rainfall hits, said the weather service.

The National Weather Service also issued flood advisories for poor drainage and flood-prone areas in Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Gloucester and Ocean counties.

Shortly after noon, with most of the heavy rainfall out of the area, but with more rain coming, the flood advisories extended to Kent and New Castle counties in Delaware as well as Salem, New Jersey.

Expect highs to remain in the 70s as rain remains into the afternoon, said the NBC10 First Alert Weather Team.
