    What to Know

    • The NBC10 First Alert Weather Team has issued a First Alert from noon to 8 p.m. Monday for the potential of flooding.

    • Heavier rain and downpours will start to roll in around lunch time Monday and continue through the early evening commute.

    • Less than an inch of rain is expected but with the saturated ground, localized flooding could occur.

    Heavy rain once again inundated the Philadelphia region on Monday leading to flooding and some road closures during the evening commute.

    Delaware Avenue between Spring Garden and Dock Street as well as Kelly Drive between Fountain Green Driver and Reservoir Drive were all closed Monday due to flooding.

    The NBC10 First Alert Weather Team issued a First Alert for the entire region due to the flood threat.

    While there were a few showers Monday morning, most of the morning commute was quiet.

    Heavier rain and downpours started to roll in around lunch time Monday and continued through the early evening commute.

    While this typically wouldn’t produce flooding, this time the ground is saturated from Saturday's rain and can’t handle much more rain so any additional rain may trigger more flooding.
